Praising God for the Colors of Spring

Loving the coming season with all its splendor. Spring is truly here in the Panhandle of Florida!
And this is just a few. Look around and see how many glorious colors you can see.

Moving Right Along

Moving right along with my bandage loom. As you can see I am using 100% mercerized cotton. The process is starting to speed up a bit. Now I must admit there are a few other things in the works too. Having fun with them all. I am enjoying doing the bandages this way.


OH my so sorry for the blurr. Can't you tell I am still learning? Well this is my very first Double Pointed Needle hat. It is supposed to be a spiral. Think I will try it in a solid color next. Maybe the picture will be better too. So much fun. Need to get back to it.

Answering Some Bandage Questions

The bandages done on this loom is from 100% mercerized cotton, size 10. It must be in either white or ecru. The loom is 4 inches. Each bandage must measure 4 feet. You can also make them 3 inches if you prefer. They are being sent to Global Health Ministries through Loves Many Cloths yahoo group. Please see my links to join us. Other questions may be answered through the group.
I want to thank everyone who has shown an interest in these.

Coming Through

Here is the bandage coming through the loom. With a little practice it is quite easy. I have elected not to use the tube for running the thread. My fingers are small and I can easily wrap the pins without it. This is addicting.

Specialty Loom

A beautifully made specialty loom from This is used in making leper bandages. Now it is small but as you can see in the picture it has a tube to run your thread through. I am in the process of learning how to use it. I am new to looming and have never used one like this. Right now it is tedious but I am determined.

Now on another note: I frogged the DP hat. Those things are awkward to use. I may try my hand at it later. The trouble started when I tried to knit in a little pattern. I think if I start with just plain knitting I may be able to do it. Looms, hats and bandages are holding my interest right now. I want to be able to make cloths on it too. But not to worry the needles and hooks are not in the plans to put down. I enjoy all of it.

More Hats For Loves Many Cloths

I am enjoying my Knifty Knitter. A person can whip up a hat in no time at all. Also have been enjoying the needles. Now knitting has never been my prefered method of working with yarn. But this is fun. Maybe because it is for charity. Everything is given away. These hats are slated for Michelle at Loves Many Cloths. We started out with cloths and have recently expaned to leper bandages and hats. If you like to make projects for charity come join us. We would love to have you.

First Try DP's

Here is the start of my first try with double pointed needles. It is a shame that WalMart doesn't sell these. I want to thank my Mother for sending me hers. They are a size 7 and I am attempting to knit a baby hat. Now this hat is going to have something else that I have never done. there will be a little design knitted into it. Sure hope that I have patience enough to do it. My goal is to post this finished rolled brim hat.

Wow! I did it. This is my first knitted (on needles) baby hat. It didn't take any time at all to do. There is another one on my needles. Now I would love to have this as a full time job. Maybe just maybe my speed will pick up.
