Loom Love, WIPS

WIP Wednesday

I am looming again. Its fast and easy. oh and fun!

I bought more yarn. This is called Premier Yarns Saturate in the color Zinnia. Its from the Deborah Norville Collection.

I love this yarn!! This is the third skein I’ve bought in the past week. Different color though. Although this yarn did have a few knots in the beginning I was able to get around them. I pray there are no more.

I wanted to knit something so I chose to make a drop stitch cowl. No pattern. Just a few rows of Β garter stitch and then the drop stitch and some purls and e wraps and more drop stitches. I only have 3 rows of the Β dropped stitches and I want to make at least 6. I hope I have enough yarn.

I had a few issues with it . The cast on edge was too loose. But my team helped me out with that with a video by Purling Sprite. And I washed it which fixed the top and bottom curl.

Looming is so fun! πŸ™‚

Knitting WITHOUT Needles

Yes it can be done πŸ™‚

My love obsession with yarn started with looming. My first “loom” was made with a TP tube and popsicle sticks. I learned this awesome craft from Cynthia GagenΒ . Its called French KnittingΒ .

My first projects was a really long I-Cord. It was like 7 feet long πŸ™‚ I just loved e-wrapping.

Anyway , with the Ravellenic Games coming up( Rio Baby!!) I thought I would join a looming team. The first team I joined in 2012 actually. Team Loominescent.I finished a lot of projects in 2012. I have 4 queued up as of right now. Maybe I will add one more ( like I need more projects) .

I haven’t played with my looms in a little while so I am a little rusty and my looms are a bit dusty πŸ™‚

My goal is to finish least 3 projects. Ballerina baby socks., Loom knit Ridges Cowl, and Growing Leaves Cowl. Β If I have time, Loom Knitted braid headband.

Wish me luck.

See you in Rio!!!
