A spinner who weaves

It has been too long since I last posted. A lot of spinning has happened, but additionally I have been weaving on my Rigid Heddle loom.  Most excitingly for my I have been working to get the Newcomb Studio loom I bought when I was 13, into good fettle. This has sat in the basement for the past 21 years my unused and unloved. I am happy to say that it is in good condition, all parts present and working. I am hoping to warp it next weekend and get to weaving.

You bought that when you were 13??? Somehow, I thought it belonged to one of your moms. Wow, you were forward-thinking. And knew a good loom when you saw it.
