Hello! I'm sorry to be posting again. I've been looking around, and haven't been able to find a general way to figure out how much yarn I will need. I'm completely new to weaving, and am slowly becoming more comfortable with the terms, but still am not sure about everything. My sister and good friend both weave, and could probably tell me how they calculate for their warps and wefts, but they are used to floor looms and I didn't know if it would be different for a backstrap loom. I guess to go along with that, how far apart do my warping pegs need to be? Is that the length of the desired piece (plus finishing and extras)?
I have plenty of extra yarn I can play with for now, but I would like to know what to be looking for (as far as yardage goes) when I go to buy things purposely for a project.
Anyway, just thought I'd ask. And this might be somewhere else on this group, I just couldn't find it. At least not in a general sense. So just let me know if I missed it! :)
These might be elementary questions, I'm just trying to figure out how it all goes together and what effects what.
Thanks for being so helpful!
