Coming Through

The blanket is coming through the loom and boy is it soft. (Remember, this blanket is done in bulky weight Red Heart Baby Clouds.) The loom itself is 15 inches long. It isn't hard to get used to. When full it makes a blanket 48 inches wide (that is what the instructions say) and how ever long you wish to make it. If you use the tube wrapping goes fast and it doesn't take long at all to do a row. I am really impressed with this loom. And I plan to buy some more from Check out her looms. They are very well made and service is excellent.

I am now looking at one for 1 over 1 using sport or worsted weight. Be sure to check out Cindi's looms.

Doing what I love

This is me crocheting for Global Health Ministries, part of our Loves Many Cloths projects. The picture is for America Responds with Love, another organization that we make cloths and other items such as baby hats, booties and blankets for. In the box are bandages. The box is almost full and will soon be sent.

If you love to crochet come join us. You will see the link on the bottom right side of the page.

New Projects

The first pic is cloths done on the loom. The purple one is done in very soft Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. The natural and green varigated cloth was done in Peaches and Cream. I want to thank Elmore Pisgah and The Brown Sheep Company for there donations to Loves Many Cloths. It is deeply appreciated.

The 2nd pic is my new infinity loom. I have started a baby blanket in Red Heart Baby Cloths yarn. It is bulky so my wrap is only 1 over 1. It is just about ready to come through the bottom. Will post again when there is some length to it. I am sure I am going to have to buy some more yarn to finish this one.

Cone Holder

Hubby made this for me to put my cotton cones on. I love it. My cones don't fall over anymore. I did have to ask him to make another one for me since I have different projects going at one time. I think most of my friends do that too. We sure don't get bored.
