It’s finally happened. The loom stork has visited and I haz a new loom!!
Not just a new loom, but a baby loom (half the size of my first loom). It’s unbelievably adorable, like a puppy or a baby lizard. Though I didn’t get it because it’s cute… I got it because it’s practical. My other loom is very portable, but large enough to be awkward in many situations. This little guy is super-duper portable.
Also, my projects often don’t utilise the width of my bigger loom. So, the baby will mean I can do my ordinary scarfs there, while leaving the bigger loom free for double weave and other fun stuff! Well, that’s the theory.
Who is the baby? Well, he’s another rigid heddle loom that folds up into a neat carry bag; known as the Ashford’s Knitters’ Loom. He’s just smaller (30cm/12″) than my other one (70cm/28″).
As someone once said to me, looms are herd animals. My herd has begun to grow! (Baby loom photos will follow…)
