Here are a few things that I have been working on... I have had several things going on at once and got a couple of them finished.... Will tell you a little about each one.
This yarn in this tri loom scarf inspired me to get some things finished so I could play with my new yarn. My daughter, Madison and my son-in-law, Cory took me to this amazing yarn store, Yarnation in Memphis when we visited for Mother's day. They had me a gift certificate so I got to splurge on some amazing yarn.. this is my first creation...and I have some of this yarn left over!!... so excited at how this turned out! I did a first on this one... I made twisted fringe... I love how it looks..but boy on boy it takes a while.. the fringe itself took about 5 hours... .Hugs Jeannie
I saw a scarf like this in a spinning magazine...I actually tired to do it on needles... but I had to go back to my wonderful looms... love my looms...I did this one on one of my KK... I love the look of the thin and thick yarn... I was really proud that I could accomplish this look... I am learning all the time... I love learning new things.
I did this on my rectangle weaving loom... inspired by the scarf above to try the thick and thin yarn in a different way. Instead of weaving diagonally I tried running the thick yarn horizontally and the thin yarn vertically. It was great to use left over yarns in a new and creative way. My husband really loves this scarf... it is a good and different masculine scarf. Thank you so much for looking! Hugs Jeannie
