    Leslie,

    I second Gale’s suggestion – just tie previous warp end to next one when changing colors. (at the top or bottom of the warping sequence of course), Also, I learned that if you are warping with more than one end (i.e. 2, 4 etc.) you can just tie the new color ends to the previous ends in one knot (I usually use overhand knot) and continue on. No need to tie each old one to each new one. And you can tie one knot even if you are switching to fewer or more ends  (for example -you can tie a bunch of 3 warp ends to a bunch of 4 warp ends in one knot). At least I have not had any problems doing this.

    Wow – very effective design! Is the tencel you use from one particular manufacturer or vendor or do you get it from different sources? The tencel is these scarves looks very nice.

    I am definitely going to have to try this!

    Can’t wait to hear how it works out!

    OMG you must have been weaving day & night! It is beautiful and the photos are a brilliant idea!

    So you find the end of the monofilament (at the end of the scarf) and just pull it out? It doesn’t make the rest of the scarf pucker as you are pulling it out?

    Thanks for the photo – looks like a terrific idea!

    Ed, I am intrigued! How do you remove the monofilament thread after taking the work from the loom? (I also love weaving with tencel).

    Never mind – I found the list. I had never noticed it before. Thank you for sending me the link though!

    Thank you for the link to this list. I had not seen this page (Online Guild Season 3 Yarn List) before! Where is it in the categories on the website so I can find it again?

    Actually that brings up a question about the kits. I have been checking every so often to see what the yarn will be for the doubleweave episode coming next but have not seen anything about it – or any of the project yarns for episodes 7 and beyond. I’ve been thinking that I need to check my stash or order yarns for episode 7 but I don’t know what yarns will be used. If I am going to order the kits I’d like to order more than 1 at a time to save a little on postage to the US.

    Please let me know if I am not checking the right place on the website – so far I have been clicking on “Online Guild” then “Buy Season 3 kits”.

    I had exactly the same thing happen to me recently when weaving a Krokbragd rug. I treated it the same as a regular broken warp. Since I discovered it pretty quickly I just wove for a few inches without the broken selvedge threads and then when I had enough of the selvedge warp threads to pull forward I attached them with a pin and then kept on weaving. I wove in the ends when off the loom. Admittedly there was a noticeable wobble on the selvedge edge at this place in the rug when I took it off the loom, though. My teacher told me the reason it happened was because I was not advancing the temple as frequently as I should have (and yes I definitely needed a temple for this project) and I was not bubbling the weft enough. Once I started doing these 2 things as I should I did not have any more broken selvedge threads.

    I can’t seem to find the place to log out (in the new website format). I have just kept myself logged in since the new website was launched but I don’t really like to do this and would prefer to be able to log out. Is there somewhere to do this?

    Great – The pages printed out perfectly this time!

    I am excited to start the log cabin exercise but I think there is something wrong with the pdf. When I went to print it there were problems – last page is numbered 6 but only 4 printed out. The 2 middle pages were peculiar – printed horizontally and overlayed with what seems like another page on each of them!

    Thanks Ginette – I think I will give these yarns a try!
