Fabulous Shawl

i got 2 pictures of the shawl I've been working on. Its called fabulous cos thats the name of one of the yarns, not cos I think its fabulous! Actually its too narrow so I'm doing another strip to add to it. I love what it looks like with the fabulous running thru it, and the Caron simply Soft feels so..soft!

Fun Fur Sweater

Finally a picture, even tho its not finished. This is my mom, Bea, 86 years old. I am going to add 2 small panels to the front with buttons and a collar. It looks like a fur jacket but its very light. Its made from 2 strands of fun fur, very stretchy! I wasn't planning on it being as stretchy as it is so I'm making adjustments. Almost finished with a kimono from Lion Brand. And a shawl... well I am going to rip that out and start again since I don't have enough Caron Fabulous. So I will start again using only 1 strand of Fabulous instead of 2.

2nd post, hopefully this will work better than the 1st!

To the left, hopefully the picture is where its supposed to be, is a diagram of how to wrap a flat piece on a round loom. I had so much trouble with this when I started and I know alot of other new loomers do so hopefully this will help.

First Blog Mar 12, 06

Welcome to my little space on the internet. I'm Linda, I live on the north-east shore of Lake Tahoe. Probably one of the most beautiful places on earth. I can't wait to get out of here! Snow. I hate snow! Anyway, this blog is about loom knitting, well mostly, I may throw some other stuff in here. I am a cake decorator. Hmmmm that picture of the cakes was supposed to go here, not on top, oh well. I'll figure this thing out eventually.
OK. I starting looming just before Christmas. Its so addictive. I have managed to ignore winter pretty much by looming, and not looking out the window. I've made several magic scarves
picture of blue MS (supposed to be here but somehow made its way to the top)
