I’m watching the first video for this and have a question. Apologies if it is addressed further on, but I wanted to ask before I forgot.
Is there a reason the supplementary warp threads are being thread through two adjacent heddles (3/3 or 4/4) rather than just being held together and treated as one end? I’m assuming it is a potential tensioning issue (which only occurred to me as I was typing).0
It such an interesting optical illusion that the light ‘lines’ look fatter than their corresponding dark ones. I guess it is true what they say – dark colors are slimming! 😉0
Is there a reason that Jane is putting so many ends into each hem stitch? Wouldn’t having fewer ends per “bundle” secure it more? Or is this one of those personal preference things?0
Another re-subscription question. I joined in August, 2018 and the renewal date is showing as August 2019, but it is also showing as “cancellation pending regarding the new year and reminding me I need to resubscribe for 2019.
Are subs based on calendar date, or annual from the date you join?0
Great ideas! I had previously put all the chains under one stack of weights, and they were definitely slipping at different rates. It sounds like wrapping them *around* the stack and weighing it down a second time will prevent slippage. You guys are awesome!0
Looks like we may be the only ones with the issue, Nina!
I’ve figured out something of a solution – or at least something that helps, but it is sort of tedious and I’m not sure I’d want to do it with a super long warp. I wound on my warp with two chains and wasn’t happy with the evenness. So I unwound the warp (eep!), keeping the lease sticks in and attached to the back apron. I chained the warp into a single chain and then rewound it on. The tension was much, much better and very even. I ended up losing a few inches off the warp because I had to even out the ends after winding on because I had already cut them from the first time. But I’m thinking if I hadn’t done that, it might have been pretty even to begin with?0
This chart from Ravelry gives a very general idea of wpi vs gauge:0
Yes, I think you’re right. Maybe the middle tone of the three ends? It doesn’t look like a different color all together, but it is hard to tell.0
What is the weft for the teal towel at about 12 minutes? I mean, obviously the bright stripes are done as solid weft for that part, but does the rest of the weft alternate between the three warp colors that are warped with three ends held together?0
I’m late to joining the guild, but loving it as I’m catching up. A quick question on this project – will one cone of the white be enough for a 6 yard warp and to weave all the samples Jane shows?0
