No not from Australia, but from down under a loom.
I’ve spent the last couple of days warping and tying-up the Toika. It has been a while since I had tied-up treadles on a countermarch loom. It took time to “wrap my head” around what harnesses and lams should go up and down, and which gets tied to what! I finally got It, and it is now warped with carpet warp for rugs. I think that I am really going to like this loom. It is very quiet and smooth operating and the tension is perfect.
One day I am going to be too old to be crawling around, under and in looms!
It is not easy on your back and knees!
After I got the loom going and started weaving it all seemed to be worth it when
I saw how nice these rugs are going to be!
