Mine is the 25", It can go up to 30"
Depending on your project different Dent sizes are available.

Hope she still has it. Some of them are extremely huge and can do much more than what I have. They aren't cheap either.

I'm a newbie with this loom. Warping can be challenging after a while.
You start to see stripes and checkers everywhere!

That would be ok if you've had a few
When you haven't..Man, that's when you walk away and take a break.
and go fix one! IF, you can't beat them, join em'

Gack! Why is it all my appointments coagulate around the same time? I did manage to get to my eye appointment yesterday after several reschedulings, and spent most of the day stumbling around with dilated pupils. Beagle goes in to get her shots tomorrow, and of course it coincides with my own tooth cleaning appointment. I rescheduled that.

Join the club. I had a special Social Services appointment this morning, a doctor's appointment tomorrow, a physical therapy appointment on Thursday, and the car goes in on Friday. All these appointments are in the early morning hours, like before 9am, and I am a night person. I'm in bed at 2 or 3am and up at about 10. It's going to be an interesting week.

Oh man, I hate that dilated pupils thing. They tell me it goes away in an hour or two. Yeah, right, maybe for some people. Eight hours later, I'm still feeling it. At least I have learned to take the bus to see my ophthalmologist. He doesn't always do the pupil dilating thing, but often. Then I take a taxi home. Thank goodness it's less than 2 km, so the taxi doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Yep. Takes me a good 8 hours or so too. And I made the mistake of sleeping in my contact lens after we went to a movie the day before. And having an eye appointment the next morning. And having to dig around my eyeball to get the stupid lens out. Duh. It did get me a free bottle of lubricating drops.

No buses or taxis here in our little town. Just me.

Did a very stupid thing. Drank a whole Dairy Queen Moolate. While it was delicious, I have a feeling I may be awake for awhile.

Sitting here with a big grin on my face.

I'll be getting a (neighbor txt) any time now.
Garbage pick up is today. They picked up mine. Passed hers.

I really did it last week when I suggested that she call the disposal company for a replacement.
She by her reply didn't like my suggestion. I see she didn't use it.
Can I say I told you so? LOL!!!
