He was only able to go on wearing the boots because he'd been able to weave long grass into a rough twine. With it he'd bound what remained of them to his feet.
Так что из одежды у него остались только сапоги, да и лишь потому, что он сумел сплести из длинных травинок какое‑то подобие веревки и привязал их к своим ногам.

After some twenty paces he stopped, reaching down, and stroked the air in a vertical line by his feet. Then he looped the twine around the invisible post and walked on.

And when she clasped him with her supple curving arms, he half expected to see her, so slight and slender she was, twine herself around him.

The knobs of the kitchen dresser sported tassels like a stripper in a bawd house, the kettle handle knitted over in snake-ribs, the easy chairs wore archipelagoes of thread and twine flung over the reefs of arms and backs.
Ручки кухонных шкафов дразнили кисточками, как стриптизерши в баре, ручку чайника оплетала причудливая змейка, а стулья утопали в ажурном плетении, полностью покрывавшем спинки и подлокотники.
