        I just wrapped a 300 thread wrap to put on my loom when i realized I left off 2 threads in the warp.  I haven’t beamed the warp yet and am wondering when I can add the threads.  I could leave the heddles they go on empty as I’m threading and tie the threads in then passing them thru the cross.  Would this work or is there a better way?

        Thanks,

        Diane

          That would work Diane, and you’ll be much happier than having two warp threads hanging off the back from the get-go!  Just watch that the tension is the same as you wind the warp on.

            i just did the same thing only I did not discover I was missing two warp threads until I was threading.  So I wound off two threads, hung them off the back beam with weight and threaded them as they were supposed to be threaded.  I did not want to try and find the two heddles after I had threaded all the other heddles so I just worked them in at the right time.
