      So this works with two picks but not something with more picks, say 4, because the tucked tail and untucked end are right next to each other offering more security to that untucked tail because of the “bulk” right there?

        Thank you-it appears I should be able to raise my beater-that’s what I was thinking I needed to do-I will work on that.  I will also check my cords.

          I’m really struggling with making a square -I just want it to be a different number of weft threads! Also have some wavy thing going on so I’m working on my technique to see if that fixes it.  I just watched the final piece of the last episode (Thank You to the person who mentioned you can watch them using Amazon firetv!) where Jane was fixing her issues-so helpful to see that!

            I have a Leclerc Nilus-and I’m wondering if something isn’t quite right after watching this episode.  Is it “normal” for my warp threads on the bottom of the shed to separate like this?

              Now I really feel stupid.  For some reason I didn’t think the free shipping applied to the US, but it does.  So I got everything on the list that was in stock.  I’ll just have to make Sue with the few I’m missing. Thank you for your patience.

                Absolutely-I understand-thank you.  I wish the shipping wasn’t such a difference.  Actually, I wish I was closer so I could come look and buy in person! I’ll look at the order again and see if I can make it work.

                  I would love to start each of the samples with the yarns to match the project on the videos.  And then work on the remainder of the warp experimenting with other yarns and colors of weft.  I understand the point of being creative and experimental, but I don’t have the confidence yet to start entirely randomly.  What I’m finding is that my “local” yarn shop (actually the next state over) carries Brassard cotton but the names don’t necessarily match.  For those of us in the states, would it be possible to get Brassard’s color numbers for the yarns used in the samples?

                  Thank you for considering.

                    Hello.  I’m not finding Dark Purple.  Have I just missed it?  Or is the “Purple” actually the Dark Purple and the “Lilac” the Light Purple?

                    Thank you.
