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.
