As you all probably have figured out by now, I spend a lot of time acquiring, organizing and culling. If there were only two categories of people, tossers and savers, I would be in the former, Gene would be the latter. With spring on the horizon, the yarn purging past and the book purging ongoing, I am also taking a hard look at my true equipment needs. The two Louet looms I have are simply wonderful. I love them both and plans are always in the works for weaving projects for them. They are keepers.
The Woolhouse Carolyn has not been put to use at all and while it is a fine and lovely loom, it's a piece of equipment that might be sold for something for which there is a steady and compelling need, so too the Murphy loom.
I have dedicated Murphy to doing prayer flags but while a wonderful friendly loom, I am doing 10-12 inches of weaving width on a 42" loom. Do I NEED that width at all for what it has been earmarked for? No, I don't. It was my first loom though....
So, while I wrestle with equipment changes,( sell one, sell both, sell neither) and hope for some words of wisdom or an equipment epiphany, I'll leave you with this.
