Whilst staying with my mother last week I was given a few bits and bobs that were not needed by her … I tried to use this little loom with a flat cotton yarn and it didn’t seem that great, but before passing it on to someone else I decided to try it with a baby soft chunky wool which I had previously crocheted into a bedspread…. finished it and hated it so, unpicked.
When I tried this wool on the loom the flowers looked good
and now I’m unstoppable, making flowers on the bus or train to and from work and then when home stitching them together, I’ve made loads more flowers than I have so far stitched together, that’s not such a fun activity but I will continue and hopefully, will get enough to make a throw for my bed.
Sometimes completing a rather mindless task is nice and relaxing, this flower loom is just that, once you’ve got the knack you’re off and I love it. They are still available if you fancy joining me.
I’ve kept this very simple as I want to do so many, but there are so many ideas for more complicated patterns. I can see this little loom is going to prove very handy!
(They do lay flat – I’d just gathered them up to have a little tidy when I realised I hadn’t a taken a photo for this!)
Thanks for reading, back soon,
