The soap sack off the loom
I find it very hard to pass up yarn, especially on sale. Scrubby, by Red Heart, was such a deal. It was $2.50 instead of $5 at JoAnns over Christmas and I got some. It looked perfect to make a spa basket.
Then I got some soap for Christmas. Very pretty lavender soap. I love lavender. So I made myself my very first spa basket. I started with a soap sack. I made face pads.
“You will need, for this project, scrubby yarn, 18 peg loom, yarn needle, and a loom hook. Start by double e-wrapping all the pegs on the loom.” Complete wrapping.
“Knit off all the lower loops for round 1. As you knit off, u-wrap and lift the now bottom loops over the upper loops. You have completed 2 rounds in 1!”
“E=wrap around. Repeat our recent step of lifting the lower loop over the top loop, then unwrapping and lift the lower loop over the top loop.”
Repeat these 2 rows 14 more times. knit off. cut a long tail and use it to close the bottom flap with the yarn needle.
The sack is simple, and works well. The yarn is soft despite it’s “scrubbiness”. It doesn’t dry quickly as I would expect. I am pleased with my final product, though. That’s what matters.
