I’ve bought a loom ! It was so close to me, about 5 miles away and expert weavers that I asked said it was a good ‘un and I HAVE just had a big birthday and those of you who know me have probably been speculating for ages about how long it would be before I succumbed.
I’ve just been with No.2 son (my personal IT support) to dismantle and collect it. It took three and a half of us nearly two hours to dismantle it and load it into the car. The half person was called Oliver and wasn’t old enough to speak but still did a marvelous job of wielding screwdrivers and spanners and supervising the rest of us.
Now the beast is in the car. When I see IN what I mean is it practically IS my car. There was hardly space for G and me to drive the thing home. As well as the loom I now have a loom bench, shuttley bits and L O A D S of yarn. No warping thingy but anyway I have to get it all back together before I can mess around with all that.
If you never hear from me again you you wil lknow that my disappearance has something to do with my new acquisition.
