When our shop Cricket Loom came earlier this year, I had been sent home with this and with all the enviable job of learning to utilize it. I had never stitched yet also the instructions made it effortless to construct, sew, and then weave onto the Cricket. My initial attempts were twisted and humbling, however, so long had been making smooth woven cloth I was proud of. In just several evenings, I’d gone through the yarn that’s included with this particular Celtics and turned right in my stash.
I used Berroco Pure Pima to weave a little kitchen towel, then experimented with a number of lace weight yarns to sew 1 scarf (pictured above), another in parts of shed pounds, by Yarn Hollow Photograph into Berroco Ultra Alpaca. Before every new style job, I researched Jane Patrick’s Weaver’s Idea Book, that may be full of inspiration and information in equal amount.
