Finally, we got around to putting a warp on the Union Custom, and we used the NEW system.
No tension box. I was a little suspicious, but once I got going, I began to be very impressed.
The tension is marvelous.
The system comes complete, except for a 4" C clamp, that holds the reed on the back beam.
I had help, "L" was on the other side of the back beam, which made it go much faster.
I am not sure I will give up my tension box and regular spool rack. But I don't think I will use them very often. This is just so much more efficient, and easier

The birds are crazy at the feeders again, they know when we are getting another storm.
Snow tonight, then 2 days of rain.
I do my usual. One day at a time. It is the only way to get to spring from here.
I have three orders in the works, and a couple of more pending, so I am busy.
And as always, the studio needs some attention, some cleaning, some organizing.
First weaving weekend of the year coming up next week.
I kind of want to bake something tonight, or maybe make some soup. But I am not all that motivated to do either. I just keep thinking about doing them.
Have you had those moments? Good ideas, but no energy to make them happen.
I have some knitting to do, and a new book on my Kindle. But I am not inspired to do those things either.
So maybe I will just make some popcorn, watch American Idol, go in the hot tub, and go to bed.
Now THAT sounds like a plan.
