Sleyed

The knotting and threading is finished, and the reed is sleyed.



I've wound 32 yards of warp thread on each of 6 film canisters weighted with washers, to become selvedge threads.



Tomorrow, I'll thread and sley the selvedge threads, and lash the warp onto the apron. Then it'll be time to weave some tests to be sure the new modules are working right, and the original modules haven't decided to take a holiday.
