Since every group took on different steps in the process of setting up our loom, the data is spread out between all of us. Group B was mainly responsible for assembling the loom, though we also helped establish the border of the weave and allocate warp threads to weights.
|width of bottom||81cm|
|shed rod length||37cm|
|width at hole 4||38cm|
|length of heddle rod||83cm|
|width at top hole||74cm|
|width from Y to Y at the top||83cm|
|length of top rod||70cm|
|height of right upright||66cm|
|height of left upright||118cm|
|distance of bottom from wall (right upright)||94cm|
|distance of bottom from wall (left upright)||92cm|
After a long tablet weaving interlude, we returned to the loom to continue the work done by prior groups in beginning the border of the weave. We completed 10 cm in 12 min (3:18-3:30pm), working at a rate of roughly .83cm/min.
Roughly an hour later — after a lot of untying, retying, and detangling — the starting border was fully attached to the upper rod of the loom. Its width was 44cm. We allocated 7 threads to each loom weight, roughly estimating our thread total to be at about 200.
