"New" loom finally assembled

My goodness, it has been a while since we lasted updated this blog.  Two years ago a Friend and I drove 13 hours to Talent Oregon to meet a Talented weaver who was moving out of the country and had to sell her looms and materials.  I purchased her loom and all of her remaining materials and got a great price for the lot.  The loom and the materials have been sitting in my garage doing nothing but collecting dust.  Well no more.  After assisting a friend with setting up her loom and teaching her how to weave I decided to turn my guest room into my studio and assembled the beauty you will see below.

The loom is a 1989 AVL Production Dobby Loom (PDL) with 16 shafts with Comp-Dobby I.  I am currently awaiting new parts for the loom that got lost in transit. Once I have the parts I will begin a new run if shawls on this beautiful machine. Watch this space for more updates.

Weaving Underway

Here is a new photo to show my progress (or lack thereof) of the wool-silk-alpaca scarves.

It has been over a year since my last post and I regret not doing so earlier.  I have relocated to the beautiful Salt Lake Valley in Utah.  Give the unfamiliar weather and lots of snow I have decided to make some new scarves to keep myself and my customers warm this winter. They are being made out of 50% Merino Wool/50% Silk for the warp and 80% Alpaca/20% Silk for the weft. Below is a picture of the yarn on its cones.
 Are the colors lovely or what?

The pattern I have chosen is the same as the Blue and Purple scarves I made two years ago.

Hope you are all having a wonderful New Year and are keeping warm.

Scarf photos

I just got five scarves back from my very talented photographer. I think she has staged these scarves very well. Let me know what you think. These scarves will be up on my etsy site The Loomy Weaver soon. Don't forget to follow my blog for more updates.

New scarf project

This scarf is done in 4/4 cotton verigated warp and red wool weft.  I can't wait to see how this combination works out.

My new (to me) loom

This loom was made on sweden about 35 years ago so the last owner tells me.  It is a lot of fun to weave on.
