The new heddles arrived, and I put them on yesterday afternoon. Each harness has 140 heddles now.

Last night I started threading. It has been a long time since I've put on a warp, and I had to figure out what stool to use, how to sit, how to hold my hands, etc., etc. I was discouraged when I realized it took me an hour and a half to thread 1/6 of the warp. This morning, though, I managed to do another repeat in about 45 minutes. At that rate it will all be threaded after another three hours' work. I can live with that.

George is in a fever to start weaving. I want to have the warping finished before the weekend, and then we can weave the towels together. I hope this is fun for us both!
