Since I joined the walker house group, I have aquired a new crafting device. The organization has 4 looms and were donated another by a local hospital. I mentioned I was interested they offered me a loom. Of course I took it, and went and picked it up on monday afternoon.

The loom is a 4 heddle leclerc canadian brand, and portable. The loom came with a beautiful bench, and a yarn winder, and bag of goodies.

I spent an hour on monday night re-threading some of it, and then 6 hours on tuesday afternoon. By 9pm on tuesday night it was ready to start.

I weaved for a little and then removed it to inspect how I did.

Since then, Mark has taken over weaving and now has over 4 feet of a table runner complete.

I am just now updating my blog, as our internet provider was bought out and they are changing everything, so internet has been iffy lately.
