Rigid Heddle looms- the next big thing

Yes you heard it here, rigid heddle looms are the next big thing in fibre works. I knew it three years ago when Ashford came out with their Knitter's Loom. Very smart I thought, to get in on the scarf craze, and snap up all those new knitters, and excited experienced knitters. The weaving wave is is up and let's hope it keeps on going for a long while. With time and energy in such short supply these days, but the desire to find creativity and beauty in our lives, how perfect is the much overlooked rigid heddle. You only have to look at
to see how the rigid heddle group has taken off. The Ashford rigid heddle looms of all sizes and models are walking out of my shop, with their new owners so excited about a new creative outlet for themselves as well as another way to eat away at their yarn stashes. I love the fact that I'm recruiting new weavers one, sometimes, two at a time.

Fabulous Berocco Designs

I can't get enough of the new fall designs from Berocco. Absolutely gorgeous! The yarns are really yummy as well. I love Peruvia, such nice rich colours. And who doesn't love the Ultra Alpaca line. I can't remember a fall season when there were so many designs, especially sweaters that I wanted to make.

I finally got the chance to really sit and read the postings on Ravelry yesterday. So many of the projects are absolutely inspiring. I have so little spare time, but I will have to save a little for this group. There's a lot that it offers. It also makes me realize how small the world is becoming.
