Retirement Fun

Yesterday, Emery and I took a class in Rigid Heddle weaving and we enjoyed it so much.
Since I am a spinner, knitter, we wanted to find something for Emery to do that was in the same line of crafting.   He loves detail and finds it soothing to untangle knots in yarn so in my mind it seemed he would enjoy warping a loom.  To me it seems about the same kind of work !   We both enjoyed the class so much, it was a full day of learning and weaving. 9-5.  Warping the rigid heddle is not too bad so I didn't mind even doing that part.  We are certain that weaving is a perfect fit for Emery, so we purchased a Schacht Flip loom and stand.   We see hours of fun working side by side, near the warmth of the wood stove, spinning and weaving together.
