Life is rather hectic at the moment with bathroom/toilet/utility refurbishment work being done. More like cleaning the dust at the end of the day and not much energy for weaving or anything else just now.
But I have started to weave up the workshop warp from November. There were some samples that I was unable to do at the time, so I have made the ones that I skipped over.
The top two are tricot, I'm quite taken with these. Warp is almost finished now.

Next week hoping to see Louet here to sort out my Magic Dobby for once and for all

Another week of building work. After that I'm hoping to start making space for my Megado. I need to clear the study, to make it into a weaving room again. Lots of sorting to be done first though.

Happy weekend all.

not much blogged in the last months of 2014.
I blame Facebook for that....
hope to post more regularly again here
wishing you all a happy creative weaving year in 2015

new years day, so posting with Meg's day in the life of looms:
(you can see more blogs links about loomsday through Meg's link above)
warp on Jane has been re-tied, still the warp from workshop All Tied Up by Jette Vandermeiden, will play a bit more with this straight threading
Magic Dobby loom, the 1st double weave scarf from this warp is finished at last and needs to be cut from the loom. still thinking about how to finish the scarf. there is enough warp left to make 2 to 3 more scarves
last few blocks the interface was playing up again, missing out lifting shafts. I thought that problem had been solved when the printing plate was renewed several months ago. will get in touch with Louet next week
Minerva is standing idle at the moment, thinking hard about selling her
completely snowed under is my Thumm loom, also thinking about selling this
HURRAY, a wish has come true :-)
My new to me 32 shaft Megado :-) is waiting to be assembled
looking forward to weaving projects on her, but first will have to clear a space to be able to fit her in.
very excited and looking forward to a new weaving year
