I was a very contented individual knitting and spinning. But during the course of visiting the blogs of other knitters and spinners, I found that there are quite a few who also weave. I have admired their projects, scarves, towels, blankets but thought I don’t have the time or space at this stage in my life to take up weaving. The weavers in my guild were also gently shoving pushing me to give it a try. So last year at the guild’s garage sale I saw and bought a rigid heddle loom for $20. My thinking was, its small and maybe I could give it a try and see if I like it. But it wasn’t until recently that I warped it and started weaving.
While recouping from some surgery, I got a call from a friend who said that she was had decided to leave the state. She mention that one of the things that she wasn’t going to be taking with her was a loom and if there was anybody I knew who would be interested. So I very happy to report that I have something new in my living room, thank you Mada.
I am very excited.
The loom needs cleaning but I think from first inspection it looks to be in very good shape.
Yesterday as I was knitting (Fountain Pen Shawl) in my living room, I heard the heddles of the loom start to rattle and as they got louder I could then feel the earthquake. The quake gave us a good shake, it was 5.4 and about 60 miles away. We had a few good size aftershocks since.
I am indeed very happy with my new loom/earthquake detector.
