Waves of Lace Shawl

Well, I haven’t worked on anything this week other than the Waves of Lace Shawl designed by Lisa Sawyer. This stitch is fantastic and it is turning out so beautiful! I’m about half way done. I am using Sinfonia yarn, which is very easy to work with. The picture below is a close up. Check out that stitch! WOW!!!

The looms keep saying “Knit something on me!”

I remember when I was a little kid, and we would have a nice Sunday dinner. There was this game I played with the food, for example: a kernel of corn that would be off to the side on my plate. I imagined it saying “eat me next!” I have the hips to prove that I have played that game for far too long! LOL

Well, my friends, my looms are speaking to me too! “Knit something on me next!”

My house has been invaded! Nary a corner does not contain a loom with a project started on it. How can one just have one project started? I’ll never know.

For instance, one loom has a afghan started…this project will take some time…not something that will be finished in a day or so.

Another loom has a rug started, a fun project, but the yarn can annoy the fingers after too much knitting.

Both these projects are long term projects, on longer looms.Rug in Progress

Two looms have poncho’s started. I ran out of yarn for the first poncho and had to order a couple more skeins. Yes! It’s true! I ran out of yarn!!! The second loom holds a poncho that I am using different stitches I’ve learned. So it is experimental and I often forget what I am doing on it! LOL

Bohemian Poncho needs yarn!

 

 

This loom holds an experimental purse I am making.

The yarn on this loom also tends to annoy the fingers, so must be done in small groups of time.

A set of small looms are being used to make Easter bunny’s and Easter eggs. Just quick for fun things.

The set of small looms in my car are there for emergency knitting situations! LOL

There is a set of knifty knitters, a five foot loom and a set of sock looms. All are just staring at me and I know they are wondering why they aren’t being utilized. I am certain that I will ease their pain soon!

Not to mention the items that I’ve taken off the loom, but have not quite completed. Several purses that need to be lined, a couple of scarves that need to have fringe added. Oh! and the unfinished, different sized mittens….those can wait till next winter!

What to start on first? Oh! I bought this amazing shawl pattern…maybe I’ll start there!

Knit on!!

Felted Carmelita Bag

I finished the felted Carmelita bag. I think its beautiful! This bag was designed by Isela Phelps and she taught a class on how to make it on a yahoo loom class website. You can find that site here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LoomClass/

Felted Carmelita Bag

Off the loom 03/19/7

I finished the following this past week!

 

 

First up is a purse I invented by mistake! Using Moda-dea Cache #788 yarn, I used figure eight cast on, then the double sided stockinette stitch on a 30″ loom I purchased on ebay from Craftmainia. I made a piece of ten rows to make the decorative flap, then stitched it all together. I love the way it turned out!Cache Purse

 

Next, I have a bangle bag (pattern is from “Learn to Knit on Circle Looms” book.” This is a fun and quick pattern, I will make many more!

 

Bangle Bag

Next up is another experiment bag I came up with using Bernat Bling bling yarn and green KK.

This bag is almost completed! It is from loom class. Isela’s carmelita bag. I was so excited to receive my AJAL loom so that I could make this bag! I need to cast off, and make the icord handle. Then the scary part, felting it. I just don’t have the nerve to felt it yet! LOL

Carmelita Bag

Because I am new to felting, and its scary, I decided to make a small basket to felt with the same Noro Kureyon yarn that the Carmelita bag is made out of and felt it first. Here is a picture before felting. Oh I hope it looks this good when it is felted!

Not yet felted basket

And last but not least, a cell phone bag for the trade on yahoo group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/loomknittingexchange/

 

Just off the loom

This satchel is adorable. I will add an icord handle and make it a small purse.

The pattern was designed by Isela Phelps. She is amazing! If you want to learn to loom knit, Isela’s website should be your first stop! You can get the pattern from Isela’s website at: http://loomknit.com/patterns.html

Headband

I was messing around with learning new stitches, and made this cute headband. It is easy to make, just knit as you were knitting a hat, turn up the brim, and crochet off. Then I added a piece of ribbon yarn for decoration. Cute!

Poncho is completed!

This was such a fun project! I love the way it turned out! I’ll be making more of these for sure! The pattern I used was a free pattern, you can find it at: http://loominglaura.typepad.com/loompatterns

I used Yarn Bee Icelandic Jewels, Dark Citrine yarn. I got a great deal on the yarn from Hobby Lobby. Yarn is usually $5.84 a skein, and the sale was for .99 a skein!!! I love yarn sales!!
