Assembling the Cricket Loom

About a month ago, I purchased a Cricket Loom by Schacht. Now that the year is coming to a close and all Cricket Loomthe gifts for Christmas have been made, it is time to give my new toy a try.

The first thing I needed to do was assemble it. Now anyone who knows me knows I am far from a fan when it comes to assembling, well…anything. The Cricket comes with a detailed directions, but I found the images to be a little too close up to really understand what needed to be done. So I went online and found a great step-by-step assembly video from WEBS. It was exactly what I needed!

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 aAssembled Cricket Loomway. 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.
