« on: March 04, 2012 04:27:08 PM »

Ok I bought a butterfly loom on clearance and wanted to try something new.


So I started with using up Green varigated yarn I bought 6 years ago to make a blanket for my husband. I was no good at guessing how much the yarn i would need and ended making a ripple blanket for him a matching one for my daughter, Baby hat, Baby blanket, baby sweater, adult slippers and adult sweater for my mom and I still have 3 large skeins. Since the yarn was sitting in my stash moking me. I started making squares with it. I was happy I was down to 1 skien then while cleaning up some projects that I had in project bags I found that another skein of that cursed green yarn. So now I have 2 skiens left to work up. Told you it just taunts me. Well I wouldnt let it win. I finished it.  It is a sampler I tried out 5 squares so there are five rows of 5 squares. Nice and warm.







My husband who taunted me along with the cursed Green yarn Posed with my daughter for me.


Thanks for looking.

Congrats for conquering that yarn!  I hate when yarn gets full of itself.  LOL!  I like the butterfly loom too and I feel inspired to pull out my looms.  Thanks!!

Very cool - I bet it's so soft!  I have never seen anything like this before - so it's woven and crocheted together?  Is it difficult/time consuming?  The effect is really wonderful!

Not it is not complicated and depending on how fast you crochet it isnt that time consuming either. I was able to do like 4 or 5 squares a day when working on it off and on. It really was quite fun.

Yay for finally using up the last of that yarn! I have some fabric like that that's been taunting me forever so I know how you feel  Tongue

The blanket looks great too!

I've done the butterfly loom method on my martha stewart knit and weave loom before, just wrap the yarn around 2 pegs instead of a tab, if that makes sense. If anyone's interested I can make up a tute on how to do it.
