Monday night I dealt with the tie up. Last night I tied it all up and did 4 shots of waste yarn. And then I realised that I'd tied it up wrong. I'm aiming for double width huck lace, but I failed to tie every second treadle the "other" way. So I was basically getting a very dense 3-1 twill. Sigh.
And I think I may have already broken a warp thread (hit by the shuttle, I think).
I guess tonight I will be retying 4 treadles and trying again (maybe with slightly more shuttle control, and probably more care).
I have a funny feeling this may turn into a nightmare project, depending on how easily my warp breaks...
