Ravelry loom-a-long group is having an open house. For the first time, needle knitters have been invited to join the loom-a-long for the Dragon Tail Scarf. It has been a lot of fun, and there is already a loom-to-needle translation of the pattern. I think that the most interesting part is seeing the scarf on needles instead of on the loom. We even have dragon name generators to help name your project. The loom-a-long runs all through November, so please drop by the open house and say hello.
Also continuing is the Diamond Lace Shawl loom-a-long, a pattern by Anne Bipes. This has been a very popular pattern, and everyone has enjoyed making it very much. As always, the Leafy Sea Dragon and Artist's Palette Shawl have their "on-going" loom-a-longs, so if you are working on those patterns, this is the place for you to share your projects, ask questions, and visit with the nice people on Ravelry.
Just off my looms is the shawl in the photo. It is a crescent shaped shawl made on the 120 peg round afghan loom in 1/2 inch gauge. The yarn is a "graduate" dyed fingering weight yarn that starts with a tweedy brown, and gradually changes into the autumn shades. I keyed the changes in the lace pattern to the changes in the yarn color. What's on your loom?
