How I Fix a Broken Warp Thread
I take one of my handy dandy film cans left over from my kumihimo days, add coins to equal about 80 g., wrap a warp end around can, anchor with slip knot.
I pull one half of the broken end towards the woven part (below) and the other half towards the warp beam (above). Then I thread the film can thread through the now empty heddle and dent, and I lash it to my (can't live without) T-pin.
Then I just weave.
And the film can just hangs there.
Once I complete the weaving, I will needle weave the warp end so the two ends overlap for 2-3". I'll try to remember to take a picture of it before and after washing.
