Crazy as a Loom

Monday, February 12, 2018


Sometimes I get myself into predicaments.
Well intentioned, but still.

I bought this great shelving unit cheap.  It's on wheels, and has shelves on both sides.  It sat on my back porch for two weeks, while I tried to figure out how to get it into the house.
It would NOT come through the back door.
Too many obstacles.

So I finally bit the bullet.   It had to come through the front door.  I had a contact from craigslist, that was going to do some shoveling for me, so I called him.

He brought his girlfriend, who he assured me was very strong.


Finally.  Inside.

Lois calls it the "white elephant" in the room.

I spent today cleaning and organizing and filling it up.  The shelves on the side towards the wall have those things we seldom use, but have to keep.
And since it's on wheels, it's pretty easy to move out from the wall.

You might notice that I had to remove the bottom shelf on the wall unit, to make room.

My morning coffee view......
I love this old house.
And early morning is my favorite time of day.

This is the 12/2 RS cotton on the loom right now.

Being done with baby wraps, I feel quite free to weave whatever I want.  So I do.

Sometimes, I am not even sure what it will be when it comes off the loom.

But I'm very pleased with this one.

Building stock up is a good way to get through this weather.
Here are three more Möbius shawls.

Naya is a different dog, one month later.
She is totally comfortable, and settled.
It's a beautiful thing.

She has given up sleeping in the dog bed on the floor in my room.  She has taken up residence in my bed, right next to me.  
I love that she is happy, and she trusts me.

I tried some other colors on this bronze warp, but it seems to keep crying for red.
Who am I to argue???

What a perfect fit for your new dog. She is just beautiful and seems like she is loving her new life. I would never be without a fur baby or two around. My pups make life so enjoyable.

If you don’t mind my asking, what length do you usually weave for your moebius shawls? I did some infinity scarves that were a little too short so I don’t want to repeat that flop. I appreciate your advice. Thanks,
