What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose a solid color warp yarn. I used a "twist" colored yarn and it really limited what I could do with color. It's much better, I think, to use the twist yarn as weft. Make sure that your warp is tensioned properly, and if it's not, take the time to redo it. When she says that it's more important to have the warp tension even than tight, she's not kidding. You can always tighten your warp with the pawls, but you're never going to get it straight. And it will affect your edging! When you're weaving, take a moment to gently pull your edge so that there's not a "nub." I have seen a lot of class pictures with nubby edges, and it's super easy to fix if you straighten it as you go!
