Baby Cocoon/Hat Set ... Alpaca Yarn

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
 Have I said latley that I LOVE LOOM KNITTING!!I am so excited about this set...I purchased this yarn at one of the yarn stores I visited last week...I couldn't wait to make this cocoon/hat set with this yarn.  It is wonderful yarn... I love first Alpaca yarn... I love the colors.  This store that I found grown their own alpacas and then spins and dies their yarns... I think I am hooked...which is a bad thing... I believe that I am slowly becoming a yarn snob... this could get expensive! Thanks for looking! ~Hugs, Jeannie

Ruffle Scarf!!

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips
I got this in my head a few nights ago...then I found a couple of yarn stores about 40 minutes away and had a chance to go and check them out.  One of the ladies, a needle knitter was so helpful...and encouraging about my looming.  I told here that I wanted to make the ruffle and how I had it in my head...she told me I was on the right track and gave me a couple of pointers...well I put a few projects on hold to try this with my new yarn... this is my progress.... but now I have to stop and make a few items that I have promised.  I am beyond excited about this scarf!!...Thank you so much for looking!  Hugs, Jeannie

Baby Cocoon & Matching Hat

Handmade Design by

I know this one looks a lot like the first one that I made...but the stitch is different...this stitch is a Single Moss Stitch... I love the diamond shape that you can really see in the hat which was knit on a smaller gauge loom.  My aunt ask me to make it for my cousin for her.  I hope they both love it. I loved making it!!  Thank you so much for looking!!  Hugs, Jeannie

Scarf and Toboggan for my brother!

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips
This is for my brother, Jamie. He is a Fireman and he ask for these... the black and the stripe is a fireman thing... The scarf took me 3 days...and I knitted lots and lots and lots...the scarf has around 11088 stitches + /- a few... the scarf is 6 feet long and 7 inches wide. I am really proud at how it turned out. I used my Purple KK Loom on both.  The red stripe in the hat is knitted in... the red stripes in the scarf were added after I finish....and re-added then I know the trick. I hope Jamie love this...because I love my brother so much!

I have had them on my looms a few days until I could get their measurements today... now I am worried about the height...but it falls under the heights of youth hats... the green and cream hat I made on my youth size DaLooms loom and the (cross your fingers its big enough).  The black hat I made on my Purplep KK round loom.  I used three strands of #4 yarn on it... love how bulkey this was... I did the Double Moss Stitch on this hat it is so think and warm.. I am really proud of them both... I will be gald when I get more experience under my belt and don't worry so much that I have the fit right.  Thank you so much for looking!!  Hugs, Jeannie

Baby Cocoon w/ matching Toboggan

Handmade Designs by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
I have been busy though you can't tell in pictures because I have two hats on looms waiting to get measurements for the height so I will have a perfect fit... Hope to finish those Monday!!  I am excited about this set.. the stitches on the hat match the stitches on the cocoon except that I used a finer gauge loom for the hat.  This set is for a baby shower gift for a young lady at our Church... I hope that she loves it... I think babies are so sweet in them...and they make wonderful picture props... They think the baby is a boy... but I wasn't sure so I went with the white.
