Finally a post about the harness to sidestick tie-up, as a reminder for everyone who might find this confusing to remember from set-up to set-up...begin by setting up the sidesticks so that the ties are between the lease sticks and the harnesses. The lease sticks should be between the ties and the warp beam. These photographs are all taken from the right side of the loom, so the warp beam is on my right and the beater and breast beam are on my left. This will demonstrate the tie-up on the right side. To tie up the left side of the harnesses, simply perform the same process heading in the the opposite direction.
We'll be finishing it off with a Clove Hitch in a Bight. So bring up another loop on the inside of the sidestick with the tail hanging to the front of the loom (just to keep in the habit of doing that).
To tie up the other side of the harnesses, simply repeat this sequence, but go in the opposite direction.
