and how to read a simple weaving draft.
I finished winding the warp onto the beam after work.
After dinner, I sat down to start threading. And quickly figured out that I calculated 8 * 4 + 2 * 2 = 34 when I wound the two outer warp sections two weeks ago. Not 36. At least this is a pretty easy problem to overcome with a couple of intarsia bobbins (which I haven't used for knitting in at least 20 years) and a couple of shower curtain rings for weight.
As my friend Jen always says, MIT teaches mathematics, and not arithmetic. And I took as little math as I could get away with for my political science degree.
I'll wait for daylight to start threading. I finally understand why Nonny used to hand me her needles to thread when we stitched side by side in the evenings. When did all those individual threads become so fuzzy and hard to see?
