“I needed a weaving loom that was long enough to weave a scarf on. I had never whipped up a loom and only weaved on those little student frame looms in the past. I saw my Ingo table and realized that it would work for an impromptu loom. The wooden spoon (hanging from some scrap yarn loops attached to the top) is the heddle that moves one set of the warp up. The Chopstick with the red ends has loops of yarn around the other set of warp strings.”
