Dusted off my never-used Concertina Inkle loom from #windhavenfibertools and following Kelly's Casanova's new inkle weaving class, got this baby warped and my band in progress. I also used my learnings from Long Thread Media's tablet weaving classes to create great selvedges and lock in those beginning threads. Excited to amp up what I can do by adding tablets and changing this loom from a 2-shaft to a 4-shaft loom. Stay tuned..... #yarncloudweavers #kellycasanovaweavingschool

😭 going to miss popping in the shop at beautiful historic Occoquan.
Finished pictures with human model! Loving the softness 🥰
“Straight on the Bias” finished and on the blocking mats! I’ll post a picture of me wearing it once it’s dry.
Do you have the reinforcement fiber/elastic for knitting toes and heels for handmade socks?
Robyn, if you get the Outlander knitting patterns book, please save one for me!! Thanks honey!! 🧶
All done ✅ just have to block,
Knitting on the Bias KAL finished
I made the swatch for the Straight on the Bias KAL using scrap yarn 🥰 I think I made myself a cute little coaster
I’m always seeing a group of mini skiens. Do you have cotton/blend, DK wt.? I’m wanting to make washcloths. I prefer natural colors. I would need them mailed.
Finally finished my Lotus Flower throw blanket using this luscious Painted Lace yarn. I used a 3.5mm hook. I think I might add a single crochet round to finish the edge. I hope my friend loves it as much as I do!🧶 it measures 52 inch across.
I think I figured out how to knit in the round!! This yarn is amazing! I’m going to have to come back and get the short circulars for a toddler hat🙌🏻🧶 thank you for all your help today Robyn!#birthdayyarn #learninganewskill #iknit
How adorable is this hat Ms. Robyn!?
