One of the problems I have had in the past is that the back beam on this wonderful loom is curved! So that means that my tension box does not fit on the beam. I had the bright idea last time to switch the 2 back beams since the one closest to the floor is square instead of round.
Now there is a a groove on the curved beam that I could use the threader plate and do it, but I love the yardage counter on my tension box! No more counting turns, just keep an eye on the counter!
Here she is all wound up and ready to go. I wound all 19 bouts this time, it is time to see just how far I can reach. I will be threading her with a simple overshot pattern, but not til I get back from vacation.
I had a ton of yardage on those cones, probably enough to load a 25 yard warp. I decided to just fasten the loaded tension box to the spool rack and put it in the corner, that way if all goes well, I will just hook her up and do it again!
Now to pack! Have a great week, I will try to post next Friday with beach pictures.
Until then, Happy Weaving, Tina
