On and Off the Loom

 Lots of different projects over the past month for my looms. The first photo shows a Wingspan made for the Loom Class group. (One more week, you can still join us.) This Wingspan was made on the new AKB all-in-one loom, from 1 skein of Mini Mochi fingering yarn in Neptune. Love the pegs on the loom, and the fabric, but the smaller gauge made a very small Wingspan. A better choice would be the Martha Stewart loom using small pegs, with a far greater number of pegs. The AKB will be a great loom for smaller projects, and I'm hoping they will add the option of additional side extension pieces to increase the number of pegs.
 The second photo shows a round baby blanket made for the Ravelry loom-a-long, going on through May. This was made from Cottontots yarn in Sweet Cream, with the crochet ruffle edging done in Dollhouse. I used the Provocraft ergonomic crochet hook for the edging, and found it a great improvement, even over my usual padded hooks.
The last photo shows some modular samples I am working on, possibly for a new collection of patterns. The little facecloths look like 4 mitered squares, but they are actually made all in a single piece, with no decreasing or increasing, no moving the loops. What's on your loom?

  1. Your projects are lovely, Renee! The Wingspan has been a great success on LoomClass and you are a terrific teacher! I love those little mitered squares! I can't wait to see how you make those.
