Here the crotches are screwed onto the uprights.
This is my first go at the heddle support rods. I needed to adjust the shape of the Y where the heddle rod will rest--the first attempt, the heddle rod will barely stay in place, but one nudge and it'll fall. I looked at a couple looms and came up with an improved shape. Now the heddle rests comfortably on there--no risk of falling off.
I found (again) and started watching the Sami/Norwegian video of a woman who was demonstrating how to set up the loom, starting with a woven band with weft threads that become the warp threads of a woven piece. I have a bunch of Fisherman's wool that was given to me recently and this will be a great project to use that yarn. I think I'd like to try this...
First, though, I need to finish weaving the Perle Cotton piece I have on my inkle loom. Better get on it!
