I start with a cup of kale. That's a given.
After that I use my imagination. This one was kale, a frozen banana, an apple, protein powder, a teaspoon of turmeric, and water. It was incredible.
Because I don't eat meat, I need the kale, and some days, I need the protein powder. And it fills me up until lunch time. And it's good.
I've been weaving on my AVL, loving my e-lift.
I have a 75 yard towel warp on, and after scouring for empty bobbins, I decided to gather up all my random bobbins that had cotton on them, and use them up.
Apparently I have been stashing them for a while, from a lot of different projects.
But boy, do I have a LOT of empty bobbins.
And the colors are pretty interesting together, at least I think so.
Right in the middle of weaving today, something went amiss. I realized that the same shed kept opening. I figured out that the cable that moves the dobby mechanism up and down, had broken, AGAIN. This was the second time.
So I went to my neighbor's machine shop, again, and begged for help. He looked at it, said it was not designed very well, since it keeps on breaking. He sent me to the hardware store, with a list, all the while muttering about those guys in California.
When I came back, he put this new piece together and sent me home to put it on the loom.
And it works like it is supposed to. This is the SECOND revamp of my AVL that he has done, to make it work better. I think he may be smarter than the guys that made it.
