Friday Susan from Kitkatknit and I took a road trip! Not just a lazy Sunday drive.... we had a purpose. We were off to Goldendale (about 230miles round trip) to pick up a Leclerc Artisat loom. We not only just picked it up but we stole it! I purchased it off Craigs list for a measly $200. Yes can you believe it?!?!? Susan was the expert as I knew nothing about looms. On the way up I kept asking Susan questions and she tried to show me pictures and explain. I say tried as I was driving so it was the most efficient show and tell not to mention not the safest. The loom deal was quite the steal. Besides the loom it came with the warping board, bobbin winder, two shuttles, and a couple of other accessories that I haven't put the name with the face on. There was two bags of yarn that came with it but I am finding out that it is very old and brittle. So I am reading the Learning to Weave book to try and figure out how to warp it. (I told you I new nothing.) While in Goldendale we went to an Art Studio, Art Gallery, and met a really cool dog. I'll let Susan tell the tale on them as she has all of the pictures.
