Loom up

Last night I met up with some of my former loom students to show them the new looms and other great products I received at the CHA.
One of my students went home and told her husband how much she loved the all n one loom and ordered that night!!

AllNOne Click the link to see the loom everyone is the most excited about. in the photo you can see it on the table,

I love it because as the name suggests it's truly an all in one. You can double knit and adjust the width or you can knit flat.  in the next few weeks I will write and film a full review on it.  I also have the Tadpole which is great because it's portable and small ( it also has great instructions) and the sock loom. I have used sock looms before where the grooves were not big enough and that made me hate making socks! This one like all the looms I can tell is made better so be on the look out as soon as I get sock yarn for a sock photos!!!
I also have the Afghan Loom being shipped to me and I am super excited to try it! I got to hold one at the CHA and I loved how light it was.  Do you have any of the looms I mentioned and are you interested in learning more about looming?

They talked me into arm knitting and were amazed at how quickly you can make a scarf or cowl! I recommend using 4 bulky strands at once in this photo i just grabbed what i had in my bag which was 2 4ply and 2 bulky.

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
