I simply have too much on the go and its difficult to know where to start or what to finish. I finally got the second diamond shawl woven off. I even wove off seven or eight yards of towels on the Megado! I struggled with the loom, the brake, and found myself having to tighten nuts and bolts every half a towel or so. Something was off and I couldn't put my finger on the issue. The rolled up raw cloth is sitting on the office shredder waiting for the desk to be clear so I can dig out the serger and secure the edges before wet finishing...

|...doesn't look like 8 yards does it?|
|its half way done at least...|
|more warps to wind, wheels to spin...|

I had a warp ready to be wound on to the Spring and another ready to go on the Megado. Hubby came in yesterday morning to assist me and we got the longer eight yard cotton warp wound onto the Spring with no issues. Love this little loom!
The Megado has a narrow warp of tencel waiting and I told him this won't take long..... and before we knew it three hours had gone by and we were exhausted! I casually mentioned the issue I was having with the loom and then he noticed some chaffing on the wood. Long story short, it seems some carriage bolts were installed in the wrong locations and while the loom worked, it wasn't happy. We identified the longer bolts and where they needed to go and thought we could take them out sequentially but its not that simple as we quickly discovered.

Oh yeah.... and its summer with other outdoor distractions too.
