Back to the Loom

I've felt so awful for a long time, I haven't actually woven anything at all during September. The last thing I did before the Alaska trip was weave some short samples, to find out if the loom's additional 4 modules were working properly. The 4 new ones were, but some of the original modules had decided to misbehave. Until today, I haven't felt like asking DH to replace any hooks - if I wasn't going to weave, no point in asking, right? Anyway, 2 new hooks/plungers/springs on module 5 (the old module 3) and we're weaving.

I'm about halfway through an image based on a photo of the Kruger girls: Bob's wife and two daughters. The photo was taken over a year ago (maybe two?) so I hope it will find a happy home at the AVL shop or at the Kruger home. In any case, the image is landscape format and not too tall, so it makes a good test image. So far, no hook errors at all. Hooray!

You can't see much of Mrs. K so far, just her cheek and hair, but the two little girls are looking good!

Very nice. Glad to hear you are feeling well enough to weave.

Glad you're starting to feel better. Those coughs-that-linger are so debilitating. What a lovely image to go back to the loom with.
