July Looming

 I wanted to share some recent projects with you. The first photo is my loomed version of the "B-4" felted bag. This was such fun to make, and was my main project for the Looms in Bloom Challenge in the Ravelry Loom Knitters group. The four "b"s are baubles, bumps, buttons and beads. The bag was made on a 90 peg CinDwood loom in 1/2 inch gauge.
 The second photo is a summer weight Mostly Harmless Scarf. I made this from crochet cotton in a light fingering weight on a 3/8 inch gauge loom. There are pink glass beads added at each point and along the long cast off edge.
Another Looms in Bloom project, in the third photo, a pair of Little Kitten Mitts with the addition of a small ruffle on the wrist. These were made from a cotton-alpaca blend yarn.
This fourth photo shows a prototype for a lace jacket panel pattern I'm working on. This first one is a small, rough version done in kitchen cotton. The pattern will adjust to fit different sized jacket panels. 

There are some great Loom-a-longs happening this month. Continuing from June, the Silky Shawl Theme loom-a-long. Come and see all the beautiful shawls, even if you aren't going to join the loom-a-long. The yarn, patterns and colors are all beautiful. This is a choose you own pattern loom-a-long. I'm working on a Rosebud Lace shawl in a pink alpaca silk yarn. 
The July loom-a-long is a lovely Waffle Stitch baby afghan. The pattern is not difficult, and everyone is enjoying making a little afghan. I hope you'll be able to join a loom-a-long.
