Just putting this here for the moment in case you are coming from the old site and wondering where you can view the information on kits, yarn list for the seasons and release schedule.

Hi Ginette, I don't know where to look to find this answer, so I will just put it here, and hope you can help me.
I have a question about skipped threads on the underside of my weaving. I have just finished Granny Pam's boucle kit (which I loved doing, despite having to ultimately replace the brake mechanism on my old Mighty Wolf after redoing the warping and winding 3 times...) My towels are off and hemmed, but I notice a skipping on the underside that puzzles me. I have had to be very mindful when throwing my shuttle as my right side occasionally skipped in the same place - hence - I was not throwing consistently. I have become a fabulous UNWEAVER as I hate to see those mistakes when I can find and fix them before I go too far. Now, how the heck did I make these on the reverse side? They are only visible on the underneath as they were never visible until I removed the completed warp. These goofs are about 3 - 5 inches in length, and appear to take place over 2-3 picks. I only have a few of these in all my towels, but it still bugs me, and I hope to correct whatever it is I am doing wrong :)! Your thoughts and suggestions please... - Jan
It sounds like there were some looser threads on the bottom when you had your shed open and your shuttle caught them. How was your tension when you were weaving? One thought, I know that having my ‘palms up’ like Jane shows when throwing the shuttle helped me to keep the shuttle floating on top of all those bottom threads, otherwise, holding it on top tends to send it downwards or that's what I have found in the past. By the way, have you repaired these floats off the loom?
Thank you for your prompt reply! No, have not. repaired the. floats...how do make the repairs once removed from the loom? I wish there was a way to attach a photo...
You can attach a photo Jan! Check how to right here: https://help.schoolofweaving.tv/article/100-uploading-images
You can needle weave mistakes on and off the loom. Thread a needle with some of your weft thread colour. Start 1 to 2 inches away from where the mistake starts, and follow the pattern along (as you were doing the Granny Pam Boucle Towels, I'm thinking you followed the Plain Weave, so one over, one under...). Continue needle weaving the weft past the mistake for another 1 to 2 inches. Then wash your towel and after, you can cut out the weft thread that is the mistake right at the mistake part. Jane has a video on the JST YouTube channel that is similar but it's for the warp, not the weft and on the loom. You can follow her instructions the same off the loom and just follow the weft thread. The video is called Egads, I have a Know in the Warp.
