I no longer have 30 clay weights as Tristan found them and thought they made a most marvelous crash when they hit the concrete. He had broke two and was on number three by the time I was able to stop him.

-But that is all ok because I still need to make more anyway...

So...I know it's been a while.

Between Christmas, Gulf Wars prep, and event stewarding, my loom got bumped to the back burner. Hopefully in the next month or so I will be warping it! I have read, and read, and read...I get the concept - once I was able to visualize in my head the way that it's suppose to work - and life has slowed as much as it will - I'm itching to get started.

The first thing I'm going to do is a test warp. I'm going to use commercial thread and I'm just going to tie on the warp and not card weave it into a band. Since the test warp is simply to get the mechanics of the loom down I see no need to make it any harder than it needs to be. I will probably end up with something big enough that I can make something for my son :)
