Here is my desk. I can't work with such a mess. I will tell you why it is the way it is.
I don't usually blog today. I thought this would help relieve my anxiety. You know a stress relief. As of Thursday I had gotten my white warp ready for the reed. Since then I found time to warp the reed and tie on. I got started on my first rectangle for the friendship afhgan. I have the Macomber programed and ready. (A quick update. In the past it would drop harnesses or not raise them. I have had trouble with it.) I thought I would give it another try. My mistake. I have woven 2 inches, taken out 1, woven 3, taken out 1 so on an on. It still drops the harnesses or the pistons will not fire to lift them. If you haven't seen a Macomber with a dobie computer, then this makes no sense. The jest is that it is not working. There is a manual mode to which I will have to read the book to see how it works. Here is what I have gotten done finally. It is going to be nice if I can figure out how to get it finished. Think. After this one I only have 15 more to go. Maybe by by blog day I will have it finished.  No, this did not relieve my anxiety. Hope you have a good weaving week.

Until Thursday.

Although I don't have a dobby, I feel your pain! This project has been a challenge for each of us in different ways. Just know I'm sending you positive thoughts!!!

These labor-saving devices can be more trouble than they're worth. Hope you get the sucker sorted soon. Sending good vibes!

Bonnie said...

Thank you guys. The fix may be a $750 Dobbytron box.

Tina said...

I hope you get it sorted out. At least you can go manual.

Linda said...

Wow, the fix sounds expensive. I hope you can get the manual dobby figured out. Don't give up. You will get it going.

Just read what Laura Fry said:
Gotta love the technology - some days. Others - not so much!
I think she meant that for you too, Bonnie!!!
