What's on the Loom?


This is Paul's blanket I've been working on. It's on my big LeClerc loom. I'm doing it in 4 panels, finished size will be 110 inches X 120 inches, for our king size bed. I'm hoping my seams will be fine enough to not be seen after it's been fulled. I'll keep you posted on the progress. All the sheep are represented in the big checkerboard, and it's not real fancy so he's happy.
I want to get this one done soon, as I'm already planning a Summer & Winter project, which I'll need at least 6 harnesses and 10 treadles! By the time I'm done with Paul's blanket, my research will be done and I'll be so very ready to go!

I found your comment on a knitting machine site and it sent me here. I just found my mother's knitting machine in the rafters. It is a Passap speedomatic model 201 I have no manual and no clue how to use it. Would I be able to get a copy to download from you?
Loved the blanket too!
Thanks,
Joan Gerritsen

Dear Deb Lueders,
I also found your comment on a knitting machine site. My husband just surprised me with a Passap Speed O Knit M-201, but it did not come with a manual. I was wondering if you might be willing to email a copy of yours. I would be so greatful! Thank you for your time.

Hi there--

I was wondering if you could help me. I think I was at your studio for the fall art tour (I only went to one fiber studio, but was in so many towns, I can't remember exactly where I was anymore!) I'm pretty sure it was yours, though, because you look familar! The studio I was in had a small table loom sitting for the visitors to weave a bit on... If this was your studio and your loom, could you let me know what brand/model this loom was? My daughter (who is 9) and I really enjoyed it! Thanks so much for letting people into your studio!

Hi!
I was wondering if you can help me. My daughter and I went to a fiber studio during the fall art tour. I think it was yours-- I'm pretty sure it was yours (because you look familar!), but we had gone to so many towns and visited so many artists, I'm not positive. However, if this was your studio, there was a small table loom set up for visitors to try their hand at weaving on. If this was your stuido, can you tell me the make/model of this table loom? My daughter (who is 9) and I really enjoyed the art tour and the fiber studio/farm so much! It is wonderful that the artists open their studios like that! Thank you!
