Sometime since we last spoke about knitting or yarn goodness, I acquired this *thing*.
My husband’s best friend was at some estate sale and asked what it was, and he was told it was used to wind yarn, so he bought it for me. I had no idea what it was, so I took it to my knitting group. I was told it was a loom. Hmm, what kind of loom? So using Ravelry, I found out it was an inkle loom.
I am really wanting to use it, but have no idea how to begin. I keep thinking that I’ll have a day where I can go to the Woolery in a nearby city and have them show me what additional supplies I need and the basics, maybe even a DVD. I just can’t seem to find the free day to go!
Other things I’ve been working on….
I finished my Damson shawl but it desperately needs blocked. My problem with blocking is that I don’t have a blocking area. I only have one room with carpeting and the cats would lie on it if I block it with towels on the carpet. Any suggestions?
I started the Aestlight Shawl. In Madelinetosh sock. MMMM… let’s talk about this yarn. It’s in a “copper penny” colorway, and it is BEAUTIFUL. It does shine like a bright new penny. And the yarn is buttery and wonderful. I love this yarn. I just happened to get it while on maternity leave in a Loopy Ewe update, and I am so happy with that purchase.
