January's towel - threading

Are any other weavers threading this yet?  This one was kind of tricky to thread.  I don't think I have ever woven Spot Bronson.  There are so many traditional structures I haven't explored - like the Summer & Winter summer weaving I did for the first time last year.

I complicated the threading process a bit because I did not have enough heddles on one shaft to be shaft 1, so I used shafts 1 through 4 as shaft 1, and used 5 through 7 as shafts 2 through 4.  I will do this to avoid having to move heddles, which I do not enjoy (to put it mildly).  I hope I did not introduce errors by being lazy.

Next step, sleying the dragon - uh, I mean the reed.

Who else is weaving Spot Bronson towels this month?
