1st blanket project for 2015

IMG_8623Once upon a time (a couple years ago), I bought an S-loom. It’s a big beautiful sturdy knitting loom. I haven’t used it yet. My Bff has one and keeps it constantly loaded making luscious blankets for her grandbabes. She has a wonderful talent using the knitting looms. She has oodles of different looms and has made some awesome stuff with them. I’ve made a few items with my Martha Stewart & Knifty Knitter looms, but nothing on my S-loom. I decided to finally use the s-loom and see if I can make a pretty blanket for My 1st blanket project of 2015.
IMG_8600-1I bought lots of Lion Brand Homespun yarn.
I’ve un-boxed my S-loom.
I got the cast-on row cast on.
Now, I’m ready to start the project.
I plan to post updates as I go along.
Wish me luck.

Wishing you all great joy & success with
your crafts & projects all through the year.
Happy 2015!

My hobby seems to be collecting hobbies and crafts. There's so many things to make and do that I can't focus on one single one for very long at a time. I blog to share my latest craft or thoughts with folks and hopefully get their thoughts and suggestions too.

  1. Oooh….I LOVE the color of that yarn! And it looks so soft. I just know that’s going to make a scrumptious blanket. Looking forward to seeing your progress! Happy New Year, E.C.!

    1. Thanks Dianna
      The yarn is deliciously soft, the kind you can snuggle down in with a good book on a cold winters day. My Bff loves this kind of yarn (and so does her grandbabes).
      I hope I can get this baby rolling and my progress reports will be productive ones.
      Happy New Year! 🙂

    1. Hey Nadine,
      Aw cool. What type of looms did you get? Once I got the hang of the knitting looms I found them quite enjoyable to make things with.
      Youtube is my go-to place when I want to learn a new technique or method. It’s been a very helpful resource. There’s is videos on how to do just about every part of loom knitting.
      To begin: Go to youtube and look for ‘casting on’.
      To end: When you finish a piece then go to youtube and search for ‘binding off’.
      Also, there’s oodles of videos on how to do the stitches.
      My favorite stitch is an ‘e wrap’.
      I hope you’ll post your progress.
      I wish you much luck and good knitting.
      🙂

    1. Hi Oh Sew Tempting
      Welcome to my blog.
      I really like this loom. Thankfully, I’m finding it easier to use than I thought it’d be. Hopefully I’ll have a fair amount of progress to post next week.
      Thanks so much for visiting and leaving me a happy comment.
      I hope you’ll visit again sometime.
      Happy New Year! 🙂
