My husband is a finicky gamer-boy. He has certain expectations in his games... how a character progresses, how certain accomplishments are achieved, etc. The single-most heard cry from his office (besides "F*#$ this game!") is "I'm starting over!" If his game doesn't go just *so*, he basically reboots it.
I had a similar experience yesterday when I got my birthday gift, the 32" Kromski Harp loom. Once I put it together (withOUT the supposedly included assembly DVD... thanks PF!) it took me a few hours to warp it up. Once I did, I did a few throws and noticed I'd threaded the heddle incorrectly. At first I thought I could live with it (I'd skipped a slot) but as the piece grew, that one line of double threads in the same direction seemed to mock me.
So I cut my first few inches off the loom (perhaps this is what is really meant by the phrase "loom waste"?) and retied it after straightening out the threading. Here's the progress so far:
Despite the fact that I don't have the stand, and the standing over the loom on my low dyeing table has made my back start screaming for mercy, weaving is addictive. I know, I know... some of y'all could have told me that. But I haven't felt this kind of need to "do just one more before I stop!" since the last really good RPG I played.
I think, though, I'm now in a good enough position that I won't feel the need to shout "I'm starting over!" any time soon.
