Hi all, hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! Mine was pretty good I had the pleasure of relaxing with my crochet and loom knitting pretty much all day! I worked on my Tunisian Wingspan, I am on triangle 6 only 2 more to go! I also worked on some more hexipuffs, I got 4 more done and I wound 20 balls of yarn in preparation for a Granny Blanket, I really want one for my queen size bed just not sure I will stick with it. It was a really nice day to just relax and do what I wanted, in the evening we made steak, baked potatoes and corn on the cob all cooked on the grill and Rob set off some very loud fireworks! Recently I completed a loomed jar cover, a hot water bottle cover and a pair of slippers.

Good morning all, I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. Mine has been pretty good, this afternoon I will be going to the movies ( I haven’t been in a couple of years) I am going with the kids and we are seeing Star Trek Into Darkness http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1408101/ it should be fun.

Lately I have been having a lot of pain in my right hand especially if I crochet, so I am taking a little break from it and have been loom knitting lately. The project I chose is the lovely Wingspan Shawl. This shawl has a pattern available for needle knitting ( original ) one for loom knitting and one also in tunisian crochet. It was offered as a class last year in LoomClass http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LoomClass/?yguid=219940051 and I didn’t have time to make it then. Later I came across the tunisian version and wanted to try that too. I have the pattern and will try it in the future when my hand problem is gone. Here are links to all 3 versions

Hope ya’ll have a great rest of the weekend

Yarn balls or Yarn cakes

Hi all hope you had a great Monday! Mine was pretty good, I am having a short week I am going to be off on Friday to attend Grandparents day at Molly’s school. should be fun.
I was thinking earlier as I was winding off a ball of yarn from a large skein what do other people prefer. I have this electric yarn winder and it makes the cakes of yarn. I don’t like it much the cakes are wound loosely and especially when I get near the end of a cake the yarn tangles as it comes off the ball and I really really like using a hand wound ball of yarn. I like how easily the yarn comes off the ball. There is also something very relaxing about winding a ball of yarn it is kinda soothing. I wind most of my yarn into smaller balls, these are some of my leftovers

I think they are easier to take with you and very rarely does it get tangled. A couple of weeks ago I tried winding a center pull ball by hand and really liked it, so I might invest in a nostepinne I used these instructionswhen I tried it I used a ruler and it worked fine. What is your preference cakes or balls? Ya’ll have a great week!!!

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, 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!
