          I am so excited I haven’t finished last lessons warp yet!

            I think there is a typo in the redenting sample 1 pdf. Shouldn’t the denting (p/d) read 1 for 12 epi in a 12 reed, not 2?

                You are right! The PDF has been corrected if you would like to re-download it again.

                    Thanks! I’m ready to try rethreading tomorrow.

                  Why would you not just put fewer threads in the warp instead of cutting them out?

                      Hi Dorothy,
                      Yes you could put fewer threads in the warp for sure but if you happen to notice once you’ve started weaving that your selvedges are too dense and giving you those smiley faces, you can snip a few threads off on each sides and it will help. It’s a great little trick when you’re sampling and you’re not too sure how the selvedges will behave when they are crammed.

                      Could you please clarify what size cotton is this? 16/2 or 20/2??

                          The sample is woven with 40/2 linen in both warp and weft. Jane used 30/2 silk as the weft in the final sample.

                          My goodness! I wish I had known about this way of correcting smiley faces with a dense selvedge when I wove my net curtains some years ago which had spaces and ‘squished and kissed’ elements along with lace! I spent ages having to fuss after each pick to encourage the warp to behave. Thankyou! The curtains are lovely but took so long and needn’t have been so.

                            I’m looking at this episode on the new website and don’t see the comments anywhere.  I’m sure I’m doing something wrong.   I’d like to make the switch right away but sure don’t want to lose the comments.   I just went to the Ravelry site — hadn’t done that before — and noticed that people make comments about the various episodes there too.   But I really like seeing the comments attached to the episode itself.
