looked at some looms online and figured, it can't be that hard. so i started. i made a measurement or two then said screw it, i'll just eyeball it. I wanted to put rollers on the ends, but then again i said screw it. keep it simple for a first go. figure i can give this one away as a "heartfelt" christmas present. next one will probably come out better.

Great job! I know the sub doesn't have much activity but /v/Weaving would like this too. It may inspire people to get into the craft!

Right there with you buddy. I hate looms too. No story, no particular reason. Just hate 'em.

Had to check the you tubes, I'm still not sure how the frame works.

it's a fairly primitive technology, have you tried understanding? sure they can get petty complicated but the principle is:

you got these up and down strings called warps. from there you over under with a string called the weft. repeat for a while and you've got a towel. you can add a heddle which will raise alternate rows of strings making the ol' over under easier. thats pretty much what i've done. you can go a lot deeper into the rabbit hole, though.
