      Hello
      I finished this lesson some time ago and decided to do a project to practice what I learned. I also decided to put on a long warp, 11 yards. It was the longest warp I had ever done. For that reason, and a few others reasons, I have just finished my project now. I used 4/8 cotton to weave some baby blankets, and I based my design on the lesson gamp. I am pretty pleased with the results. Thanks Jane for being an awesome teacher!DSC_0043 (2)

        Thanks Ginette.  I think I will keep weaving and hope for the best.

            Hello

            I am close to finishing the 2 stripe warp.  I did all the lessons samples first and then wove the scarf.  I am part way through weaving a second scarf on the warp.  The left hand selvedge started looking strange like the tension was different.  When I investigated I realized the fabric was not winding onto the front beam completely evenly.  It is close but not perfect.  When I left some of the warp empty, because I plan to do fringes, some of the unwoven warp threads did not wind on top of the fabric, they slipped down.  There are several inches 8+” of unwoven warp between the two scarves.  This is hard to describe in words.  If you could see my loom it would be clear what happened.  I put 3 wooden sticks at even intervals around the front beam, and I think this has helped quite a bit.  Is there a better solution for this warp?  I did wonder if I should unwind what is on the front beam and try to straighten it out.  I am not confident I could do that.

            In future I will check to make sure things are winding perfectly.  If there is a trick to help this not happen in the future it would be wonderful to know.  I have taken some pictures and I will add them to this post.  I took them after I added the sticks and wove a bit more.

            Thanks.  Jeannie

            Oops.  The picture files are too large.  I will resize them and put them in another post. J
