I really haven’t been doing much loom knitting, the only thing I am working on is the Bee Bopper bag from Lion Brand.
I joined the monthly LAL group on Ravelry and this is the project for January. I still need to cast on my Bernadine Sweater
I seem to be inspired by crochet right now the new issue of Loom Knitters Circle Magazine comes out tomorrow, I am hoping to find some looming inspiration in it. Here’s a link
. This afternoon I am working on these cute marshmallow easter bunnies. Crochet pattern is by Doni Spiegle
They re very quick and easy and so cute. For the eyes and mouth I made french knots using bedspread cotton instead of beads as I am probably giving them to my babies at work.

Last weekend after I had put away all the Christmas decorations, I could not find the coaster set that I normally use, I had put it away while using the Christmas set that my Sister Helen had made for me a few years ago. Rob went to set his glass on the table and wanted to know where his “doily” was. Too funny I thought. since I couldn’t find the other set I sat down to crochet Rob a new “doily” Sunday afternoon I used a free pattern from Doni Speigle that I found on Ravelry
it is called Springtime Coasters. I used peaches and cream yarn in the color Sea Mist and I Love this Cotton from Hobby Lobby in White Spark.
I am pleased with them. I made 4 but took 2 to work before I took a picture.


The other night I tried a new recipe for pork chops. I found the recipe on AllRecipes
It was delicious, really more a stew than soup, Rob really liked it. I made it according to the intstructions except I used green beans instead of broccoli, I just added them at the end.
I find it frustrating when I read a review on a recipe and the reviewer changed a a bunch of stuff, to my thinking a review should reflect the true recipe not something that has been changed so much the person has created a new recipe.
Dislaimer, it is getting late here and my photos seem to be in the wrong spots, forgive me I will fix it tomorrow.

Hi all, the first week of the year has been very busy! I haven’t had much chance to work on much of anything so far. Today I got some stuff done around the house, have done laundry and worked a bit on my CDA classes that started Thursday. I am also teaching the Bernadine Sweater in Loom Class I plan to cast on mine later this evening. For this one I will be using Wool of the Andes
From Knitpicks in colors hyacinth and lake ice heather, this one will be for Chloe.
A while back I purchased the Martha Stewart Knit and Weave Loom, I haven’t been real impressed with it for knitting the pegs have a tendency to come out of the holes as you knit. This morning someone sent a link to one of my loom groups about weaving a heart with it, the video is by Noreen Crone Findley on her Tottie talks Blog I thought it was so cool I had to give it a try. The video is very well done and I really enjoyed making it. I used Lion Brand Thick and Quick in the color oatmeal. I think it turned out great. What do you think?

I will be making more of these, it was a really quick project. Have a great weekend!

Hi all hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. I did, All the kids were here except Nick and his family. Molly and Chloe loved there dolls. Unfortunately I only got a picture of Molly with hers.

I used a needle knit pattern for the doll sweater that can be found here bernadine Sweater
Heres a close up of the sweater


I used a small gauge compact Kiss Loom
I will be teaching the Sweater in Loom Class for the month of January.

I received a Nook for Christmas from Tim and Sam and I love it!!! I had to make a cozy for it immediately and found a free crochet pattern on this blog

I think it turned out pretty good


I also got a Baby Go Fabric Cutter from Accuquilt and Love it! After I openned it I was explaining what it was for and my 10 year old grandson immediately put in a request for a quilt!
