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.


  1. So much fun! I've been loving arm knitting lately too :)

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook. Make a magic circle Round 1 Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join. Sides and top of cross Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here
