The AVL is finally as of yesterday up and weaving. Over a month later… Sheesh thanks to Bob Kruger @AVL’s help. Tried everything I could think of and more. Basically all that AVL suggested until the magnet check. First it would lift the first two shafts of my draft then five or six random ones. Turned out it was a magnet sensor that was bad, actually it was loose but I installed a new one. Was hung up on how to plug it into the computer board my son saw some elusive dot on it and it is working fine now. Blew some canned air into various areas, who knew people were huffing it. So now I’ve changed a battery in a laptop, a fan and now this, more than I ever wanted to learn!
I’m weaving a overshot draft on that loom that only requires four shafts. Seems silly on a 24 shaft loom but I wanted the width as it is 60 inches wide. Finished another long, long term project started just before Dave’s dementia got so bad. That whole studio of the house was put aside because I couldn’t leave his side. Now the finishing starts hemming etc.
As to CSM knitting I’ve gone off the deep end. My ribber attachment is on it’s way, eventually from Dean and Bean https://www.deanandbean.com/ long wait list. I’ve lost count of the number of socks I have already made on the 1.0. Their photo below shows the 2.0 and ribber, Mine will be purple. These are reasonably priced machines are definitely a gateway drug. I just ordered a Legare CSM off eBay by a respected seller of them in Quebec Canada. Then ordered a book as the one that comes with it is ancient and hard to follow, downloaded the PDF. also a buckle that holds the weight. LOL now to find yarn money. Have one sock order already that should be fun as it is two sizes down from mine.
My finished ones minus a pair in the washing machine. Most proud of the black trimmed pair. That pair has been on tiny knitting needles for years but because of my arthritic thumb were never finished. Will post more on my adventures in Ribbing and Legare that might arrive first!
