Okay, so there are no perfect tools but some come close.
I was wondering what your “must have” weaving tools are.
In particular, shuttles.
I have a pair of Howell Little Man boat shuttles that came with my Glimarka. I was considering selling them until I tried them. Those guys are staying put- they feel so good in my hands and the weight’s
ideal. I’m interested in knowing if anyone has Jenkin or Bluster Bay boat shuttles and what they think of them?
I’m really starting to like the snub nosed shuttles.
My abacus and child’s free standing chalkboard have become two of my must have tools!
I use them for treadle tracking. The sequence is written on the board in groups. Then the abacus keeps track of each group as I complete it.
If the phone rings, I just take the chalk and mark the last treadle I used on the chalkboard.
