warp lashed on front rod Before I lashed on I cut off the excess ends beyond the knots.  This makes the process go a little more easily.

However, things did not proceed smoothly.

As I was lashing on, I discovered that some of the groups still had a loose end or two.  In fine silk it is impossible for me to untie the overhand knot.  I simply retied the knot and then cut off the excess length.

I had to do this several times.  That is why, in the picture, some of the ends are much shorter than the others.
