The Rearranged Studio

Before we got distracted by the drama of the deerstalkers, we did some major heavy lifting in the studio. Fortunately, the local DIY store has nice pads that go under the feet of heavy furniture, so you can just slide it into place. It still takes some effort, but not like real lifting.

Yes, that big empty space is where the 24-shaft loom used to be, and where the Jacq3G will go.

The 24-shaft loom is now in its new position:

In the picture, DH is standing inside the loom to make adjustments to the multitude of cables - cables for the computer, cables for the dobby unit, etc. One thing we did away with was the Ethernet cable. The computer is now (and the computer on the jacquard will be) wireless!

The Glimakra is now (temporarily) in the kitchenette:

In the next few days, I'll post sales ads for the Glimakra in various online locations. Details will be posted here as well.

P.S. Tim is still exhausted today, and is spending his time napping under the dining table. No more deer for him!

I love your husband's t-shirt. I have one that says
