Finished projects for March

Well since half the month of March is almost gone, I thought I’d better post something.  I have been working on various Prairie Bootsitems, both needle and loom knit.  Someone posted on one of the yahoo groups about this cute pattern for Prairie Boots…I couldn’t resist and bought the pattern.  I knitted them up first in Bernat Softee Chunky before I made some in the Alpaca Blend yarn I bought to see how it would turn out.  It was also my first time knitting in the round using 2 circular needles, a lot easier than using DPNs.  I’ve got a design in mind for the loom for making boots similar to these….keep an eye out for them. 🙂

Cell phone - closedcell phone openMy mom asked me to make her a case for her cell phone so she could find it in her purse.  At the time I did this pattern I was (and still am) into cables and fell in love with the look of this pattern from Coats and Clark.   I think you could easily either convert this to the loom or make up your own design using cables for the loom.  I think the next one I make, for me, will have a button on one side of the strap so I can button it around the strap of my bag (got to get one first LOL), that way it will be more accessible. 

Bunnies in LoveBunnies in love-plainNow that the March Loom -A-Long on Ravelry’s Loomin Dishcloths is well underway and other’s have posted their way cute cloths, I will post the one I test knit for Karen (see last post)  It was fund and a great way to get into using intarsia.  I even learned how to make center pull bobbins which was a lot easier than using my makeshift bobbins.  I also did it in just plain knit and purl stitches in case others wanted to knit if up that way. 

Hope to have a few more things done to post before the month is over.   I should have plent of time looming in the car on our way to Arizona.  I will try to post pictures of our trip for those who might be interested.  I am hoping to stop and see Lynn Markman and possible Lisa Anderson.  We will be gone for about 3 weeks.  Should be interesting and fun at the same time.  We leave on Easter Sunday!  I can hardly wait for warm weather!!!

On another note….I now have all my patterns on my website.  Check it out!  Give suggestions, etc.  Talk to you all later!


Bag, tote and turkeys?

It is starting to definitely look like spring around here now. The crocus are up and my tulips and daffodils are starting to peek through the dirt. I can’t wait. Warm weather is just around the corner! I was driving up our driveway this morning after going to an early morning appointment and saw the wild turkeys we hear every morning in our neighbors yard. I ran in to get the camera and got a picture of them. It’s not a great picture albeit, but I at least got a picture and there is about 9-12 of them. They’re HUGE!!

For Loom Class Graciela taught us her Ribbon Bag. I think it took me no more than 2 hours, if that, to create it. It turned out cute, I’m just trying to figure out now what to put in it. I’m sure I’ll find something. Thanks Graciela!

I am also making more stitch markers I’ll post them as I have time. I have been frantically trying to come up with things for our monthly KALs on Loom Knitting Exchange. Monday we started our first one but I can’t reveal yet as to what it is. I will post a pic as soon as I have it finished and the posting of the KAL is over. Speaking of Loom Knitting Exchange, we had a cell phone tote exchange and this is what I came up with for Tamara. It (I hope) will fit a basic Nokia style phone. She will be able to see who is calling by just flipping up the top cover and she doesn’t even have to take off the tote to recharge as it has a opening on the bottom for that. Pretty Cool huh?? Take a look.
