Knitting projects update

This is a knitting rake. It's about 22 inches long. I'm knitting single knit going up one side and down the other. The fabric looks like it's going to be about 28 inches wide. I was thinking it would be a nice shawl but the knit fabric is more blanket like. It may end up a lap blanket. The brown section is in garter stitch. The new white section is being done in seed stitch. The 3rd color is a light strawberry pink. When it's finished it should look like neapolitan ice cream.

This is my infinity or "S" loom that my brother gave me for Christmas. The last photo of this had about 3 inches of fabric showing. It has about 12 inches now and I just started my 2nd skein of yarn. The loom is about 18 inches in length. The fabric should be about 36 inches wide. I'm hoping to make 4 panels and then sew them together to make a bed-sized afghan.

And this is a flower loom that I'm using to make a scarf with ribbon yarn. It's not in any way to keep you warm, more of an accessory. I'm hoping to make a dozen of these for next winter's bell choir fundraiser. My sister-in-law uses a ladder yarn. I think they come out so much nicer with that yarn. I haven't been able to find any locally so I thought I'd try it with the ribbon yarn to see what I get.

And, yes, I have three projects going at once. I didn't used to do that but I found both the afghan looms a bit frustrating. Now I also keep a simple hat or scarf going.


  1. OH wow...I've always wanted to learn how to knit! I love to cross stitch and needlepoint, as it's such an excellent way to relax and clear your mind. It looks like you are a pro at knitting! I'm impressed!

  3. Oh, Aimee, thanks, but just a beginner trying out new things. I love the loom knitting and am so thrilled when something turns out to be beautiful!
