I have had a yarn addiction for several years, and I have attempted to crochet, but I have never been very good at reading patterns. I have wanted to make beautiful yarn projects, but have failed most of the time. My husband recently bought me a round loom set, and I am in love! I haven’t made much with it yet, but I am intrigued by the videos I have seen online showing the variety of objects that can be made using these looms.
I have carpal tunnel syndrome, and holding my crochet hook and yarn would make my hand go numb rather quickly, so any projects I did start would take longer than they should have. I have been able to whip up a few hats pretty quickly on my new looms. I did practice a few different stitches on the last hat I made…the pink/purple one, so I am not actually happy with the result. It was good practice though. As you can see from my photos, I think I could afford to waste a bit of my stash on it. 😉
I know I have written in the past that I don’t have time to get into crafting, but these looms make a project go quickly and I can do it while relaxing on the couch after work which I was already doing anyway. I will also report that my time with my Bible has increased too, but I still need to do better in that area. I have found that I am able to read a bit even on my early work days when I first get up. At 2am the house is usually very quiet. 😉
I will post some pictures of past projects that I have made with crochet. I have several more “hidden” around the house, but this is what was easy to find. 🙂
There are also several works in progress stored throughout my house. Many of them have been sitting for years and will most likely be taken apart rather than finished. I hate to take apart hours of my work, but I would rather use the yarn for a new project than have it sit undone.
