Remember that tangled, ugly, totally messed up warp I had on my Beka loom awhile back? Well, I finally got the warp on properly. Thanks to Beka, I now have instructions for the loom. I had the loom totally put together incorrectly! It sure works a lot better when set up properly!
Score! Kirkwood Knittery, a LYS here in my area had an unbelievable sale…they had an entire bookcase of yarn discounted to one dollar a skein, YES!!!! $1.00!! !! I am using Brown Sheep Nature Spun, Mountain Purple for the warp. The weft has two yarns, Brown Sheep Nature Spun, Beet Red and Prisma mohar. These are three of the yarns that were in the dollar bin! I was good, I only purchased 15 skeins of yarn….but as I drove away, I could hear a voice telling me “Woman, you should have at LEAST bought 30 skeins at that price!”My fingers are pretty much raw after a week of working on Absorba, the great bathmat, from Mason Dixon Knitting. I am using Sugar n Cream cotton yarn, potpourri ombre. The bathmat is knit log cabin style with 3 strands held together, which means 6 strands total are on each peg on the loom. I am making the bathmat larger than the pattern dimensions called for.
Hubby and I are off to Eureka Springs, AK for a 5 day vacation this week! We’ve never been there, but I’ve been told I will love it! It is a little Victorian town, with lots of shops located in the beautiful Ozark mountains.
