So Long, Erica. Farewell, Peacock.

No Comments

Believe it or not, every so often I wave goodbye to a loom. Recently, I sold my 25″ Erica rigid heddle loom to a new weaver who wanted to give it a try. The 12″ two harness Peacock, a teeny, vintage loom in need of new heddles and love, was also sent to a new home.

But even though I feel some relief and, yes, a bit smug, after sending these two out into the world (I’ve downsized! I’ve gained some space!), that hasn’t stopped me from welcoming a few more: one new, one old. (Hmmm… there goes that smugness.) I’ll blog about them at another time.

In the meantime, thanks for the memories, Erica. Glad to have known you, Peacock.

I've been busy–work, sick, etc., etc. So, maybe I still have the same projects on the same looms that were there a month ago… or maybe a month and a half? The geometic scarf is nearly finished, though, and so far I love it. I always forget how much slower it is to weave with a finer yarn. I also started a really cool project using my triloom, a hobo bag. Noreen Crone-Findlay has put up a great tutorial on putting together two 3' triangles to create a clever bag. I think an inkle strap would look nice:
