The following is a time table of the tasks Group A performed on Thursday, November 11th, for the construction of the tablet-woven border required for the warp weighted loom.
|1:17PM||Group A begins measuring required threads for tablet-woven border|
|1:24PM||48 yards are wound around upright frame|
|1:25PM||48 yards are cut into two yard lengths each|
|1:29-1:35PM||Group A threaded the string through the tablet weaving cards|
|1:38PM||Cards are stacked and ends knotted into a single overhand knot|
|1:44PM||Using upright frame, Group A began combing the warp threads so the cards would have mobility|
|1:49PM||Group A begins weaving tablet-woven border on the upright frame|
|2:10PM||Group A attaches woven border to warp weighted loom|
|2:13PM||Group A begins winding the thread around the pegs and loom structure, warping the loom.|
|2:20PM||Group A is replaced by Group B and takes a break to practice individual tablet weaving|
|3:20PM||Group A goes back to creating the border on the warp weighted loom|
|3:45PM||Group A returns to individual tablet weaving|
|4:45PM||Group A helps clean up the materials for the end of lab|
The following is the steps done in order to warp the loom:
- Place cone of yarn on group and gather up end of thread.
- Pull loop of thread through the shed, followed by looming a 5m loop over the bottom peg.
- Rotate cards to change shed.
- Beat down thread and continue until roughly 1/3 of expected border length (50cm) is completed.
Measurements required for this process were as follows:
Calculate expected number of warp threads in starting band, based on test warp #/cm times two for using the double method. This resulted in roughly 50 cm needed to be woven, with each group attempting to weave roughly a third each.
