I'll be past 300 threads this evening..

So with the 11 cards...I started the warping process. I am now close to 300 threads and have come to realize that this way is indeed faster and easier. I have the borrowed warping board next to the loom and I pass the ball of warp through the shed, turn the cards, pass the ball around the pegs of the warping board and back again, back through the shed, turn the cards again. Each pass makes two threads that we have guessed are about 5 yards long. The spacing is also much better with the this process so I'm curious to see how many threads I will use this time.

Rough hour count: 6 so far
