Apparently it is in “introduction to sample one.” Feedback: I needed to use exact wording. Eg if I typed “taking out warp” nothing came up, only “taking out your warp.” So it took a few minutes. Also I found that the box I was typing into was very very slow. Not sure if that was just on my end but this box I’m typing into is fine. As in letters I was typing were not showing up for a while.
Where can we find a demo of cutting warp threads and replacing?
How do you remember later which yarns etc you have used? Write it down as you go? And also how do I know when there’s a reply to my comment other than checking back?
I loved this! But I find it very frustrating not being able to see the detail clearly that you are describing. A camera directly above, maybe? Zooming right in on the details?November 20, 2019 at 6:31 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 2.3.3 – Pulling the colour from your picture #156731
I never understand why people feel guilty for having a stash… I’d love to have all these colours to play with!November 19, 2019 at 6:39 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 2.2.2 – The Sample Game – Name that Graphic #156797
I wish we could have closer close-ups of the detail.November 13, 2019 at 12:48 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 3.4.2 – Weft Faced, Plain Weave Sequences at the Loom #156092
Answering my own question but there might be other ways… In the video when Jane tightens up the hem stitches, they stay tightened up. I’m guessing it’s just a property of the yarn she uses vs what I was using, as mine didn’t stay tight. The “knots” loosened off as soon as I let go. SO what I did was undo the original sloppy hemstitching and re-do holding the yarn tight so the previous stitch is held firmly until I’ve done the next, and so on across the width. I had done several picks of plain weave with the same yarn, not just two, so I was able to pull enough of that out at the bottom to use for re- hem stitching.November 11, 2019 at 3:48 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 3.4.2 – Weft Faced, Plain Weave Sequences at the Loom #156090
Thank you! Jane mentions her weighted floating selvedges being in place in the above video, I knew the full instructions must be somewhere 🙂November 11, 2019 at 3:46 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 3.4.2 – Weft Faced, Plain Weave Sequences at the Loom #156089
Another question, if I’m allowed two… (two-part question!) a) is there a trick to getting really tight hemstitching? (I tried but mine is slipping down,) b) once I know the trick should I undo and re-do the hemstitching that’s too loose, or is there another remedy?November 10, 2019 at 3:27 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 3.4.2 – Weft Faced, Plain Weave Sequences at the Loom #156087
Which lesson explains the weighted floating selveges please?September 24, 2019 at 2:07 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 2.6 – Dressing Your Loom Back to Front – Tying onto the Front Apron and Tensioning the Warp #157673
What would you do if you had a loom with a cloth apron? ( I do!)September 18, 2019 at 5:13 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 3.8.1 – Introduction to Supplementary Warps #155920
I’m hoping it will all come clear in the next section or when I actually do it, because I feel lost!August 11, 2019 at 12:43 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 1.3 – Making a Good Warp – Multiple Ends in Your Warp and Wider Warps on a Warping Board #157731
Ok thanks, so I guess if you change at the front end you can tie to the last peg, but if you change at the cross end you have to tie to the other warp thread or threads.August 10, 2019 at 2:26 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 1.3 – Making a Good Warp – Multiple Ends in Your Warp and Wider Warps on a Warping Board #157729
Just say you had to change colour or whatever and broke off and tied to the end near the cross instead of the other end. What would happen when you went to put it on the loom as you would no longer have a nice loop where the cross is to put the back apron rod through but you woud have some loops and some loose ends?August 10, 2019 at 1:51 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 1.2 – Making a Good Warp – Warping on a Warping Board #157702
Does it get explained somewhere what you do with the thread you had in your hand while you are counting at the cross? Looks like you wound it around somehow?
