Doing a Little Loomy Experimenting~

Embellishments for future book projects!  These were created on a FG loom… not perfect, but definitely progress! 🙂

ps: I got my free pastry yesterday with my Starbucks order… I enjoyed a non fat black tea latte with reduced fat chocolate chip banana bread!  It was super-d-delicious!  Did you get to pick up yours???

    The star is awesome, Bethany – I love it! The circle on the bottom left looks like the loom knitter’s circle I use as the foundation of the granny squares. It’s very versatile and can be modified and used in many ways: flowers, amigurumi ears, buttons, etc.

    I was thinking that too Brenda 🙂 I love the star especially – very good idea!!! Keep up the good work.

    Thanks so much, Gals! 🙂 Brenda, I’ve been dying to see how you did your pretty granny squares…can’t wait!!! Do you know when we might be able to share in your great granny knowledge, lol?

    These little goodies will be used in several different projects that I have in mind. The star can actually be used as a very pretty decorative trim on an edge. The flower is a favorite of mine as well…especially right now for spring! 🙂

    Brenda has the tutorial up on her site now. It’s on the right hand side under loom knitting techniques.

    Thanks, Kelly! I didn’t know that…I’m going right now! 😉

    I posted the granny square tutorial over a week ago (thanks to Kelly’s encouragement), but just never blogged about it. the first place I used what I call the LMC (Loomer’s Magic Circle) was in the Watermelon Coaster tutorial. The coasters were sort of the springboard for the granny squares. I have used modifications along the bind off edge of the LMC to create a number of items.

    Oooh, looking super, Bethany 🙂 Love them! Especially the flower, hehe. Hugs!

    Thanks, Brenda! I’m so glad you were able to post the instructions to your granny square. I had a chance to look through your instructions a bit, and it looks like we came up with the same thing, just through a different method…I think yours might actually be easier, lol! ;D

    You’re absolutely right, it’s really a very nice base shape for many things…thanks again!

    Thanks so much, Jenny! I really like the flower too…could you imagine a few all lined up on a head band??? I know you enjoy whipping those up for your little girlie… 😉

    OOHHH Love those. How cute!! I’ve been AWOL lately and still behind. Book? Are you publishing a book? What book? When? Where? I need info, LOL!

    Really, great job on them. Love the star, flower and circle. So many ways to use those! So many possibilities for them.
    Thank you for sharing them with us!

    Hi! I was just wondering where you purchased the fine gauge round loom you use for the “Bethany Booties”? I just purchased the pattern, but don’t think I can use the loom I’ve got. Thanks in advance. 🙂

    Hi, Heather! I’m so glad you like the booties…they’re such cuties, aren’t they? 🙂

    To answer your question, the loom I used is the Decor Accents Fine Gauge 44 Pegs Sock Loom found here: http://www.decoraccentsinc.com/Sock_Knitting_Looms_p/sk-001.htm

    BUT….I also included an optional Knifty Knitter version in the pattern instructions, as well as a loom gauge chart, so you should be able to to transfer to another loom if you so desire. 😉 Give me a hollar if you need any help with that, K?

    Enjoy your day…and those booties!

    Hello, there Linda! 🙂 It’s always so nice to hear from you!

    Book: yes, I’m finally biting the bullet, taking the dive and going for it, lol! I decided that I needed to stop spinning my wheels and focus my efforts on a single project that will be a benefit to all…in book form. 😉 I’m intending on self publishing when it’s all complete and will keep everyone posted on my progress along the way. I’m pretty excited, and feel very good about this decision.

    Thanks for the enthusiasm about the little shapes! You can bet they’ll be embellishing some projects in the near future, lol! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, Linda…have an excellent day!
