Cowl/Infinity Scarf

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
I had enough of this yarn left over from one of my weaving projects to make a cowl... I was in the mood to knit on Saturday.... and this yarn was in sight... I think it was a meant to be... because it turned out so pretty... It is really soft too... and so simple to make...I did it on the largest round Knifty Knitter loom and just did the e-wrap stitch... I did do a loose bind off.... It is the perfect length and really fancies up a simple sweater or turtle neck.  Thank you for looking!  Hugs, Jeannie

Knifty Knitter Scarf

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
I was excited at how this scarf turned out...I had wanted to do something like this with this yarn and didn't think I had enough...and wasn't quite sure how to get the look that I wanted... and I had thought I would not have enough yarn to get the length of a scarf...well after 2 woven scarves I still ended up with enough yarn to make a scarf.. too exciting.  I wanted a really loose stitch to show off my hand spun yarn... I used the purple round Knifty Knitter... knitted on a flat panel... I used every other peg....I did a row of k and row of p and a row of k...after my ewrap cast on... then I added the next color (orange ) and did a row of it in e-wrap... left that working strand at the end of the row... the I did a row of p a row of k and a row of p... picked up the orange working yarn... and did a row of ewrap until I reached my desired length.  I really like the loose stitch for hand spun yarn.  Thank you for looking!  Hugs~ Jeannie

Shades of Orange... A Handwoven Scarf

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
I had fun making this.. used three of my 4 heddles this time...those are the bars that hold the stings that lift the threads that make the design.... I was playing around not sure what exactly I would end up with... but am happy with the outcome... I have a few mistakes... but as I always told my kids  "a mistake is only a mistake if you don't learn something" and I am learning so much!!... this scarf has in it some of my very own hand spun, hand dyed yarns... how fun is that... My next venture is a Tri Loom... Robby is going to build me one and I am just too excited!!...This is going to be a door prize at a dinner at Church... hope it is well received!!... thank you so much for looking!  Hugs, Jeannie

Handmade by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
A String of Stitches... I love this.. it is like a long string of purls... there are endless ways to ware it... I thought I would whip it up in a day or two... but it took a while.. working on it on and off.. I made it on my fine gauge loom with tiny sock yarn... it is 24 feet long!!..I don't even want to know how many stitches it has!!...I think I am going to love it! would be pretty is an off white color...It is not my design..I have seen it done by several wonderful knitters!!

Handwoven Scarf Orange and Blue

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
I am loving my new weaving loom... I have lots to learn making the starting end the same size as the ending end... and I did something to the last few rows that make the weaving look a little bit different... not sure what... I get in a hurry when I am almost done!!.. I think I will get Robby to add another bar so I can make things just a bit longer... thank you for looking!! Hugs, Jeannie

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
Weaving Loom Built by
Robby Phillips ~ Southside, Al
My son, John-Robert and I went to Gatlinburg for his Spring Break...I got to see a weaving loom in person and play with it a little bit... came home with the idea how to build one in my head... Robby and I talked through it and got it all figured out...and that sweet husband of mine made me one yesterday (Saturday).  Here is my first creation on it... I used some of my hand spun yarn...some ribbon and some store bought fuzzy and eyelash yarns... So excited with how this turned out!  Thank you so much for looking! Hugs, Jeannie

Summer Scarf/Belt

Handmade Designs by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
This is a Summer Scarf/Belt that I made on my Fine Gauge DaLooms Loom... I used a stitch that I created myself on the looms....I used it before on a prayer shawl on a larger loom... it looks so different here...but I love the effect. The prayer shawl was larger but this took much longer. Thanks for looking!!
I have a mistake in this one...and it ended up in my picture... Can you find it?

Also I have been spinning lots... and I am getting better every day!...It is so much fun... I hope to make a new hat next week all out of my own yarn!
Hugs Everybody~ Jeannie

Handmade Toboggan with New Stitch and Hand-spun Yarn.

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
I am excited about this hat....I wanted something different... when it came to me how to add random pieces of  yarn and make them stand out I put down what I was working on and got to work on this hat. I also wanted a way to showcase my hand spun yarn... the pink in the hat is yarn I purchased the other is MY VERY OWN YARN   I added a Vertical Drop Stitch that I taught myself how to do on a loom...I had seen it done on needles and went "oh I know how to do this on a loom."  Then I did!!... talk about excited!! I also watched a video today on a Crossed Stockinette is a simple you knit one peg and ewrap the next...I like the uneven look it gives.  I know there is a name for how this hat looks but I can't think of it... I am really excited at how it turned out!! I used my purple round Knifty Knitter.... I love, love loom knitting!!

Hand Spun Yarn by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside
Wanted to share my 2 plied yarn and some more yarn that I started spinning today.  Today was a wonderful spinning day... it all just came together... I was drafting and spinning all at the same time.... my wheel was going in the right direction ..... I was stopping the wheel anytime I needed to... I had a few adjustments to make but I was able to make them... the blue yarn in the picture is bulky yarn...this new yarn is much finer...I think when it's 2 plied it is going to be more of a worsted weight... Spinning is so so much fun!..I am loving it!
