I found a loom!
Did I need another weaving loom? No, I did not. I have two floor looms already, plus several other little specialized ones. But...I couldn't pass this one up. Really! 8 harness, 40" weaving width. Back beam converts to sectional. Included a horizontal warping mill, a vertical warping mill, a spool rack, a raddle, two reeds, a shuttle, and a sley hook. (That all is weaverese for Dang, this is a cool loom!!!) No, I'm not telling how much I spent, but much less than the several thousands I should have.
Some people bring home stray cats. I bring home stray looms.
Realistically, I should turn around and place this beauty in a good home. I don't have room, and someone else might love it. I'd give a good deal on it. Probably about $600, which is a steal, but I want it to go be used.
But...I think I want to play with it a few times first! Unless someone snaps it up, I think I'll make some dress fabric. Lets see...I've already got some yarn.....
