There's an Heir Loom in the Studio

Introducing Ukki, the rug loom built by my grandpa.

I'll admit, I haven't been knitting much lately because I've been spending a lot of time with the literal heir loom that now resides in my studio.

I vividly remember two things about my grandparents' house. No matter the time of day or night, it always smelled like coffee when you walked into their kitchen and a magnificent loom lived in their basement. It wasn't until much later in life that I learned those two things were related to their Finnish heritage.
