Way cool Scarf video!

This is just for me for safe keeping!

I love that it's pretty. A lot of loom knit scarves look loom knit, this one does not. This one is on my list to create!

Warm fuzzies

This is a weekend challenge and I decided to get back to scrapping. You make me smile phrase comes from the Cricut cart "Phrases". Snow flakes are a Martha Stewart punch and the glittery stones flourish I got on special clearance at Michael's. I prefer simple and to make the photos the stars of the page.

These two give me the warm fuzzies! :-)

Fair Isle or Color Work or Stranded knitting or Intarsia knitting on a loom

It's no secret that I am not of fan of knitting with needles. Just can't seem to do it tension wise. That's why I own and love my looms! That doesn't mean that I don't look for knitting patterns in second hand shops and used book stores for some of the older patterns. There is one, a Christmas afghan that I'd love to make and it uses Fair Isle. But how do I do it on a loom? I came across two videos, one when you work in the round:

The other, I'm going to try to see if it works on a flat panel:

I just thought I'd pass on the information to my readers so that if you've been wanting to try this, it can be done!

Thank goodness, more ambitious people have figured it out for me already!
