Tying a New Warp to an Old Warp

I prefer to tie on if at all possible.  Its quicker, you can make colour changes as you go and after you tie, you wind it onto the warp beam just if you were using a raddle.  If its a wool warp I usually lift half the shafts while winding on, to prevent little balls of fluff forming... which happens sometimes on 12-15 m warps.

The video shows me at the halfway stage.  I have all the dark ends tied on and sitting on top of the castle and am now working across the warp, tying on the light ends.

I prefer to tie on one end at a time, taking a thread from the cross in my hand as this preserves the thread order and I find it easier than cutting alol the way across and then trying to find the right end to tie to.
