Hello, dear readers :)
We are feeling much better today (thank goodness).
Now we have to deal with the heat!
Rather feeling the heat than feeling ill, right?
Okay, you know I had to make a trip to Hobby Lobby for another skein of yarn for my baby blanket and then saw extensions for my knitting loom.
The light bulb went on so I just had to buy them.
I've never tried my hand at "weaving" so I gave it a try.
This loom I'm using is the Authentic Knitting Board Loom 28" size with 10" extenders on each side. I'm using a full board and a DK wool for the base with a fingering weight strand of orange every 8 rows. I'm playing with a 1:1 basket weave and reversing it on the second row. I've also added fringe as I'm working the rows as I go along.
The only thing that is a drawback that I really don't want a 10" wide scarf, but for the moment it would do. A 5" extension would be wonderful and a perfect width.
So, dear readers, I'm going to play with this for a while.
Need to come up with some more weaving patterns.
I think that you could become very creative with this wonderful tool !
Let's hope :)
