$10, 14 pairs of knitting needles. Yes, metal, but useful to have around for sizes I don’t already have in bamboo.

Another find from the thrift store this weekend; a plastic Weave-It Hand Loom. Something to do tiny samples on, or just a random piece to collect? Hopefully I’ll make use of it.

Sooooo. Going on the theory that:

1) I earned the money, and other than crafts and books I don’t spend a lot

I acquired a table loom via craigslist months ago.

Mountain Loom - maybe

Mountain Loom - maybe but I'm not sure

It has no markings on it, but from what I can tell it might be an elusive Mountain Loom pique table loom. Teksolv heddles, which will take some getting used to. It is a portable 8-shaft loom that I can take to workshops or move easily around the small home. Haven’t tried it out yet but am anxious to try out some 8-shaft patterns for a change.

This is going to require some rethinking of the tiny crafting storage area, and spare materials may end up being jettisoned in order to keep this baby.
