I’ve got three of my looms warped and in progress…for longer than I care to remember. I love having the wire racks in my workroom and being able to see what is on the shelves, but on the negative side there is the dust factor.
I’m planning a cover for the floor inkle loom and I might as well go ahead and make some covers for the smaller inkle looms as well.
I’ll trim down the pillow cases a bit on for the two smallest looms and maybe add drawstrings to keep them all closed. For now this will do.
It occurred to me that if I made one more change in the room by putting the recliner in the corner I would be able to sit with my feet on the floor and work at the big inkle loom. It’s also a good spot for a chair nap away from the living room and the TV.
The floor inkle loom will hold almost 16 yards of warp and I have approximately 6 yards left to weave until I’m finished.
Time for lunch! Brad is off to pick up our pizza at Pizza Hut in town. I am getting hungry just thinking about it…
I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl.
I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles.
In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s.
I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
