The Engines Canna' Take Much More of This
Here's the back of the warped loom. Keeping all thirty warp threads sorted out was definitely a challenge, but it would have been worse if I'd used the clothespins! The cardboard roller works pretty well and is easily secured with binder clips.
I wouldn't want to do anything longer, though. (This warp's about seventy-two inches.)
SF/fantasy writer. English professor. Episcopalian. Licensed lay preacher. Hospital volunteer offering spiritual care in the ER. Spinner, weaver, knitter.
And a few other things, less easily labeled. The title of this blog is a phrase John Clute used to describe the plots of my first two novels. It both amused and annoyed me, and I finally decided to reclaim it as a badge of honor. Would you prefer rickety contrivances of doing bad?
