Doug built a contraption coming from the ceiling. We used a copper pipe for the horzontal bar and we made sure that the bar and the back beam were aligned properly.
Thera Berkhout was visiting and the two of us then beamed on a long 10 meter warp, 31 inches wide. It is a warp for tea towels - 16/2 cotton set at 40 epi.
There is less bending and kneeling or sitting on the floor but.... we still had a cross that would not allow us to move the lease sticks up freely. We "spanked" the warp - probably much harder than was necessary - but it did not help. We still had to "untangle" the threads at the cross. If anyone knows a solution, please let me know. May be I need to change the way to wind a warp also?
And we did not just work on warps. We had a great time travelling around and enjoying ourselves! Below are Doug and Thera enjoying a walk in the woods.
