        Is there a trick to it? Or concerns I should be aware of before I try it?

        and do you go by Ginny?  We may have met at Jane’s…..

          Hi Freda,  I am not sure what you all mean b a chain but what I do is just lay contrast yarn over or under every 20 ends as I go.  That way I can easily know where I am when making a big warp.  I can count to twenty without losing track. Ha!

          then when I’m finished I just remove that serpentine yarn and it’s all even.  Did any of that make sense?

            Hello everyone,

            My name is Jean and I live in Alpine, Tx – which is a town in Far West Texas near the Big Bend National park.  I have been weaving off and on for almost 2 years now.  I am absolutely a beginner.  I have been fortunate to attend two workshops with Jane and learned so much.  I bought an 8harness 10treadle Louet Spring loom and am just now starting my second project on it.  A blanket out of Harrisville Shetland wool.

            I also knit some, try to spin and fly airplanes.  I’m a flight instructor but have taken a break from instructing lately.

            Anyway, it’s very nice to “meet” you all.  I am looking forward to these online classes and I’m sure I’ll have umpteen questions as we go along!  I actually already have two, but will post those in another thread 🙂

            Cheers

             

            PS : hmmm, don’t know why it says Norma.  Might be from my credit card….
