      I went ahead and bought a six dent reed.  Now that I am working with it, I am really glad as I made several denting errors and can’t imagine how many I would make if I had to do special counting.  😂

        I posted this in Ravelry but then remembered I could ask here. Could I use an 8 dent reed and set for 6? Will the yarn (JST mohair) get too abraded? So eager to weave but forgot I don’t have a 6 dent reed.

            The finale piece Jane weaves is a scarf where she opened the sett and used silk as weft.  It’s not an exercise per se but  an option she shows as what is possible with this warp.

              Ah, yes, I see now around 29 minute mark she identifies the missing color as Sweet Potato Pie.  I wish that had been listed with the other silk colors on the ordering page for the sample kit. It’s a beautiful scarf.

                  I noticed bowing but did not figure out there was a front and back.   Thanks for the tip!

                    I also have a Baby Wolf.  I have the Schacht raddle and have used it on top of the castle clamped with similar grips that what Jane demonstrates. I also have clamped it with the clamps that Schacht designed for their rigid heddle looms—a Block of wood and an L-shaped bolt.  I did try placing the raddle on the back beam as Schacht designed it for and also on beater which I had seen someone else demonstrate.  Neither worked well for me.   No surprise: Jane knows best 😁 what works for me.

                    I recently bought a different kind of raddle, one inspired by the built-in Louet raddles.  This is a 3-d printed raddle that has four slots per inch. It have used it twice and I much prefer it to the Schacht raddle.

                      Thanks, Ginette.  Funny, I thought scissors were a bad thing to have to use! I am learning so much. Judi

                        Thanks, Sandra. I reviewed the episode and was able to work out the distribution of threads in the raddle so it is pretty well centered–off the obligatory 1/2 inch or so.

                        I encountered a new problem, though. So I will post that as a separate question.

                          Hello!

                          I am Judi from the Eastern Shore of Maryland.  My holiday/birthday present this year was a Baby Wolf 4 shaft loom to launch me into the world of floor looms. I have woven on a rigid heddle for a year or so. I am a newbie to weaving but having been playing with color and shape for awhile through other media.  I am loving what I am learning here!
