How to Assemble a Schacht Cricket Loom

Leslie Ann Bestor shows you how to assemble the Schacht Cricket Loom.

The Cricket Loom is compact, capable and cute! At only 11" x 18" x 6" and just under four pounds, it's easy to take along. The ten inch weaving width gives plenty of room to make a variety of projects without sacrificing portability. The Cricket is made of high quality maple an apple ply and hard maple and left unfinished. As of April 2010, the Cricket has been redesigned with the ratchet gear and dog on the outside of the loom to make it even easier to adjust tension.

How to do a Bound Off Hem for Top-Down Knitting

When knitting a garment from the top down, a bound-off hem may be just the right hem if you prefer knitting to sewing. It is similar to the 3-needle bind off where you knit together the live stitches with a strand from the back of your fabric as you bind off. Note that the Bound-Off Hem will be bulkier than a sewn bind-off. Be careful to bind off loosely so your hem has enough stretch.

We're very excited about this addition to Valley Yarns Northfield is a glorious blend of merino, baby alpaca, and silk.

Valley Yarns Goshen Review

Kathy Elkins presents Valley Yarns Goshen! We fell in love with this yarn at first sight. Valley Yarns Goshen is soft but the Modal® and silk not only add a slight sheen, but also durablity. Garments will not pill and will stand the test of time.
