Getting back into the spring of things...

(My loom looks a lot like this one.)
It's been quite a while since I posted here... but then, it's been quite a while since I've worked on some A&S.

In the last few weeks, when I've been able to sneak in the time, I've started revisiting my fighter pants FINALLY.  Also, I've been working on improving the simple inkle loom that Emelote picked up for me at Pennsic.  It looks a lot like this:

It was roughly made, so I've been sanding it down and smoothing out the lines.  I also picked up some stains to experiment with and I intend on staining the wood and protecting it.  I got some good advice on which products to use so that helps.  I hope it will look great when I'm done, and be infinitely nicer to work with.  Of course, I don't really have an inkle loom project in mind, but I'm still learning so I'll probably just experiment.  I aim to have it finished for the weekend's trek to Late Winter Shoot.

In other news, hooray for spring and shaking off the yoke of winter once again.  I can feel the earth coming alive, and I think it's giving me energy.  (More on that on my LiveJournal).
