I've got as far as tying the weights to the warp bundles and chaining the warps together. I was not planning on doing the chaining, but because I ended up sing fewer weights than I had planned the chains are really helping to keep the warp spread evenly. Plus I can anchor the bottom of the work to the sides to the loom which will help prevent draw in. I still need to knit my heddles, once I get that done I can start weaving!
I do have to say, the 5 inch wide warp looks pretty silly on the 4 foot wide loom, but what are you gonna do? Once I get the hang of this I plan to do a large piece of fabric, perhaps for a hood, and that should not look quite so silly.
