      Just finished reading all the posts and am preparing to go to my new arming board to get started. Can’t wait!  Just wanted to say that I’m happy to see you, Kimmi, currently working on this too. How is it going?  Have you finished your samples?

        This episode answered so many questions I’ve had but didn’t know how to ask. Thank you!  Now another question.  I have only one reed with the mighty wolf I inherited. It’s 6 epi. The reeds are so expensive. I want to invest wisely. What size should I buy so that I can best follow along with the classes?

          I’m so excited!  I binge watched Season 1 by the fire over the past two weeks.  It motivated me to clean my looms and reorganize my equipment and yarns that have been sadly ignored since our move two years ago.  I finally understand why I should have a raddle in my life and I feel I have a much better understanding of the basics, even after eight years of weaving on weekends (mostly on a rigid heddle).

          Now, I’m hoping the delivery person, bearing 8/2 yarn from JST, can make it up our icy hill on our little farm in Kentucky so I can get started on this first sample. The colors are perfect and I absolutely can’t wait!

          I can’t thank you enough, Jane and team, for reinvigorating my love of weaving!

            Glenda, I was wondering the same thing. I have a 36” Wolf (jack loom) Those Metal heddles are heavy and LOUD!  I’ve been so impressed with the neat, quiet texsolv heddles. I’d love to know what my options are.

              Very cool!  I was fascinated by the rapid counting in earlier videos but couldn’t figure it out. Now I can do it too. Part of the joy of weaving for me is feeling my body get more practiced so movements and tasks are smooth and natural. I can’t wait for this one to become second nature like it obviously is for Charlotte and Jane.

                Kimberly, thanks for your response. I hope to buy a mill someday for longer warps. It sounds like you’re enjoying yours.  I’m surprised to hear your board is faster than your mill. I do love the process on the warping board.

                  Kimberly, when I’m winding warps on my warping board, I always make chains before I need to because I’m afraid I’ll loose it off the pegs like Jane described in the video. I was thinking the same thing—how nice to just keep going!  Do you only use your warping mill or are there still times when you use a warping board?

                    When is it best to use a warping mill versus a warping board?  The mill looks so much more comfortable for my complaining shoulders!
