I finished the scarf that I was working on for my friend! I'm really happy with the way that it turned out.
The picture really doesn't do the colors justice.
I can't wait to get another project on the loom, but my loom broke while I was weaving and I'm hesitant to put another project on until I have my dad look at it. One of the cranks on the back screws into the back beam and I don't know if the screw is stripped or what happened, but it cam out of the back beam and I can't get it to screw back in. I can put it in the hole, but it won't stay in. While I was weaving this, I had to really be careful when winding forward because too much tension would cause the screw to fall out again. I didn't notice it causing problems to my tension overall, but I don't want to have any sort of problems develop, so it is probably safer to wait.
I also decided that I want to look in to getting a floor loom, even though I don't really have any place to put it at the moment. But, I have some projects in mind that I really need need a wider width and more harnesses for, so if I could get an 8 harness loom, I would be super happy. I'd be happy with 4 harnesses too, however. I'm going to start looking into grants and other opportunities to purchase one.
On another note, today is the last day of 2015 and I couldn't be happier about it. This year has been really hard, just one unfortunate event after another, and it will not be missed. I'm hoping that 2016 will be a lot better. I want to start applying to shows again and really start to produce some solid work, since that has been nonexistent this past year. And I am still crossing my fingers with regards to that job I applied for a week before Christmas. I'm going to call and check on the status of my application early next week. I figured I would wait until after the holidays.
So, I'm still asking for good vibes to be sent my way.
Happy New Year!
