      I solved it. I started wondering what was different this time, which was the shaft end replacements from the Spring II. One shaft end came out, and a couple of unused heddles slipped through and got entangled in the other shaft. I now have all the loose heddles tied up securely, so all is good in the weaving world again.

        Hi Sandra, Thank you for your response. I have watched the episode a few times, and I think I understand the turns.  I believe my mistake is in thinking there was a turn, while in fact there was no turn in the undulating twill. I think that was my mistake, which  I wanted to confirm. So that’s OK if you don’t have an answer. I will just have to try it another time and see what happens when I change my treadling. Thank you! 🙂

          That’s a good thought, Sandra. I will be sure to check it next time. Thank you and happy holidays!

            Question: I understand how to wind 4 threads at the time, but what about 8 threads at the time to get a 4 end stripe sequence? Do I double the threads and place two of them between my fingers as if they were just one thread?

            I would love to learn how to wrap with 8 at the time, so I don’t need to cut and tie so much. Thanks for your help!

                  Oh. Now I get it. Thank you Sandra. I have a countermarch loom, and I keep forgetting to translate the tie up to both sinking and rising. Hopefully it now sinks in (no pun intended) 🙂

                  With Gratitude!

                    Hi, I posted a new thread yesterday, but of course I can’t find it… 😱 So,  I will piggyback on this one here. Can you please tell me what the tie up for a warp faced twill look like? Jane said she changed it ot 1 2 3 4, but I am not getting it. I have an 8 shaft loom if that makes a difference to the answer. Many thanks!

                      Thank you Ed! I appreciate you taking the time to respond. I will pay closer attention to what my hands are doing with that shuttle! I agree that those gaps disappear in the wash, but I prefer not to have them in the first place. I have been loving your work, so you too: Weave on 🙂

                              Hi, no eye or PDF on my Mac. I will try to find the missing eye for a start and then see. Sony

                                Hi Claudia,

                                Tie on and put heavy weight on the treadles, so the shafts lift up. Once the shafts are raised, the heddles are at eye level and life is good! You can use bricks, metal, whatever you have on hand that is heavy enough to do the job. My breast beam isn’t movable, while the back one is. That is one of the reasons I have typically worked F2B. But I find this way makes it very comfortable to work B2F.

                                Hope it helps :), Sony from Victoria.
