The winding on...

I kept the warp chains separate as I wound on...

It was very slow.

I ran out of packing paper for the warp on the back beam,
so I used red Christmas wrapping paper,
which seemed to work OK last time.
Finally, the multi-texture shawl warp is wound on the loom.
All set to begin weaving, but first,
need to choose the weft.


Tying on...

Tying on 11 different yarns of the new shawl warp, 32 ends of each, onto the tiny ends of what's left of the old shawl warp, then pulling the new warp ends through the reed.

Separate warp chains for each of the 11 different yarns
