Received Shuttle instead of pickup, but quality is still there

So - I will give this a 4-star review because I know it is of great quality based on what I received. I didn't however receive the 25-inch pick-up stick, but a 24-inch shuttle. I ordered in October but the product was slightly delayed due to the current pandemic, and I think during the delay the fulfillment was mixed up. I will not fault the product for that, and I know fulfillment has to be working in hyperdrive during the pandemic. The packing slip states it is a 25-inch pick-up stick, but they are very different from shuttles. Not upset because we can all use another shuttle! I just wish I would have opened the package earlier as I stored it away until I had a pick-up pattern to start last evening. I'll just grab another pick-up stick soon and see if I can't make the shuttle work in its place. The big upside - Kromski shuttles are of great quality and came finished!

You might think that with a rigid heddle loom your weaving projects must be simple in design. After all, such a loom is inexpensive and lacks the “sophistication” of those big floor looms. Not so. There are several ways to add texture and visual appeal to work done on a rigid heddle loom. One is with the use of a pick-up stick.

Pick-up sticks are flat pieces of wood that are sized to work with your loom. Your Kromski Harp loom comes with one pick-up stick. One end is beveled to help you use it.

How is it used? The stick is used behind your heddle. One way to look at it is that with a pick-up stick you trick your loom into thinking it is something it is not; you temporarily change the way the warp interacts with the slots and holes on the heddle. The result is a stunning range of patterns.

With the heddle in the down shed position, pick up the slot threads behind the heddle using the beveled end of the pick-up stick. One pattern, for example, requires every other one of these slot threads to be picked up – over, under, over, under… Once the stick is completely inserted, bring it forward to the heddle and put it on edge. You can see how this imparts a different, temporary shed opening.

There are a number of books and videos that address the use of pick-up sticks. Some sample patterns are shown right. Whatever you are weaving, give it a special look using your pick-up stick.
