I have been so good. I've had these pics for three weeks and sat on them, not sharing because I didn't want to tempt Murphy. But IT'S HERE NOW, and IT'S MINE, and obviously I'm very excited. Here's my new baby:
So now I'm very anxious to get a warp on and weaving my first sample piece like Deborah Chandler shows in her DVD and book. After that, I want to try a double-woven shawl - I have lovely Irish yarn from a co-worker, and after all, the weather is cooling.
Oh, and its name is Francis. Which is helpfully written on it, backwards, in a beautiful hand by the woman who originally bought it new.
And I'm gonna need some Stuff to go with it, in time- a skinny heddle hook, a new stainless steel reed, a bobbin winder, more shuttles, a warping board (I think I can make one of those)...I wonder what chair will work best...
