I work in a yarn store, as I have previously mentioned, frequently, but I don't know if I shared that the yarn store is owned by a company that makes wooden toys and rigid heddle looms.
I wish we sold the toys in the yarn store, but we don't.
We do however sell the looms.
Well, I decided that if we sell looms then I should learn how to use them so I would be a better salesperson and that is why I signed up for the weaving class that I spoke of last week.
What I didn't know it how satisfying it is to weave a scarf in a couple of hours, or how quickly I would become obsessed.
This may be the year that everyone I know gets a scarf for Christmas.
Since I finished my first project on Saturday at class I have woven two more scarves.
The first two were warped with fingering weight yarns, and the third was with a lace weight.
I'm not totally sold on the third one.
It could be the color.
I was using up some stash...
Anyway, all I can think about is getting back to the yarn store to lay out a couple of more warps to do more and more scarves.
I have to give the loom back at the end of class, it's only a loaner.
Maybe by the end of class I will have this out of my system.
If not, I guess I'm buying a loom.
