Stocking up

Lots of laser cut circle looms sorted today.  

  They look a bit like Poker chips – game anyone?

 …..perhaps we’d better not  ūüôā

I’ll start choosing colourful yarn combinations from the shelves and then get to making up weaving kits instead ūüôā


Welcoming a New Loom

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been ‘breaking in’ my new loom.¬†

So far, it’s been quite a slow progress with plenty of ‘scratching of head’ moments.¬†

My father- in-law kindly helped me put it together on a hot sunny day.

 I worked on linking it to my laptop, then set up some warp threads and finally got to weave a little cloth. 

There have been plenty of teething problems along the way but it is a very lovely loom and I feel like we will become very good friends. 

P.S. For anyone interested in looms; this is a narrow width 24 shaft compu-dobby made by AVL.  The computer bit assists me with longer, complex weave sequences, but everything else about it still involves hand weaving.
