I’m so behind on posting. I’ve been extremely neglectful of this site and my regular blog. Life has kept me busy. Well, and my toddler. But a lot has happened.
At the beginning of Dec, I went to the Cracker Christmas Festival at Fort Christmas in Orlando. A friend was demonstrating triangle loom weaving and I got interested in weaving. So I purchased a set of 7″ looms from Hazel Rose Looms. I’m having so much fun weaving on these small looms. It’s the perfect excuse to use up my stash acrylic. I’m making a bunch of squares and will crochet them together to make a scrappy afghan.
I also got interested in loom knitting. So I purchased a small gauge knitting board from KnittingBoard.com. I’ve yet to complete a project on it. I’m having trouble adjusting to the nails (as opposed to pegs with grooves). Because of that, I’ve also purchased a regular gauge knitting board from Decor Accents. I think I will like it better because of the pegs. Then for Christmas, I received the round and long set of Knifty Knitter looms. I started a hat on the red loom for practice, but haven’t finished it yet. I might rip it back and start over with 2 strands or bulkier yarn. Currently using Red Heart since it was what was available at the time. I do have several projects that I can’t wait to get started on though.
