So when Dave from Louet was here Saturday putting my loom together,
he referred to it as an OctaDO..........and not an OcTAdo, which is what I’ve been saying.
I figured since it was a MeGAdo, then it was an OcTAdo.....but I was wrong.
The Dutch make them, and they say MeGAdo........and OctaDO.
I have never warped this way, but since I did not buy the sectional beam, and there IS a raddle on top of the loom, I figured I’d better try it.
I was interrupted this afternoon by our electrician, who came to rewire our well pump.......and it turned into water spraying all over the basement, a useless search for an available plumber, and a save by my neighbor, thank God. So we have water, nothing was rewired, and dirt was tracked through the house from the cellar.
And eventually, I did finish threading and slaying the OctaDO.
It’s ready, so first thing tomorrow I will be firing it up.
And yes, I got the electronic interface.
My decision was based on the number of repeats, a mechanical Dobby does have its limits.
I actually got quite a bit done this morning, before I went into the studio.
I used up some leftover broccoli, added some scallions, some feta cheese, sprayed each cup, and filled them.
Last night’s dinner, I cooked too much, as usual.
13 eggs later ........
Just beat them up, add them slowly to each cup.
Baked at 375 for 25 minutes.
After a busy day, which included a three mile walk between rain showers, we have crashed on the couch.
Life is good.
