Looming around and some crochet too!

My daughter Mina made herself a small bag to put her gameboy and games inside. She likes knitting on the loom. She started Wednesday and finished Thursday.

Learning to double knit on this purple loom is fun and contagious. I figure I would knit myself a scarf for cold evenings.

The round looms are my favorite looms. These are flexible and feel soft on my hands. I had to order 2 more knitting tools because I lost the first one.

I need a poncho really bad. I made one for my two girls and didn't make one for myself yet. This is a no pattern granny square poncho. I just need to make 2 more panels, stitch together and done.

Loom Knitting!

I am finally back with some new inspiration for myself. I started knitting again. I have left off my projects and didn't do anything for a while. But now I am back again. Finally. I needed some stress release. I am continuing 3 projects. A hat, one sock and a poncho. Boy do I feel better now.

I have a new love! Loom Knitting. This is so much fun. I am making myself a scarf with a hood. I am using a 19" long loom. This double knitting is so so beautiful. I am going to add some pics of it as soon as I recharge my batteries. I didn't know that there are so many forms of loom knitting. And you actually can knit everything on a loom like knitting needles. (I love my Addis though!) Its great. I came upon a website called Click on the title of my post "Loom Knitting!" and it will take you to the website. Please, anyone interested in Loom Knitting, go to this site. It has mini videos of stitches, free patterns and links to buy looms and other notions.

I finally have a weight loss ticker. Yes. To date I have lost 23 pounds. My goal is to loose 40 pounds by June. How have I been doing it? Brisk Walking, Aerobic exercise and eating right.
