My Kind of Therapy

I’m not sure what to name her? She’s lovely isn’t she? She is an 18 inch, 8 shaft table loom from the Mountain Loom Company. They are no longer made. This girl came from a fellow Ravelry member who was generous enough to entrust her to my care.

She also comes with a pique double beam warp frame. You know, in case we want to get all fancy. I doubt we’ll do much of that right away.

She just arrived today. I’m letting her catch her breath, but I already have Cottolin warp measured and ready to make towels.

How exciting! But you were pretty much talking Greek to me, lol!

One day I would love to learn the art of weaving and spinning my own yarn.

Good score ............ glad things are looking up today. See you really don't want to move, just think of taking your looms apart and trying to put them back together again. Can't wait to see your towels.

That looks nifty! I can't wait to see what you come up with, I'm sure it'll be fantastic.

Looks terrific! I have a tabletop loom with the markings, Tools of the Trade, Fairhaven, Vermont sitting here staring at me. Wish you were closer so I could take some lessons! I'll just have to jump in and give it a go...it's dressing the loom that overwhelms me. Looking forward to seeing your creations.

I say, Lucky You. I know nothing about weaving, but it looks so interesting. I will be waiting to see your first project.
