BIG LEIGH, THE HOME-MADE COUNTERMARCH LOOM
In my spare time I have been putting together a home-made countermarch loom at The Chicago Weaving School with Natalie Boyett and Emily Winter. I am planning to weave some beautiful blankets on this guy! Natalie acquired this loom by the woman who use to weave on it, it was made for her by her husband. There are no plans so we have been kind of just figuring out how to construct it as we go along. Emily and Natalie did the bulk of constructing it and I came in later to set up the harnesses and the the contraptions. The loom break is particularly interesting because none of us can figure out how it works! Should be interesting to weave on. (Or totally frustrating!)



The other night Mike and I were walking home from Lula cafe and this red balloon was floating down the street. Such a sweet visual.
