The final countdown; 32″ Kromski Harp Rigid Heddle Loom

Posted by on December 13, 2013 at 3:57 pm.

Early this morning, I finally purchased the 32″ Kromski Harp Rigid Heddle loom. I love this particular loom. Clean lines, simple, it’s beautiful! It’s a Polish made weaving loom, and I’m really looking forward to delving into another fiber craft.

It usually takes me a while to make a purchase. I thoroughly research the product, read the pros and cons. If it’s a gadget I’ll read the manual and watch a video if any are available.

I’ve already found a place where I’ll be storing my Rigid Heddle loom. The smaller looms can be placed in your lap, but check out that 32″ monster? Do you honestly think it’d be comfortable to balance that thing on my legs!I’m 5′ and petite, that’s not going to happen.

I looked a lot of places for the above loom, and  I was tempted to purchase on Ebay or Ravelry; both cost lower than what I paid for at The Woolery. I could have picked up the loom, stand, extra heddles, books, etc on Ravelry for a stupidly low price but since I did not know the sellers history, I opted to purchase it new which meant I paid $240. Since I don’t like bills, this like many other small items was paid in full.

Rather than being turned off by a new craft, I’m invigorated since at times it feels great to have those mixed emotions; excitement, frustration, with a slight bit of intimidation.

As I mentioned before, I’ll be sure to post some of my beginning projects here on this site. It’ll be nice to monitor my weaving skills as I progress with this new craft.

Of course the name of this post made me think of the song that bears the same name.
