Kade - That is really helpful info. I have never weaved anything before and kind of 'ended up' with this loom (very gratefully!). So I have just been trying to bumble my way through getting it set up on my own.
I guess I was just being a bit silly, thinking that I had to put the texsolv pegs EXACTLY where I saw them in the picture. I think that i will be able to do it now and just leave a bit dangling.
