An occasional window on Hamble Campbell's world.

One of the reasons, I think, for my not getting a particularly good shed, is demonstrated in this photo.

Incidentally, a shed is the gap that is made when the warp threads are separated so that the shuttle can pass between them carrying the weft thread, and so producing the weaving.

I did not have sufficient proper cord to tie up the eight treadles and had to make do and mend. You can see in this forest of knots - some proper cord, some parcel string, garden twine, bailer twine and a pair of old shoe laces - a recipe for failure if ever there was.
