Order Out of Chaos
But, as previously reported here and elsewhere, there was light at the end of the Okra Tunnel! I have a rare Friday off, and have taken the opportunity of no other obligations to finally face the mess that is my turned overshot warp. I realized one sleepless night a few weeks ago that I wasn't making headway with it because I kept running at it head first, all at once. I figured out that it needed to be looked at in small chunks, so today, that's what I've done.
Then, I started threading. I've gotten the two inch hem through, and the first section of green, but must stop for now, due to the weird angle I need to sit in to reach the heddles. The treadles are in my way, and I haven't figured out how to move them to avoid sitting on the chair "side saddle." Maybe that will come to me in the wee hours, too. Much inspiration finds me then.
