About a month ago, I purchased a Cricket Loom by Schacht. Now that the year is coming to a close and all the gifts for Christmas have been made, it is time to give my new toy a try.
Only took me about 20 minutes to assemble the entire loom. It comes with project instructions and two skeins of yarn so you can start right away. What I am going to next is take the online class from Craftsy that covers rigid heddle weaving. The class is taught by weaver Angela Tong. So far I just watched the “intro” section, which is very conversation and relaxed. I have also downloaded project sheets to help with project planning.
So I look forward to going through all the videos and sheets and giving weaving a try! Stay tuned for my first weaving adventure.
