The Aura is in a box in my workshop. Just thought I'd let you know :-)
Here is all the stash reduction I have been doing with my Cricket Loom over the past couple of weeks. I have scarves, coasters, and even made fabric for the Little Hippie Vest.
I was not sure I'd like weaving because compared to my passion, (lace knitting) it seemed very boring. BUT I was wrong on both counts. It is a lot of fun - very relaxing. I can finish a project in a couple of days rather than a couple of weeks. I can use up yarn - it takes much less yarn to weave a scarf than it does to knit one. And I can carry on a conversation while I work (unlike lace knitting DON'T TALK TO ME I'M COUNTING!!)
Yesterday I got a delivery of looms from Schacht. I have 6 Cricket Looms, a 15" Flip Loom, and a 20" Flip Loom. If you're interested in learning to weave and prefer to own the best quality rigid heddle loom available, send me an e-mail or give me a call. The Crickets are $140, 15" Flip is $235, and the 20" Flip is $255. All of the looms are portable and easy to assemble. They're made of beautiful, SOLID maple and the kits include a warping peg, 8 dent reed, heddle hook, shuttles, and instructions for warping and a couple of practice projects. FREE shipping! And the Flip looms come with a free gift of yarn and a lovely "how to" book with multiple small projects. Stash Reduction Rules!!
