Well, I’ve missed a couple of blogs for Looming Lady. Literally and personally. I had planned to complete a blog on favorite hats from the loom. But life intervened. My home is full of family, who had an emergency and needed a quick, temporary stop while their own house is being repaired. My yarn baskets are scattered and so is my yarn. The other night, I looked on my printer and thought I saw my Gracie cat. She likes electronics. But the printer wasn’t active and she was so still that I became worried. When I checked, it turned out that “Gracie” was just a skein of black yarn. Why was my black yarn on the printer? I’d rather not know.
Beside my home being full, my life has been overwhelming. Work, guests, extra animals, extra work, has all been crowding my time. But life is like loom knitting (or any yarn craft for that matter). The best thing to do is to keep plugging along. You might have to frog a piece (that means unravel it.) Change a project (colors or styles). But keep on keeping on. So that is what I’m doing. I’m going to delay my hat piece and explain some of my web site changes.
I am adding a loom knitting technical manual page to my website. I want to cover how to loom, stitches, pattern stitches and patterns. So far I started with the beginning, a very good place I think. The loom. Casting on with a slip stitch. E-wrapping. This week I hope to show a video completing a project – a squirrel patterned off my cat design. So check out my new page and my newest pattern!
