I actually finished this on Monday. I was waiting on my medal . Which have not been passed out yet 😦

This is the Loom Knit Ridges Cowl I made for the Ravelry Ravellenics . Event : Cowl Jump

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! 🙂

A Year of Projects

YOP6 week 6

Another week another project.

The Rio Olympics started on Friday and so did the Ravellenics on Ravelry. I casted on about 8pm. As of this post I am almost done with my first project.. Loom Knit Ridges Cowl.

Lots of pegs to knit and purl. Once I got back in the flow , the the repeats just flew by.  Hopefully I can finish this by tonight.

My Ravellenic Games Schedule

The games start on Friday August 5th. Cast on starts when the Olympics in Rio begin. Well we can all enjoy the Opening Ceremony then cast on 🙂

Like I’ve said in a previous post my goal is to make at least 3 projects. But I have 6 project pages queued up. My looms are set up . My yarn is ready and the patterns are downloaded onto my kindle or the pattern page is  bookmarked.

Friday through Sunday I will be working on the Loom kit Ridges Cowl.

Monday I will take  a break.

Tuesday through Friday I will be working on the Falling Leaves Cowl. That cowl looks like it will take more time to finish and since I haven’t loomed in a while I am a little rusty. And probably in between the cowls I will be looming up some socks. Jon needs a new pair for the winter so I thought I would make him a pair of Kabel-Wijn Sock Boot.

And for the last week I hope to have time for the Fairies have Boots cowl .

GO TEAM LOOMINESCENT!!!

Loom Love

Knitting WITHOUT Needles

Yes it can be done 🙂

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 Gagen . Its called French Knitting .

My first projects was a really long I-Cord. It was like 7 feet long 🙂 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 🙂

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

Wish me luck.

See you in Rio!!!
