My goals of late

I am finally in a place where I have nowhere to go and now I can get some things done. My goal is to have every loom with a warp on it. Great plan right?

I have some Leclerc sectional rakes that I wasn't using so I asked my husband to cut them down to fit the Glimakra Ideal. I am going to like this a lot. This will speed up the warping process for sure. I am now winding a placemat warp on it. I didn't remember to take a picture of it.

On the Leclerc Meco I have a shawl warp waiting to go on. This will be white on white. The warp has a nice sheen to it. I think this is going to look really nice. It looks much better in person.

On the Leclerc Minerva I am going to weave another shawl. This warp is a bit heavier but really nice. The wound warp is sitting on the bench.

I even warped up the Cricket loom so I can weave in the evenings at home. This scarf is 100% alpaca. This is very soft.

When I brought the loom home to warp it I realized I had forgotten the warping peg. Not wanting to go back to the studio I had to improvise. This is what I came up with. It worked very well!

On the warping rack behind the Gilmore loom is a warp waiting to be wound on for rugs. Now with all this free time I have I can loom hop and get the warps on. I can't wait to stand see every loom with a warp on it. That will be so satisfying! I will be sure to get pictures.

Until next time,
