Thank you to everyone who has left a comment or sent me a message since I posted about Phoebus. Your kind words are very much appreciated. We spent our New Year’s Eve quietly at home with Polly in front of the fire, but today we have been trying to Get Stuff Done.
I have been down to the studio to do some sampling and, of course, to take pictures for Loomsday. Herewith the State of the Looms on New Year’s Day 2015.
The Megado is as I left it after cutting off the Brighton honeycomb just before Christmas. I did finish the scarf and it was given to my brother Jon for Christmas. As this post is about the looms rather than the things woven upon them, you’ll need to click here to see a picture of the finished scarf.
The Delta is the loom I am sampling on. More heddles unused than in use at the moment.
The four Ashfords, which I use for teaching, are all ready for the next Taster Day in a couple of weeks’ time.
These are the older two…
…while the newer pair are here.
The Varpapuu really needs some TLC in 2015, not least to replace the cords, which are all pretty grotty.
The W30 is resting atop the cupboards ahead of a trip to France in May…
…while my original 4-shaft loom is currently folded up in semi-darkness. I am thinking of selling it, but can’t quite make up my mind.
I hope to keep most of these looms fairly busy in 2015. I certainly have enough plans…
