        Hi there, am on my 3rd project EVER and have watched again and again the episodes in Season 1 where Jane is warping on a board on a wall with 2 threads…can’t remember is there one where she uses more?  I remember her mentioning it.

        Here’s the thing:  I did 2 threads no problem on my very first project, though I did twist the yarn below my hand a few times.  3 is near killing me, and I wonder what my problem is.  Is there video of a hand manipulating 3 or more threads to warp on a warping board?  Is it dumb to try to do more than 2 this soon in my weaving career?  I am in the process of doing 5 warp chains for a blanket and already have fumbled through 2 of those chains with 3 threads in hand.  My 3rd landed me with ugly yarn snarls on my self wound cones…your soonest help possible deeply appreciated!

          Hi Leslie,

          Jane does show how to warp with more than one thread in Season 1, Episode 1.3 – Multiple Ends in Your Warp and Wider Warps on a Warping Board.

          Also, there’s a picture on the forum on how to hold the threads in your hand, half way down the page

          It just takes practice to use more than 2 and it’s never too early to try it out 🙂
