Why do you make plans? They never seem to work out. My plan for today was to go shopping at Kohl's. I got up early to go. My husband was going to run to Sam's Club while I ran into Kohl's. 9:30 we were just going out the door. Phone rings. Big mistake---he answered it. A phone system was down, he had to fix it. I decided to go on. But not to Sam's. I don't like going there. Oops--I was out of gas. Stopped, got gas-ouch! $40.00. So I decided to go back home to make one trip at a time.(save gas). I went back home and then started weaving. I was working on my shadow weave towels. Looking good. I really like this one. BUT-here it comes. I am weaving on my Macomber loom. It still has a bit of a problem. I program it but it to pick up 4 shafts. During the weaving it will just drop or not pick one up. I have to watch very close. I was really in a rhythm and did not catch several misses. So maybe somebody out there has a solution to this. Also when I advance and tighten the warp, start to weave the brake or something just gives with a big clang and the warp drops down. Any help would be great.
