      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:
