Sunday Bliss

It's been a few days since I had last written but it's because I have been so busy that I haven't wanted to stop and write. I'm sorry
I have a new addiction, like I need another one, it's weaving.
While at my daughters in May, I came across this little rigid heddle loom.

It's a Schacht Cricket 10" Loom. A little one. Wasn't sure if this was something I would like or be able to master, so a small one made since. Thought was didn't want to spend too much on something I had no idea about what I was getting into.
Knowing that knitting, crocheting and all other handwork aggravates my carpel tunnel and can only do so much before it starts to bother me. 

And I have all this yarn in my stash that I want to use. Made a few scarfs but had to stop and rest, doesn't help that hand sewing affects the wrist also. I have to pick and choose what to work on.

Figure weaving would be easier on the wrist and it is.

It's very fast way to make a simple scarf, my first project took me only a couple days to learn and make.

Love it, love the rhythm on moving the shuttle and heddle.
Very relaxing and doesn't hurt even after a couple hours at working on it. Not like handwork.

This is what I'm working on today, started this yesterday and have about 30' woven already.

I need to thou spend a little time this evening finishing the wool applique for the Words to Live By.

  1. I have looked at looms a couple of times for an alternative craft but couldn't make my mind up. It certainly looks impressive and would make some beautiful table runners.

  2. Ohhh that looks really fun! I could really get into that... don't even tempt me!!!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
