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,


  1. Great going!!!! Getting the looms warped is the big job....the weaving is the fun part!

  2. You certainly have been busy! I have yet to get one of mine warped to begin to learn. Is there any way to email you with a question about the box loom that you wrote about in June of 2011? Thanks for the interesting posts. Heide
