I learned today you can get a lot more exercise while weaving if you warp your 10-dent rigid heddle reed with a yarn that’s too fat for it. It’s hard to open the sheds and hard to slide the reed to beat the picks. My legs are getting a workout, too — I have to hold the loom stand down with my feet when I lift the reed.

It’s slow going but turning out OK. This color combination is from Mr. MmmYarn’s stash, which still has a ways to go before I work through it.
