Zach Has Been Ordered

That sounded bossy, didn't it? I mean, my loom(a Mirrix Zach) has been ordered and I eagerly await it's arrival...meanwhile, I've window shopped for Perle Cotton in a host of colors...I want to weave with Perle Cotton, am I mad?...and have downloaded files of photos that can be manipulated in PS to make wonderful cartoons for weaving, and I am not through with that yet. The YouTube page has been fairly smoking from watching all the "Tapestry" and "Mirrix" videos. I am so spongelike when it comes to fiber! I think this is the most fun I've had in years...well, at least since I learned to spin.
Back to the colorful cotton...I don't know why that appeals to me...maybe it's low cost (comparatively) and outrageously huge variety of colors from which to choose? I can't say. I just know that I think I could surround myself with the whole line of DMC Perle Cotton and Embroidery Floss and just have a high old time at the loom with it! The color makes me giddy!

Perhaps my book will arrive today. I hope so!!! I only have a few more days of Spring Break, then it's back to work on Monday....I am sad, where did it go and why so quickly?...the bad side of working and having a holiday. I want to retire!!!!

So...for me it's off to get a cup of coffee and perhaps, while waiting for that book, pick up some wool and needles and knit up a pair of socks today.
