Hi there! It’s time to talk about the loom alongs that started this month 🙂
In the Loom Along group on Ravelry, for the basic loom along, we’ll still be working on Loom Knit Kitties and Loom Knit Bunnies. The bunny and kitty are cute, little soft toys and would make fun gifts for Easter or a special little someone’s birthday.
Also in the Loom Along group, we just started up a new Purchased Pattern LAL. During the months of April and May, we’ll be working on the Pinwheel Baby Blanket pattern by Denise Layman. Denise’s pattern teaches you how to make the pinwheel blanket and also includes a fun sawtooth edging to accentuate the pinwheel center.
In the Loom Knitter’s Circle group on Ravelry, we started up a new Loomin’ in the Archives LAL. This month, we’ll be working on the Market Tote by Norma Cooper from the Summer 2007 issue of Loom Knitter’s Circle magazine. ‘Go Green’ with this project and cut down on your reliance on plastic bags. Perfect timing with this project since Earth Day is just around the corner 😉 ETA: I’ve also set this one up as an event in the LKC group on facebook so pick your favorite place to play and come loom along.
Last, but definitely not least, an exciting chance to learn how to loom knit socks. Our fabulous moderator in the Loomin’ Socks group has been putting together a SAL (Sock Along) to help loom knitters learn to make socks on their knitting looms. They are beginning with a mini sock, then will progress to a pair of full size socks. If you’ve ever wanted to loom knit socks, hop on over to the Loomin’ Socks group and join in on the fun.
And that wraps up all of the Loom Alongs that I happen to know about. Pick a project (or two, or three) and get ready to have a great time. Happy Loom Knitting!
