Are we there yet?

Yes, we are!

It took us a couple of weeks of snatched hours and half-hours, but the Toika Eeva is now assembled. On Thursday I put on a test warp, but other than as ‘proof of concept’ have hardly had time to weave it.

As I needed S to help with all the heavy lifting, we mainly worked in the evenings. The light in the room is legendarily bad at night (something we have had on our list to sort out for the last twenty years, so don’t hold your breath), my WIP photos are unintelligible. However, I can clearly demonstrate our progress:


Eeva occupies the spot vacated by the Delta (plus quite a bit) so I still have a loom-with-a-view, but also a loom-with-cables, which is an entirely new experience for me. I’m re-learning my relationship to Fiberworks, as well as to the loom. I’ll let you know how it goes…
