|3in - 4 in section of the original warp. The rest is the same or worse|
The project that was on my warp weighted loom has been there for a few years. It was getting ratty anyway, but I'm pretty sure that Kevin has been playing with the warp threads, knowing how much he likes to chew apart wool projects which are important to me. I was going to try to repair a few of them, but it turned out to be just too many to bother with. The fact that I hadn't tied on the tablet woven warp header in enough places, so the tension was uneven, really meant that I had to put a new project on.

I am hoping I made my warp long enough to be of value. The cereal box weaving cards are also not authentic, but they are functional and cheap.
Next step is to knit the heddles onto the heddle rods or rod, depending on if I do a tabby or a twill.
