Introducing: Pa’u Zotah Zhan

Zhan, Daisy Hill Handiworks peg loom with nylon pegs

This is Pa’u Zotah Zhan, the very beautiful peg loom custom-made for me! She was made by Daisy Hill Handiworks, owned by Lynette and Mike Richter. Lynette is a fellow Raveler and had emailed me about her looms when she read about the less-than-stellar  Callimoor peg loom that I’d bought. She told me what she did, and asked me what I wanted in a peg loom. Well, I already had the wonderful Finniwig Studios peg loom for chunkier yarn; what I needed was a loom for finer yarn that could replace the Callimoor, and I had seen some fantastic examples from the UK whose pegs were nylon, instead of wood. So that’s what I asked for. Lynette had never made nylon pegs before, so we agreed that I would be the guinea pig on this experiment. I am thoroughly happy with the results!! I got exactly what I asked for, without having to pay for shipping from Europe! Lynette did a fantastic job. She had even asked me what my favorite color was, so if I wanted the loom base painted she would have an idea of what colors to use. Naturally, my color is purple, so purple pansies were the order of the day!

I am going to put in a shameless plug here: Lynette and Mike are just getting Daisy Hill Handiworks off the ground, so there is no website yet for me to link to. However, I asked Lynette what information I could put in the blog so that any interested parties could reach her. I didn’t want to compromise their privacy, but Lynette said it was okay to put it all down here, so here it is:
