Yarn Lurve


I am currently LOVING Peaches & Creme 100% cotton worsted weight yarn!
The colors, the textures, the feel of it on the loom is wonderful.
I find myself making dozens and dozens of washcloths and dishcloths...

eventually I'll branch out into something else....

...or not!

Joann-
Where did you get your fine guage loom?
I tried to make one and it didn't work out.
I have realized I really need a fine guage to do a lot of the projects I want and to use the yarns I prefer.

It came from Hobby Lobby. It's a 'Knitting Board' brand and it's wonderful!!!

Looks wonderful....I am so glad that there is no Hobby Lobby nearby. I'd spend waaaay too much time there...

But maybe I need to make a trip to the north..and hit the one about 45 min from here...not sure when I'll do that, though.

I do like a nice cotton yarn, though...

Hmmmm. Its getting to be about time for me to pull out my scarlet red wool wrap project I started last winter...get that done before it gets cold...

I love the yarn you have on the loom right now--is that a particular colorway?

That's the yard I used to crochet the blanket for Danny when he was baptized. It was great.
Love the new photo btw. You look gorgeous!

Joann-
how do you get your tension right with the board and the cotton yarn.
Mine is way too loose and I can't figure out how to get it tighter.
Any suggestions?

My weave is pretty loose as well. I use double strands (2 balls of yarn at the same time) and it makes it much better!
