This is the start of the weaving. Inkle weaving is a "warp faced weave" meaning that the warp threads are what shows when the weaving is done, though you can see the "bumps" where the weft threads are inside the warp threads and with the difference in colors here, if you look closely you can see bits of the weft inside the warp.
I found this yarn hard to work with as it has a stretchiness to it. It is much better to work with yarn/cord/threads that don't have much if any stretch, and you will have a better end product as well.
Inkle weaving is basically a simple process and with a little bit of practice you can get quite good at it and make some nice projects.
