I often say I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head. I’ve baked bread obsessively, I knit, spin and sell yarn, I P90X, run (when my leg works) and bike commute. I am never at a loss for things to do. Which is why I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head. But last year, I was with some knitting friends (danger zone number one) sewing together a baby blanket for a fellow knitter, and we had some wine (which is danger zone number 2) and the host friend pulled out her knitters loom (danger zone number 3). She started extolling the great benefits and yarn eating capabilities of said loom, and immediately, three of us decided we needed one. But we all decided we didn’t each need one, what we needed was a loom time share. But where do we find a time share loom? Here is where wine, groupings of knitters with yarn coming out our ears and a little ingenuity comes in… We bought one together, and it is now my time with our time share loom. And it’s brilliant. It eats yarn and scrap yarn like nobody’s business, turning it into Christmas presents faster than you can say BAM.
