              Hi Carol,
              There’s the JST logo at the top of the page on the left corner, you should have the eye and pdf symbols at the bottom of the logo when you’re viewing this episode.

                Hi Ginette and Jane,
                I can’t seem to access the pdf’s for this online guild. I am running a Windows 10 computer. Please help.

                    Hi Jean, have you had problems downloading other PDFs from the other episodes? In the meantime, I will email the 2 PDFs for this episode to you.

                        Hi! I haven’t started on the sample yet (waiting for my order of 8/2 cotton from you guys — due on April 2), but I’m watching the episode to familiarize myself ahead of time.
                        Question re: weaving to a square. Should I judge whether it’s square when the warp is under the usual weaving tension, or should I release the tension and then check?
                        And on the 4/4 repeats — do I create the interlock of threads at the selvedges (the dive & bump) or just loop the edge threads across 4 picks of the other color? (I read your answer about the 3 and 1, but 4 seems a lot to “scallop”)?

                            Hi, I can’t watch the last episode on Asymmetry at the loom. It takes me to a place that says I need to pay $75 to be a member to watch it.

                                Hi Ruth, I know it’s not what you want to hear but it seems to be working at my end. Have you tried again? Maybe reboot your computer or device. Let us know.

                              I am having the same issue as Ruth but with 2.2.3. Rebooting does not help. Logging in again does not help. Anne.

                                When I print the pdfs I get pages 1 & 2 on the first, and pages 4 & 5 on the second. Is there a page 3? I am running MAC High Sierra 10.13.6

                                    Hi Carol, that’s correct. Pages 1 & 2 are pages for the first sample and then 4 & 5 are the continuing pages for course. In the previous lesson, you would have downloaded pages 1, 2 & 3 of the course.

                                    Hello again. I am working away on this warp – learning a ton – and am getting ready to resley the reed to change the sett. I have a lot of 3/2 cotton that I’d love to experiment with. Using Jane’s method of determining the sett it seems it might be OK to use this /2 cotton with the warp sett at 12 epi. What do you think?
                                    Thanks.

                                        I think 12 epi would be a good place to start and sample with. After that sample you could open up your sett to 10 epi and see how that turns out after it’s been washed. What I found when I have several cones of a yarn I’m not familiar with, I’ll make several samples so I can refer to them when I’m planning out projects. So handy to have!

                                        Love it. This has given me a whole new concept of designing. Have used Fibonacci stripes for years but this has given me all kinds of new ideas for them

                                          This has given me so many new ideas for Fibonacci.

                                            Hello, I m from Holland and maybe I have missed it, but please can you explain the words:”checks, plaids and zingers” for me. Specially in the context they are used here.
                                            Thank you!

                                                Hi Jouel! Checks and plaids are different styles of graphic that you might want to use when designing your own cloth. A zinger is a line, or stripe, of a contrasting colour. The zinger makes your cloth more interesting and attracts your attention – like the red stripe in the Asymmetry sample Jane designed with greys, black and white. Hope this helps!

                                                I lost my pattern collection when a certain online magazine bit the dust. I officially couldn’t care less. Thanks for giving me the power!

                                                  Don’t worry about graph paper, just sketch … I giggled.  I have never been able to draw a straight line (perhaps why I prefer computer graphics and coding), but I persisted… my notebook looks nothing like your samples, but in my head I have tons, and tons, and tons of ideas… I just wish I could put them properly on paper.  Can’t wait to sample and explore!
