A Little Help Here

Having an assistant to help warp a loom is a wonderful thing. Unless that assistant happens to be a cat.

"Oh, please. You don't realize how much I'm helping," said Ethel.

"You missed the third thread in shaft five."

"Because you ripped it out with your bare paws," I said sarcastically. 

"I don't think we'll ever get this done if all you want to do is argue about technicalities."

(Some of you will notice I am working on a new-to-me 8-shaft cherry Norwood loom. That means my 4-shaft, 10-treadle Baby Wolf is for sale. Contact me if you are interested.)

That is so funny! And that is why my looms are in a room with a closed door. Pete would love to "help" me like Betsy is helping you.

But she is so cute how can you resist her help.

Cats are so helpful, such a funny story,
Your new loom sounds like a fun new challenge. Your little sweater in the previous story is just adorable, best wishes on your new loom.

Hi, Christine. I thought of you just this morning and wondered what you had been up to. As you know, I have experience in helping you warp a loom. Call if you need me.

Everyone needs a good helper even if they have a little attitude. Saw a loom in Berea--I think this is above my skill level
