Weaving and thinking

The warp is tied on to the apron rod, and while doing that simple task, the brain was working, thinking about a couple of experimental pieces I want to try. And since I have a Schacht Baby Wolf sitting in my studio that I have never used, why not warp it up. It's a used loom and came with lots of bells and whistles, like a raddle that I don't know how to use. So, what else does one do? Google it of course! Below is a You Tube video from Webs with very clear instructions. Maybe even I could do this!

Something else I was thinking about while tying on--how do other weavers tie on to the front apron bar using a horizontal loom? I've tried lots of different methods--well, not really, just two. I used the Nyquist method and the usual where you take the group, split it, and tie. This method means I have to tape my fingers to prevent blisters. I really would like to know what works for you. Oh, and by the way, I am patting myself on the back for figuring out how to embed the above video. It's not as simple as in Blogger. Unfortunately, I can't figure out what the heck I did to the text in this post!
