My New Addiction:)

OK, this is seriously fun.  Since I am home recovering I have been watching alot more TV than usual. I got into an HSN special with Martha Stewart.  They had an exclusive for this one event. I think it will eventually be available on her site, but it appears to be all sold out on HSN and I was not able to find any photos on their site to post here. But this is a knitting and weaving kit. There are different size bars, circular looms, and different sized pegs to create all kinds of knitted or woven items. I have tried and tried to knit and even crochet. I dont know if its because I am left handed, or if thats a good excuse for just not having the knitting gene!  But I went to my sisters to bum a skein of yard to practice. I set the loom up for a scarf and was just going to practice. This is soooo easy, my first effort has turned out and it will even be able to be used! Next I am going to make a hat. There are directions for making the flowers too. So I will even all a couple flowers. I think I will make a few as gifts too. I am going to be working on a hand made Christmas this year. I better get started:)  I hope you all have a great day and have fun creating something new.

I love loom knitting! I have a book that even teaches how to do cables on a loom. They are so much fun.
