Road Trip!!!

What you see here are THREE happy campers weavers!!!  Yesterday, Bonnie drove down to R&M Yarns in Cleveland to get some supima for hand towels.  All of us ended up with a large cone of that!  Yes, Linda and I tagged along!  Since Tina had plenty of mop cord for me, I could look for other things.  And, there's always something you just gotta get!

I LOVE my 11 inch Schacht shuttle, but I need one that holds a bigger bobbin (we're getting ready to weave bamboo shawls for our challenge) and I wanted a bobbin that would hold more thread.  I found a Schacht shuttle that was 13 inches, and it takes a 5 inch bobbin.  It has the same sleek design that I love to hold/throw.  Can you tell I'm thrilled?????  I also bought a pair of wool & nylon handcrancked socks.  Candee said they are made by a little man that's 94 years old!!!!

Bonnie took a LONG look at the thread on the 1/2 price rack.  Decisions.....decisions!!!

Linda found a pair of socks that she needed to take home, too!  That, along with a few cones of thread made the trip back to her new studio!

  It was a sunny day....just right for friends to undertake a road trip! We had a wonderful, relaxing lunch before we headed back.  And, I think we all came home happy!  I'm sure that you will see Bonnie and Linda's towels before you get to see mine!!!!

Happy Weaving,
