My big Macomber is called Harry. Harry has been dormant for some time, and he seems to be trying to help me get him warped... but, wow... it's a little like he's been wondering in the woods without an oil can for far too long. It is not the prettiest warp I've ever put on. I am warping a sectional beam as if it is a plain beam. I enjoy front to back warping, and that is all I've ever done on my smaller Macomber. I can warp like this and drive a car at the same time it feels so comfortable. But, not today, and not with Harry.
I am making a rag rug for a friend to give to a friend as a birthday gift. I don't think now is the time to dwell on the fact that I haven't really made many rag rugs before! (I do have the cutest little samples of weft faced wool rugs...) Below is a photo of Harry last Christmas. I pulled him from the wall for a dusting.
He deserves more.
