Thank you for your quick reply Sandra. I’ll give this a try!
I tried opening up the sett on Parrot and had a heck of a time with my tension afterwards. I’d like to try doing it again with this warp. Any tips on cutting off and maintaining the right tension?

Thank you Sandra. That gives me a BIG sigh of relief!

I am dressing my loom back to front for the first time. The warp is the color and weave gamp from season 2. When I was winding the warp, I used multiple threads in my hand (also for the first time). I followed the sequences until it came to the sequence DDDD/LLLL. For that one, I did DD, DDLL, LL. That means I will have to pull threads between sections in the cross. This is going to make a mess of the warp, isn’t it? I hope I explained this well enough!
Thanks for your quick response!
I am not far from the beginning of the warp so I was going to wind back and tie on again. Then try to evenly weight the threads on the back. Am I being too hopeful??
I’ve finished the Asymmetry sample and loved the idea of changing a warp color. I now have a warp on the loom with small 1-2 thread stripes of a color that is not working. In total it would be 24 threads that would need to be replaced. Is this many threads recommended? They are evenly spaced throughout the warp.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your reply Sandra. I think I can attach an apron rod to my back beam. Is a raddle necessary for warping back to front? Not sure where it would go on this loom.April 28, 2020 at 4:43 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 2.1 – Dressing Your Loom Back to Front – Warping a Loom 1, cotton boucle warp #163888
I have a Norwood loom with sectional back beam. I’ve always warped front to back but I’m not sure I am getting as even a tension as I could. When I tie on to the back beam, the ties must go around the beam on top of each other along with the threads. Could this be the problem? Someone suggested I take the pegs out but I don’t see how that would change the fact that everything is laying on top of each other. Thanks for your help. I love these classes!
