Loom Knitting in the Summer

Loom knitting in the summer is a great project. It is so portable and so it is a great carry along project.
I pack up my pattern, yarn, tools,and Knifty Knitter in a zip lock bag to keep everything clean, and I can loom knit anywhere.
It seems like I am in the car more in the summer so I can get projects accomplished on long trips.
Christmas is right around the corner so I am working on candy canes and small ornaments for package toppers that can be hung on the tree afterward.
Check out the pattern on this site. This lady has some amazing patterns. Lots of small projects for those special occasions.
Loom Lore
She wrote a book this year about loom knitting. She is a very creative lady, and her site has tons of information. it is called I taught myself to Loom knit so you might want to check it out.

Looming but not Posting

I have been looming, crocheting, and working with my Cricut. I haven't been posting much.
Even though summer is still going strong, I need to get my list for Christmas projects, Christmas comes so fast, especially when you have a list of hand made items to do.
Right now I am working on crocheted shawl in turquoise trimmed in black and turquoise, a black and gold brimmed hat(Pittsburgh colors, a black hat with gold beads,and an afghan. I am loom knitting the two hats, I love to do them on the looms, they come out so beautiful and they work up fast.
Well, let me get back to work, actually crafting.

Loom Knitting Blog

I admire Brenda,she creates so many wonderful patterns for loom knitting and she shares her knowledge and expertise with her fellow loom knitters. On her blog there is something for everyone in different levels of expertise. My hat goes off to you. I love your creativity, and I love going to your blog to see what's new.

Cable Bag

I would love to try a cable bag with some Lion Brand Wool Ease yarn I have.
It is a Deep Rose color, a color I love. The handles I chose are glossy black. I have loom knitted a cabled scarf but i have not tried a bag yet. I'm fairly confident that I can make the bag but there always seems to be some other project taking up my time.

I have had this pattern for awhile, so I hope to make this soon.

Hopefully, I will find time to make this bag for next winter.

Learning Loom Knitting

I walked into Joann Fabrics about 2 years ago. A lady was loom knitting with a Provocraft Knifty Knitter. She was demonstrating some stitchers and showed some of her beautiful projects,she had made her niece a shawl for prom and matching slippers for sore feet.
I have never learned to knit, but I love to crochet. This fascinated me. It looked easy and the projects were very nice.
I bought the Knifty Knitter set and researched Loom Knitting on the web and found great information and several groups who were also loom Knitting.
I have progressed since then I have purchased several other looms and several books and made projects from simple scarves to more intricate cable knit projects,
I am glad I stopped at the loom Knitting demo.
