I guess it was bound to happen.
I had dabbled in weaving before.
Built a simple frame loom.
Had The Man build me a peg loom.
So you could say I was loom-curious.
But I really wasn’t looking.
I hadn’t written anything about it here, but I had recently listed my Kromski Minstrel for sale on Ravelry and Craigslist.
The only inquiries I received were from people who wanted me to ship her, and I didn’t want to deal with all that.
So I thought I would just hang onto her for a while, even though she hasn’t been getting much use since my new lateral treadle model has come on the scene.
Then I got an email from someone local offering a straight trade.
For a loom.
Harrisville Designs 4 harness 22 inch floor loom.
Here she is in my sewing room.
Cool,eh? Already warped and everything. (I didn’t do that, she came with a warp on!)
Yeah, I started playing around tonight with some monkey sweater leftovers.
This is so neat. 🙂
