Countermarch

In January I bought a Glimakra 47" standard. I have been working my way through putting it together, tying it up, untying it up, buying the definitive book (Joanne Hall) and then tying it all up again correctly.  

 The warp that I put on is  two colours of Bendigo 2 ply (Pampas and Ginger) set at 18epi.
The knee beam makes a handy place to rest the reed when sleying

.




To my surprise I was able to get right into the loom (it was a bit of a squeeze) and after a while I was positively hopping in and out.  It is better than yoga!
