Hi all, hope everyone is having a great day, the sun has finally been shining this afternoon! YEA!!!
I am feeling better today, this has been a very wicked bug! I should be able to go to work tomorrow (: don’t ya just hate being sick on the weekend and than feel better in time for work. I spent part of this afternoon doing taxes, April 15 is tax day here in the US, I had put them off because I knew we were going to have to pay and we do! All my tax deductions grew up and moved out. Rob keeps saying we should be able to claim Weezer as a dependent, ha ha! At least he will never move out.

Anyway onto Mason Jar Covers. Yesterday after I posted about the crocheted Mason Jar Cozy Angie P. from http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Atmyhouse/
which is one of my Yahoo groups, asked me if it could be loom knit, I told her yes and that I would work one up, this is my result ( she also asked about drink cozy’s so thats what I did)

How to’s :
Loom – all in one loom from Authentic Knitting Board
Yarn – Sugar and Cream in the color Lemon-lime
Loom pick
Yarn needle
Peg markers – 6 are needed, I use tiny elastic bands

Set up your loom to knit on 36 pegs in the round. Mark peg 1 and each 6th peg around.
Using the crochet cast on, cast on to all 36 pegs
http://loomknittingblog.blogspot.com/2007/02/crochet-cast-on.html

Row 1 ewrap and knit off
Row 2 ewrap 1peg, slip next peg (take yarn behind peg to next one) repeat around, knit off
Row 3 – 15 ewrap and knit off
If you want it to cover the whole jar just keep knitting until it is tall enough. Than begin the decrease rows.

Decrease rows, I followed Kristen’s method that she uses on her Granny Rounds here it is
http://www.goodknitkisses.com/GoodKnit_Kisses/FREE_Pattern_Blog/Entries/2011/6/10_Granny_Round_-_Loom_Knit.html
Scroll down to the section called decreases and bind off.
Decrease until you have 18 pegs remaining. Bind off using the drawstring bind off, pull up and tie off. Weave in ends, slip on your jar.
I’m trying another one except with a Kiss Loom, I think I can follow the above with no chnges except use the uwrap instead of the ewrap, I’ll let ya know.

Hi all, hoping ya’ll are having a great weekend! Other than it still being very gray and cold outside and I have the ick and feel like crap, mines okay.
On Easter Rob gave me some flowers and I pulled out a handy dandy mason jar to use as a vase. I have a ton of mason jars, Rob once bought 21 cases for 10 bucks, thinking everyone in the family would want some! Guess what? Nobody did!

I’ve been thinking since than the flowers would look prettier if they were in a pretty vase. So I set out to make it prettier, starting with browsing the web and I found two that I liked, but weren’t quite what I was looking for, so I kinda made my own inspired by:
Crochet Dynamite – http://www.crochetdynamite.com/2013/01/mason-jar-covers.html
and
Attic 24 – http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2008/09/idle-hooking.html

Mason Jar Cover

Supplies:
Lily Sugar and Cream 1 skein white, 1 skein Sunny Sky ( did not use full skeins)
Size G (4.0 mm ) hook
Yarn needle
Stitch marker or scrap of yarn

Stitches used:
American Stitches used
Magic Ring – http://www.planetjune.com/blog/tutorials/magic-ring-right-handed/
Single Crochet – sc
Chain – ch
Double Crochet – dc
Round – rnd(s)
Repeat – rep
Crochet abbreviation chart can be found here:
http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/crochet.html

Starting at bottom
Note: I changed color after each round carrying the yarn not in use up the inside. My first rnd was in white and I ended with the Sunny Sky for the last rnd. I didn’t put the color changes in the following. Mark first stitch of each round if desired, move marker up each round.
Rnd 1 begin with a Magic Ring, make 6 sc in ring, pull up and tighten magic ring. Do not join rnd, you will be working in a spiral for a while. 6 stitches
Rnd. 2 Make 2 sc in each stitch around. 12 stitches
Rnd. 3 Make 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next, repeat around. 18 stitches
Rnd 4 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next 2, repeat around. 24 stitches
Rnd 5 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next 3, repeat around. 30 stitches
Rnd 6 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next 4, repeat around. Join to first stitch with a slip stitch. 36 stitches
Rnd 7 dc in joining stitch, dc in each stitch around, join with a slip stitch in first dc. 36 dc
Rnds 8-19 repeat rnd 7, finish off, weave in ends

Tie- make a chain of 100 chains, weave in ends. Weave thru last round of dc, slip on jar pull tie tight and tye in a bow.
I think the flowers look prettier now, what do you think?
