|Still weaving after all these years . . .|
While America's Got Talent raged on with public auditions, I tossed the shuttle, finding that easy rhythm again of working warp and weft. Saori cares not one fig for the perfectly woven item. In fact, the practice encourages bulges and bumps and texture and less-than-even selvages. It is the action of weaving that matters. I feel a connection with Spider Woman and Lachesis of the Fates as the shuttle flies and the reed beats against the weave. Once the loom is threaded and if the pattern is simple enough, a lot of weaving can get done in a short amount of time. About a foot and a half was woven by the time AGT ended the first half of the show at 10:00pm ~ the other half was spent spinning.

|And at 10:00pm, then it was on to spinning.|
