Beam once, thread many

Here's something I'd heard of, but had never tried before.  If you have multiple projects which use the same number of warp ends, but different threadings, you can re-thread between projects, and save the beaming step on the subsequent projects.  I got to the end of this project...

...opened one tabby shed...

...then placed a lease stick in this shed behind the castle.

Next, open the other tabby shed and place a second lease stick.

Tie or secure the lease sticks however you normally do for threading.

Then just cut off the first project...

...and unthread it by pulling the warp out to the back, and you're all ready to thread the next one!
