Sorry to hear that you are having a problem with your first project, Jennie.😔 Before you wound your warp - did you watch Season 1? It's so important to get your cross secured and slipped onto your lease sticks. That done, you spread out your warp using your raddle, to get it evenly spread over the width you have planned on the loom. Once that is done, lash your warp rod and beam to keep the tension even on your warp as you wind. Every step in the process is important for you to have a happy and rewarding result as you sit at your loom. Unless you have your warp on your loom in the order that you warped it - it will be impossible to have a happy warp for you to weave. Jane has designed the School of Weaving for new weavers (and old ones needing a refresher ;-) so that they can learn to weave step by step building on each step that they have mastered.
