additional letters and an opinion from the old pro
I is for insousciant, imperfect, and impetuous
F is for f0rnication. Yayyy!
O is for occluded opening and obnoxious good cheer. (It took DH a minute to get this in focus. My thighs were trembling with strain. I used to be able to chimney right up something this easy. But how often does a women my age get the opportunity to chimney up small openings?)
Ris for relaxed rest and recreation.
As for the opinion of the old pro - Kristin asked, several posts ago, what I thought about getting a rigid-heddle loom for her daughter. I think it's great, as long as you don't figure on this being the only loom she will ever own. Rigid heddle is easy and quick to warp and use. It's limited in width and versatility, but for starters, it's great. Remember to avoid fuzzy yarn or yarn with a soft twist for the warp, because it will get a lot of abrasion during the weaving process. And tell her to be patient. You are teaching muscles how to do things. Muscles learn slowly, but they never forget. That's why you can ride a bike decades after the last time. Your muscles remember the incredibly complex dance of momentum and balance without having to apply to your brain for help. In time, she will have perfect edges and a quick, steady rhythm. It helps to sing while you weave. Good, four/four folk tunes with lots of verses.
