ok, so i'm an idiot. i *knew* that the countermarche action requires weight...and like an idiot, i only tied up the 4 shafts needed for 2/2 twill.
the minute i tied up the 2 plain weave treadles, it was perfectly balanced and ready to go. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
i have *got* to stop thinking like this is a jack loom. stupid mistake.
but, it's fixed *now*....just in time for bed. *g*
will weave tomorrow!
