27 March: Shuttles!

This week has been a bit of a non-event, as I've been laid low with the lurgy; even stayed in bed one day. So there has not been a lot of fibre activity.

This afternoon, though, a couple of happy hours were spent in the garage, making 2 small shuttles. When my lovely large band shuttle arrived, it was packed between some bits of scrap wood, which then waited patiently in my work-room to be used for something. There was a nasty knot in one bit, but it was big enough to turn into 2 little shuttles.

I drew round the one that came with my inkle loom, and used a variety of tools, saw, chisel, hand drill, jigsaw, and lots of sandpaper. I'm ridiculously pleased with them.
