Theory is, that this way, the warp is spread out so that you need little weaving before your warp is ready to start weaving.Not sure if that really was the case but having just the 4 knots worked very well. Definitely will use this method again.
Far to warm outside (32C officially today but my thermometer was reading 39C!! this afternoon).
I had to much sun last Wednesday and have suffered the days after. I was unable to see my daughter arrive at the finish on Friday. That hurt. I'm a lot better now compared to last week but keeping out of the sun as much as possible.
