The cardboard frame folds. I did not find this out willingly. A family member borrowed my work space. There is a long convoluted story that ends with my project being draped over a couch without my knowledge or agreement. So. The cardboard frame is now folded in half. However, it does remain larger than travel size friendly, so those looking for a scurryfunge travel solution must continue to look elsewhere.
The string, miraculously, is still in place. Some of the T-shirt warp (the horizontal bits that I move through the string weft) is looser than what my amateur eye deems appropriate. I do not yet have it in me to unfold the project to check completely.
