From Crickets to Wolfs

print
The Cricket loom is a versatile and fun way to get weaving. If you’ve been weaving on the Zoom Loom, the Cricket Loom is the perfect next step in weaving. Here are a couple recent posts about the Cricket, and the people who use it!

First off, Liz Gipson of Yarnworker has started producing some wonderful how-to videos (her Instagram is also quite fun) using the Cricket Loom and our other rigid heddle loom, the Flip. This video is a fun and informative way to learn how to warp your Cricket loom!

Also on the 10″ Cricket, this stunning scarf was made by Lynette Glass while she was teaching a group of students leno lace technique. The yarn is Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece and was set at 8 epi.

Speaking of lace; your weaving and pattern options grow substantially with the use of a floor loom. Ruth used her cherry Baby Wolf for her huck lace project. This loom is equipped with the versatility to create stunning cloth!

Our Pinterest boards are ripe with ideas, and are just waiting to be viewed. Check out our Cricket Loom board for project ideas for the 10 or 15 inch Cricket Loom, and don’t overlook the Wolf loom board for a taste of what can be done with a harness floor loom.

If you want to keep an eye on what others are doing, or if you want to show us what you are making with our products, tag your posts with #schachtspindle.

We love seeing your work, so keep it coming!
