|Threading heddles requires care and concentration and is a perfect activity to break up.|
Between Aleve and yoga, I was able to get it under control, but I remind myself, never again! I am taking the advice offered by so many in this Ravelry weaver's support group to get up and walk around every so often. So I am taking my time threading the warp for this next project, which is a good idea in itself. Threading is fairly crucial to the weaving process and I really don't want to make a threading error because the I will just be redoing it which means more sitting at the loom.
I thread from back to front and take off the front beam and the beater so I can get closer to the heddles. I have a low stool for the treading and I keep reminding myself to maintain good posture. Making sure stools and benches are the right height for the job was another bit of good Warped Weaver advice. My legs just fit under the cloth beam, so I can sit head on. Fortunately, I have four harness and six treadles, because the treadles get in the way of the stool, so I will need to sit at an angle for the middle threads.
