You know that thoughtful post about excess, and focusing, and acknowledging that limiting options leads to creativity instead of being overwhelmed?
Well. It does feel great to get stuff I don't use out of the studio. I do have limited time to knit, spin, and weave.
But there was this Cricket rigid heddle loom at the Kid n Ewe festival in Boerne TX yesterday. And I sold another $100 worth of old big-loom weaving equipment. So I thought about it. And walked around the festival. And talked to the store owner a bit more. And walked around thinking. And talked to the owner.
And then I bought it.
It is a little thing, only 15" wide, so I will be weaving scarves, or place mats, or strips put together to make other things. Rigid heddle looms like this are very accepting of types of yarn that would not work well on big floor looms with high tension, so I am planning on playing with all kinds of odd skeins of yarn in the yarn closet. So now I want to put a warp on at least two of the tapestry looms, and on the Cricket. But the Thanksgiving holiday is coming up, and so is a trip, so it might have to wait. Or I will do it tonight, instead of going to bed at a reasonable hour. Because obviously I am not being reasonable.
