Well, I haven’t yet managed to achieve a cat-free sink long enough to make use of it. This is mainly because S was away over the weekend, so there was nobody to distract the fascinated felines. On the plus side, though, he returned with a new-to-me loom, courtesy of Pat – thanks, Pat! – which is totally worth four days of tripping over a kitten every time I turned round.
But what kind of loom, I hear you cry? It’s a Louet Magic Dobby: 24 shafts, 40 cm weaving width, mechanical dobby.
And it is sitting up against the breast beam of the Delta, because I haven’t quite got a space cleared for it yet….
This officially takes my loom count to double figures, which is a little frightening. I am actually selling one 8-shaft table loom, so that will move out – though not immediately – and there’s a 4-shaft one that I would like to find a new home for as well. Just at the moment, though, I am in possession of 10 looms. (Not counting backstrap, rigid heddle or frame looms, obviously.)
I’m not allowed to warp this one until all the others are done. I have a new cohort of beginner weavers coming in this weekend, and I’ve got those looms just about ready. But the new warp for the Megado,…
…which is quite a bit darker than the top picture suggests, is only beamed and not yet threaded.
