We had such a great turnout today!
We all enjoyed Karen's presentation.
She brought a variety of loom sizes, and some lovely pieces she has finished and some she is working on. She gave very clear instructions how to start a project and the steps we take to finish it.
We had the opportunity to work on the loom, and were amazed at how easy Karen's directions were to follow.
Her keen eyes caught the little mistakes we didn't know we had. No worry she showed us little tricks on how to fix them.
Comparing the size of the weave still in the loom, to one that has been taken off.
You need to keep this in mind when you select your loom size. The finished piece will be smaller.
There are several sources for looms on the internet, but Sunflower is no longer in business.
Now we carefully remove it from the loom.
This is the loom
Exa gets a chance to see first hand one of Karen's looms.
Row 1 and Row 2 woven onto the loom
We keep adding rows and weaving across as we go.
Look at her go.
She has an unusual source for her yarn.
She is on a roll with her lovely green yarn.
With a small loom I was able to finish my weave. After I finish the edges, I will remove it.
Then we have Mary Smith
And What Is This??
She is a knitting machine!
How she is able to knit her intricate, delicate lace pieces with so much going on around her is beyond comprehension.
Look what Karen Stakely drug in....
None of us had ever heard of Scrubby yarn, but here it is.
You have to feel it to believe it. It is a little scratchy and feels like it is coated with a film of rubber. Perfect for knitting dish cloths for scrubbing.
If you make a hat with it, it might cling to your head and never come off. Of course it might shed water!
Maybe a sweater for that Couch Potato, they would never slide off the sofa if they fell asleep.
