the immobile chains

Guess i'll start with a yarn porn photo and then gripe.i'm threading a dummy warp to save on precious yarn.1200 threads.This is never going to end. Then i'll tie on the chains to the dummy warp.Not fun.Guess who is the dummy.
After this weaving will be as they say here singing while sewing. Although this is going to be quite a week with the Christmas cake production to be held at a friend's house. Just now my oven had to go KAPUT.
Here's the tieup for Oelsner's 8887 crepe, downloaded from the handweavers net, but woven double width.

8887 oelsner i'm concentrating on the sewing a top with 3/4 sleeves and a rolled collar.Very 1950s!
