2  Upcycled round knitting loom WITH TUTORIAL (pic chunky!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by minowisbitt8lo on: December 09, 2009 01:12:05 PM
I really had no idea where to put this, so here it is: My very first tutorial.

I have always wanted one of those Nifty Knitter things, but I didn't want to shell out the cash for one.  So, boredom, a snow day from work, and some junk around the house became:

Minowis's neato Knitter!

DISCLAIMER: I have never used one of these knitting loom thingies before, so I wasn't sure about the details/specs.  this was pulled out of my ear as I went along.  Grin

Step 1: find a can.  DH smokes and rolls his own, so...

take off the lid and the closed end of the can

and I ran out of duct tape (HORRORS!) so I used electrical tape to cover the ends:

96 cents worth of craft dowels from the local supermegamart, which I cut into 4" lengths

filed down the ends, and covered them in tape

time out for the craft inspector

white glue the sticks onto the can somewhat evenly, I also covered the can in black construction paper

all the way around

wrap it all in tape for sturdiness

and it works!!

next time, I would probably make the pegs shorter at the top edge, but all in all, I really like the way it came out. 

thanks for looking!

3  Can I turn an Embroidery Frame (Scroll-Style) into a Loom? in Weaving: Discussion and Questions by minowisbitt8lo on: December 06, 2009 03:09:47 PM
I have a very simple scroll-style embroidery frame like this one:

I know that is what my grandmama used to make her rag rugs, but I am clueless!!  Do any of you wonderful, knowledgeable weaver-types have any advice you'd be willing to share on how to get this thing to resemble something to weave on?  I thought of putting nails in it, but I know that she didn't.  

Thank you for your time!

I just recently picked up cross stitch after some prodding from a friend.  I work in a call centre which allows us to do activities as long as out call times are good and we're meeting goals.  I started with some tiny cutesy ones I found at Hobby Lobby and then embarked on:

Here's my progress:

and it's only going to be about 6x6 inches, but it's the biggest thing I've ever worked on lol

aaaaaaaaaand...I just saw the flub...GAH!
