        <p style=”text-align: left;”>My brain has left the building. I blame social distancing.</p>
        <p style=”text-align: left;”>While warping the stripe sample #5 season 2, I somehow convinced myself to wind 54 sets of 4 threads for the final striping sequence.</p>
        I now have an extra 108 ends. I realized this AFTER I chained it.

        Any advice on how best to remove and hopefully salvage all that extra yardage?

        I hope everyone is safe.

          I haven’t had this experience before but if your warp beam is wide enough could you just wind it on with the correct number of ends. Then thread the correct number of ends through the shafts and them to your cloth beam. Then before   you remove the lease sticks, tie threads through the cross of the extra threads so you don’t lose it, and as you weave leave these ends loose at the back beam and gradually chain the extra warp so you can perhaps use it again.
          good luck

            Hi Mary,

            thank you and I hope you are never as witless.

            I am annoyed with myself. I can recall counting out the group of threads but kept going. Oh well.

            I have just enough beam.  I may try that.  I am trying to figure out how not to cut the ends on them.  if that makes any sense.
