Floor Loom is Here!

KessenichLoomI got my floor loom! It’s been installed in the living room for just over a week now. I bought it from another member of Ravelry, and it’s just beautiful. I have a warp ready to go onto it, and I’m dreaming of weaving my own fabric for SCA garb!

I admit, I was a bit intimidated when it actually arrived. It took me  a week to even open it up, while I worked on some inkle weaving instead. (Playing with pick up patterns from Anne Dixon’s new book.) I also purchased a copy of A Handweaver’s Pattern book by Marguerite Porter Davison, which is loaded with drafts for four shaft looms.

I’m still trying to decide whether to keep the table loom or sell it. The floor loom brings me up to four looms, and I really don’t have the space for that many, but I just know, if I sell the table loom I’m suddenly going to be overrun with ideas that simply have to have more than four shafts. (The table loom has eight.) Decisions, decisions!
