How to make a spherical doodle weaving:

1. Established up the warp (these are the vertical threads). I did this by cutting a total bunch of threads and then taping them to the side of the hoop. I did not measure, just eye-balled. I also loosely taped the hanging threads up to the side which is why it appears to be like like there is so significantly tape.

I ultimately want to weave like I would draw, but for now I instinctively go base to major. You can also go back again in and fill spaces if there are gaps. The fork really aids to make it all limited.
