So, um, I bought a floor loom. As if our place wasn't cramped enough for space as it is. And the kicker, I have no idea how to use it either. I've been carting around a table model LeClerk that I picked up from Utsi for years now with no idea how to set it up or weave with it, and now I'm adding a 36" floor-model monstrosity to my house.

I think the plan will be to join the local weaver's guild in the fall and bring the table model out to learn the basics and apply them on the big model at home. It's exciting and yet daunting and somewhat terrifying at the same time. The idea of having the ability to weave my own fabric just gives me shivers (the good kind). And yet I know that weaving your own is often more pricey than buying from a fabric store, so I fear for my bank account as well as my sanity.

Still trying to think of what I'm going to say to the hubby when this thing walks in the door. Maybe I'll just put it in my sewing room and he might not even see it... yeah, that's what I'll do.
