Boy am I excited! I got my Glimarka Emilia in the mail today. This is a very sturdy little rigid heddle loom for me to use at demos. The Emilia has a 13 inch weaving width and is designed and built with all the care and attention to detail that Glimarka puts into their larger looms. It did not take long at all to have the Emilia ready to warp and weave on BUT it is time for me to get some sleep so the warping and weaving will have to wait until tomorrow.

It is done finally! This is the last of the three scarves I was weaving with variegated yarn. This one has the same variegated yarn for both the warp and weft. I think the pattern it made is very interesting.
Now on to more intriguing things. Toli and I will be doing a Weave along/workshop on Summer and Winter weave. We found a really nice towel pattern that uses that weave structure in a "Best of Interweave".
We have our threads here for the towels and have been waiting for me to get the Beka empty so we could warp up both looms at the same time. We are in love with the colors the towels call for. If nothing else they should be pretty ;-)
This will be my first attempt with (gulp)double heddles. I will also need a pickup stick for this project. Toli with his four shaft Baby Wolf will only need to thread his loom right
