We in Fiber Artisans have had sharing workshops to learn how we each warp a loom. One very neat trick learned was how Frank keeps his pattern and heddles straight and double checks for mistakes along the way. He counts out how many heddles he needs for a pattern, wraps all the others with his long sock. After weaving the pattern he double checks for any threading errors. If you do not use all your heddles or have some left over you know right then you have made an error. Easy to correct as you go along.
