41  Got a Cricket! First project NEW 9/8 scarf #3 added! in Weaving: Completed Projects by vampedangel14 on: August 30, 2011 07:43:30 AM

So last week on Wed I finally ordered myself a Schacht Cricket loom through Lionbrand since it was on sale and a bit cheaper from there anyway. It arrived Saturday morning before the storm hit. After making sure everything was ready for the storm, I unpacked my loom and put it together and warped it. I finished it up on Sunday. I made the warp a bit too short but I'll get the hang of that eventually.

The yarn I used for the weft is Wool-Ease in the color Autumn. The weft is in the color Fisherman that came with the loom.

So for one of my projects I had to buy a Cricket loom. Since I have done that and finished my first project on it, I can now cross it off! I actually have another scarf started already that's half done! Here is the finished first one.

The warp is Wool-ease in Fisherman that came with the loom. The weft is Wool-ease in Autumn. The scarf on my loom now is all in the Autumn color and it's looking pretty Cheesy

Here it is finished. Got another ball of the rainbow yarn left so am going to do another. Thinking of turning it into a pillow.

I did another weaving yesterday ^.^  I have another ball of that rainbow Landscapes yarn to use up so I'm thinking I'll make a second square and then put them together for a pillow or something.

Alright, two more things off my list. First up is to make something to decorate my room with. I have another one of these planned.

And, I've been wanting to try out resin and so this past weekend I finally bought the stuff for it. I just used a mini browning silicone pan to make these. Now to look for fun moulds!

I have wanting to do weaving for awhile now but have not purchased the loom I've been looking at yet (Cricket). To get some practice in, I through something together on a clipboard.

Wanting to do something bigger so that I could destash some of my yarn and also use the yarn that I spun, I bought a wooden picture frame from Michaels. It was on clearance for $8. I found some nails and put them in at half inch apart around all four sides, and then after supper I went at it.

The weft is yarn that I had a hard time spinning on my drop spindle and it came out very thick. It is a bunch of different fibers mixed together but very pretty. I had no idea what I was going to do with it since it didn't give me too much, but it turns out that it was perfect for this project. It has lots of different texture to it and it looks a little like stained glass.

I'm very happy with how this turned out and am not trying to figure out what to do with it. First I need to get it off though!

Thanks for the comments!
So yesterday I put the nails into the wood frame I bought yesterday to make myself a loom. After supper, I went at it and used up one ball of handspun yarn on it. While it was a pain to spin with, this yarn was made for doing something like this. Now I just need to figure out what to do with the finished piece!

I'm actually pretty proud of how this turned out  Grin

I'm still alive, just been slow with crafty stuff until this past week! ^.^;
I found a new way to destash some of this old thread I have. I have been wanting to do some weaving so I can practice before I order a loom. I"m using stuff I already had too.

I picked up a wood picture frame from a clearance bin at Michaels yesterday and I'm going to get nails for it to make it into a frame loom. Then I can destash more yarn!

I also made one of my dolls a fancy staff (or thwacking stick as I call it), with stuff all from stash. You can also see an outfit in progress that he's wearing.

I see someone made an infinity shirt! Great idea. It actually made me giggle because I made an infinity dress for my doll!

Since I have made multiple dolly outfits, I am happy to mark that one off my list. Though I'll still be making more things for them. I need to get working on other things too.
