Stitches of Light and More

Crochet, plastic canvas, wreaths and more

My first knitted projects

Well here they are! My first knitted projects completed on the Knifty Knitter small round loom. Instead of trying the hat pattern that came with the loom, I decided to try these cute dish scrubbies. I found the pattern here: http://www.rostitchery.com/2005/11/knifty_kitchen_.html
I used acrylic yarn as that is what I had with me on our weekend trip. The purple scrubbie on the left I tried using three strands of yarn. I love the sturdiness of it. The turquoise one I did two strands and like how it feels in my hand. So I’m not sure which way I like better. I will probably make some of each. I’m excited that they turned out and I am looking forward to finding another project for my round looms.

Knifty Knitters!

After my struggle to learn to crochet, I really have not felt compelled to try to learn to knit. Until now! While ordering some stuff for one of my children online, I a came across a set of these round knifty knitters round looms in clearance. And they have arrived. And I am excited! So in a little bit I am going to try them out and see what happens. Have you tried these before? Do you love them? What are your favorite patterns?
