So I have some new toys. I've never been one much for yarn crafts. My mother tried to teach me to crochet many years ago and it was a spectacular failure. My rows kept getting shorter and tighter. I finally gave up. Now that I am getting back into crafting, I've been thinking about trying yarn crafts again. A coworker was kind enough to give me two round knitting looms she had laying around after I saw them online and mentioned how I wanted to try it. What is a knitting loom you ask? The round ones look like this:
My mother also gave me a lot of yarns. One in particular was a bulky purple yarn that looks only slightly narrower than a pencil if not pulled tight. I decided to see how that one loomed up since its bulk would make good winter weight items. Again I did a child size being unsure of whether I had enough yarn. Of course now the remainder is too small to make anything else with. No clue what to do with it.
Not having children of appropriate age in my family at the moment, all the hats except for the purple one are being donated to a domestic violence shelter in the local area. As I experiment with different yarns and such, the finished products will go there if I don't have a recipient in mind.
