So, with four looms….

Status

So, with four looms….I should be four times as productive, or four times as happy.  Something like that? I think I am on the way to being four times as happy, and will be when I get the right projects going on the right looms. Things are a bit muddled right now, with quick projects on slow looms, and vice versa.

I might just finish Alisoun’s hair ribbons, a quick project, on the Glimakra band loom, and then put something deliciously complex on the loom, maybe a wide band with more than 20 pattern threads, surrounded by a pair of wide and interesting borders.

My floor loom will probably take a rest after the Midnight Snowflake scarf.  I hope to be moving to a new home and studio space in the next five months. I don’t want to repeat the hasty cutting of work-in-progress that was symbolic of my journey here. I can be content with two slow projects and a quick one on the smaller and more portable looms.

I still marvel every day at the convergence of circumstances that brought me home and continue to enrich my life.

Another one slipped in

I must have left the door open because another loom has arrived to keep me company.

This is a medieval style tape loom from Jonathan Seidel

Yes, I already have a loom that makes bands, but it makes sense to have another, so that I could have both quick and more thoughtful projects going at once. That seems to be a good philosophy for the weaving studio as a whole. Hold thT thought…
