I just started weaving the first towel for Season 6 Episode 2 on my Louet David. I tied up for sinking shed, which took so many cords I had to make some new ones. So I just tried to do the hem on the first towel, using the Y treadles, and, wow, I can barely push them down, since most of the treadles are pulling down 6 of the 8 shafts, and my weak legs just can't do it. (I'm in physical therapy working on strength, button at all ready for this level of challenge yet.) So I'm planning to redo the tie-up back to the rising shed version, which I hope will be easier? Your nice photos of both sides will be a great help to me looking at the reverse.
I'll decide which tie-up will be easiest for each towel as I go, if this one turns out well.
