I Have Pirns!

By Leigh

4, new to me pirnsThese are for my bargain shuttle. They were passed on to me by Barb, after they were passed on to her. I feel equipped!

Now, I freely confess that it will be awhile before I get to try my new shuttle. I'm still cutting rags for the rag rug I'm planning for the bedroom, and that will be the first project on my loom once I can get back to weaving. But I will definitely be learning to use it in the not so distant future.

So, a heartfelt thanks to Barb, and also to everyone who left me helpful and encouraging comments about my new shuttle. All are very much appreciated.

    I'm impressed that you've got a weaving project on the horizon with all the house projects you've been doing!

  2. They look good, but I'm wondering do the pirns fit the shuttle? I have to use different pirns with my different shuttles.

  3. I guess there's no cure for it - sigh. I'd better start collecting aluminum cans so I can afford an end-feed shuttle. I'm not going to find one in a thrift store in Northern Nevada!

  4. Wonderful! Sooner or later you'll get back to that loom. I bet she's feeling quite neglected. :-)

  5. If those pirns don't fit your shuttle, check at flea markets and antique markets. I've seen a variety of them at more than reasonable prices. One place was 3/$1 ... though they are more usually between $1 and $3 a piece. A girlfriend even brought me back one from a Vermont holiday which was 50cents! They are all slightly different though, so no telling which will fit what shuttle.
