Tablet Weaving on an Inkle Loom

Greetings everyone!

I got an inkle loom for my Birthday, since I've been told that one can do tablet weaving on an inkle loom. But at the moment, I'm trying to figure out how to thread it (warp it?) and how exactly it would work.

I've found a couple of videos on YouTube, but they were just still-pictures and I didn't really understand it very well. I also tried looking elsewhere online, but again, just still pictures with instructions...something in my head isn't clicking when I read the instructions or look at the pictures.

Would anyone know of a place where I might find an actual video on how to thread my inkle loom for tablet weaving?

Thanks!

I always do TW on an inkle loom. Wonderfully portable and holds the tension.

There is a basic circular warping system where you run thread thru all four holes (from 4 different balls) and go around in a circle dropping off one card each pass. Here is a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cheht5FC0Fs

Good luck!

That was actually the video I had found, where I couldn't really make heads or tails out of how they were doing it. I don't know...sometimes I just have problems figuring out how something is done when I have to read about it and look at still pictures - I mostly seem to understand it better whenever I see an actual video of it, or if someone shows how it's done. I'm just weird like that :)
