A Loom, a loom.....!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

I am absolutely delighted to have a LOOM in our home again!

It is only a small loom; a two harness table loom, - one that rests in a corner until it is time to come out and create lovely objects.

A far cry from the eight harness glimakra counter-balance with whom I had this wonderful relationship until the stiffness in my knees made it impossible for me to re-tie her treadles to produce intricate designs.

Nevertheless, I am already planning a two harness warp and a tabby weft with maybe a Brooks Lace border, - a scarf, woven with the lovely skeins of mohair and soft sheep's wool that I bought from Doe G. today.  It was Doe who lent me the little table loom, too, when I went to visit her this morning.

Charles was off to the first singing session of the fall season

Another beautiful Fall day......

Isn't this the best time of year? I'd save the loom for the winter months if I were you and enjoy what's left of the good weather. It'll be winter soon enough.

Singing and weaving your way into the Autumn - what could be better Hildred? We might not be able to hear Charles singing but I hope we shall be treated to a photograph of anything you weave.

Happy day! Can't wait to see your project, Hildred! Enjoy your fine weather.

How lovely for you! I know you'll have fun and create some beautiful things. Was Charles surprised to see the new loom when he got home from practice?

Early Fall looks lovely there!
