my warping board does not hold enough for the huckleberry waffle hand towel kit. i broke it down to two separate chains. when i was trying to warp the loom using both chains all hell broke loose and 'string theory' went wild. after many attempts i had to throw the entire knotted mess away and order more yarn from you. do i need to buy a standing warping board for greater capacity or is it possible to keep your sanity and use multiple chains?
Oh Susi, that is terrible. Do you still have the chains....you might be able to salvage them....especially is you have a place in the chain where nothing has been disturbed. If you have them please send me pictures and I might be able to help you use them. Yes...you can make multiple chains and warp with no problem. When you take the chain off the board you could slide it onto the lease sticks right away so nothing gets moved or tangled. When you do take the warp off the board make sure you don’t pull the end though the chain....just chain up to the cross and slide everything off...leaving the cross out of the chain. If you are leary about this you could have the lease sticks ready to string on the loom, get one on...tie up the lease sticks so everything stays tidy then make your net chain....then open the side of the lease sticks where the next one should go and slide it on etc. Etc. I hope this helps. :( Jane
