Hi, I am a fairly new weaver.  I have completed at least 10 projects that have turned out so lovely, nice and straight.  My last 2 projects, scarfs, however have come out crooked???  I am using a wool/ acrylic blend yarn (25/75, Encore) on a Kromski harp ridgid heddle loom. They have all been separate warps.  I made 2 identical scarfs earlier that came out great.  On the second (crooked) scarf, with a recommendation from a fellow weaver,  I was especially careful with warping on, everything looked straight with consistent tension. I have no idea what is going on as I am weaving in the same way as usual. The loom looks straight too.  I am hesitent to try another project until I figure this out.  Any help would be appreciated.

When you're weaving these scarfs do they look straight on the loom or does it appear crooked only when removed/finished?
