If you've been following along the last few days, you will remember that now we're at the tricky part of the warping: passing the knots forward through the heddle eyes and the reed. Here they are part way into their journey. They have to pass the rocky shoals of 880 heddle eyes.
Gentle coaxing and slight tugging got them all safely through in 15 minutes. Then came another hazard, navigating the knots through the reed.
Home port is in sight! Time for a celebratory beverage.
