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).
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?
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!
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?
This chart from Ravelry gives a very general idea of wpi vs gauge:
