here's something new (to me). i'm in the middle, almost exactly the middle, of threading my heddles for some dishtowels. I have just come across a thread pair which seems to have broken. i have one abnormally long end, and there's no sign of the other side of that end. Presumably it's wound somewhere onto my warp beam. so my question is how best to handle this. I could easily exclude this thread from the threading, and perhaps when that thread comes out of the warp, i can just remove the whole thing. It seems to me it will just make my warp 2 threads narrower. no big deal for a towel. Does anyone see any problem with "orphaning" this thread pair like this, or is there a better way to handle this situation? It seems kinda needlessly complex to add a repair thread right from the get-go, but maybe i'm wrong. this is only my second warp ever. any suggestions are appreciated. thanks.
Fix it right away or you will see it later. I think you can just add a new one, weight it off the back.
