This past spring/summer I had the opportunity to work on a pattern booklet for the All-n-One loom from the Authentic Knitting Board company.  I was asked to submit 5 design proposals for loom knit patterns using the All-n-One.  Of those, 3 would be chosen for the booklet.

An All-n-One loom arrived here in late April and a lot of loom knitting followed.  Plus pattern writing, and pic clicking, etc.  But enough about the nitty gritty details 😉  All of that work, and the work of a few other very talented loom knit designers has come together inside the pages of this fabulous new booklet:

A few lucky recipients got their hands on advance copies of this booklet, Loom Knitting with the All-n-One Loom, at a loom knitting retreat in Texas at the end of October.  Lucky ducks, right?  But, not to worry – you can now purchase this booklet from the Authentic Knitting Board website.  (Just click the link at the top of this paragraph)

Alright, just for kicks, let’s take a look at the projects I contributed to this book.  First up, is Darby:

Darby is a textured, rectangular wrap knit in Bernat Mosaic.  Mosaic has lovely, vibrant colorways and was the perfect yarn for this spirited accessory.  It was fun watching the colors change as I worked through this project.  I think this design would be beautiful if worked up in a solid color too.

Next up is Ashley:

Ashley is a delicate, feminine shawlette.  It was knit with Sheep(ish) from Caron.  I was aiming for something whisper soft with a wonderful drape.  I am really pleased with how this shawlette turned out.  It feels very luxurious and completely cuddly.  I need to make at least two more just like it!

And last, but definitely not least, Hadley:

Hadley started out as a dress only.  Specifically, a knitted vest with an attached fabric skirt.  Somewhere along the line, I decided to modify the pattern to give the option for knitters to knit the vest as a stand alone piece, or to knit the vest and then add the fabric skirt.  I think it made the design much more versatile.

Here is a look at the Hadley vest:

And one more of the Hadley dress:

So, now you have a closer look at three of the designs in the Loom Knitting with the All-n-One Loom book.  But the loom knitting fun has only just begun.  There are 8 additional projects in the book and they are all fantastic!

The Loom Knitting with the All-n-One Loom book is beautifully put together and well worth adding to your loom knitting library (if I do say so myself, haha).  If you don’t already have a copy, maybe Santa will spoil you with it this Christmas… 😉

Happy Loom Knitting!

A new month has breezed on in and that means new loom alongs, too!

In the Loom Along group on Ravelry, for the main loom along, we’ve started working on the Drop Stitch Scarf pattern by Isela Phelps. We’ll be working on this pattern through May and June, so you’ll have plenty of time to make a drawer full of these pretties.

Also in the Loom Along group, for the Purchased Pattern LAL, we’re still working on the Pinwheel Baby Blanket pattern by Denise Layman.  This one runs until the end of May, so come on over and join in on the fun.

In the Loom Knitter’s Circle group on Ravelry, we’re taking advantage of the newly published issue of Loom Knitter’s Circle.  We’re working on Bethany Dailey‘s lovely Chain Lace Cowl from the Spring 2012 issue.  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.

In the Loomin’ Socks group, they’ve moved on from mini socks and are making full sized socks.  Diana has lined up some great resources for loom knitting socks, so be sure to check it out.  And the Loom Class group on yahoo has some neat projects lined up for this month.  Hop on over there and check them out.  And that wraps up all of the current loom alongs that I happen to know about 😉

Happy Loom Knitting!

We’re already a week into February!  It’s time to talk about all of the wonderful loom alongs we’ve got going on this month.

In the Loom Along group, we are finishing up on the Loom Knit Bee Bopper Bags that we started in January.  Hopefully you’re a little farther along than I am.  I have half of a bag so far, haha.

In the Loom Knitter’s Circle Magazine group, our archive pick for February is the 25th Street Stole pattern from the Winter 2010 issue of Loom Knitter’s Circle.  Since that issue has moved to the archives, I’ve made this pattern available as a free Ravelry download.  Super spiffy, right?

And we’re having twice the fun in the LKC group because of the magazine re-launch.  We’re making Bethany Dailey’s adorable penguin, Mr. Wobbles!  Come create a sweet little penguin of your very own.

Last, but definitely not least, during February and March we’re making Renee Van Hoy’s lovely shawlette, Sweet on Ruffles.  This pattern is available in Renee’s Loom Knit Shawls pattern booklet, and she’s also made it available for sale individually for the duration of the loom along.

These loom alongs are all happening in the groups on Ravelry.  If you aren’t a member yet, join up and come play with us!  Also, the Mr. Wobbles loom along is happening in the LKC group on facebook and in Bethany’s group on yahoo.  We’d love for you to visit the LKC facebook group and chat with us about your projects if you are making Mr. Wobbles or a 25th Street scarf or stole.

Happy Knitting!
