During winding I keep the threads as close to the base of the pegs as possible.
This warp I'm using 8 yarn packages to make 4 stripes. Each spool/cone sits below a reed and each yarn gets threaded through the reed to prevent the packages from tipping over. The yarn feeds straight up from the tube/cone through the reed.
I just let the unused threads dangle off the last peg at the bottom. It looks a bit messy but the reed keeps the threads in their order.
Here is the first half of the warp tied off ready to remove from the warping board. I tie off the four 'arms' of the cross rather than the waist. I found that if I tied the waist of the X the threads got compressed together and were difficult to sort out for rough sleying. (Or for threading when dressing the loom front to back.)
And here is the first warp chain in the plastic bin. I let the end with the cross dangle out over the side of the bin so it's easy to find. On my Leclerc warping board I can wind up to 15" in warp (depending on the yarn). This warp is about 24 inches so I wind two chains about 12" each.
Tomorrow I'll wind the second half of the warp and it will be all ready for when I get home.
