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?

And if you tie fishing swivels between the ends of each set of four threads, it's a lot easier to gt rid of excess twist.

Also, a decent rule of thumb is 10-20% longer warp than the desired length of the finished piece, to accommodate take-up and loom waste.

This is how I do all my patterns and warps. I'm not a fan of circular/speed-warping.
