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.
