I have just bought a serenity loom (from China) on ebay. I started to try doing a blanket using figure 8 cast on. That was the easy part but as I progressed I noticed that one side of the blanket is tighter than the other (tension) So I have now undone the whole thing to start again. After undoing it I noticed that the width between the inner circle of pegs and the outer ones vary in distance in places which makes one side of the blankets tension tighter than the other. I am just wondering if I should maybe do the blanket using the e wrap cast on method and knitting and not the figure 8. I hope this makes sense as I am pretty new to this loom. I do have all the round looms and the long looms but am still learning on them all. I have included a photo of my loom in the hopes that it will help.
