Ignore the crappiness of my pics, my good cameras battery is dead Sad so I had to use my phone.
This would have taken me 2 or 3 days if I sat down and just DID it, but I had so many projects going, I pushed it aside. I did the final 5 "wings" in a day because I was anxious and wanted it off my loom for a bigger project. I used the Cindwood 90 peg small afghan loom. I loooove that loom. The pinks are pinker, and the blue has a hint of sparkly green in it you can't see in the pics. This is my first attempt at a wingspan, and I also have the lace pattern, from The Invisible Loom (I love that site, and have bought and downloaded most of their ebooks) Soooo here you go!



It is very soft, I used JC Brett's marble yarn.. Its also machine safe!

I didn't know you could do that with a loom, that's cool.

Thanks! I used a 90 peg Cindwood loom and got the pattern from The Invisible Loom. The more pegs you have the bigger it gets. Mine is about "standard" size, but I've got a hankering to make a huge one by using my All n' One loom.

I'm also making a mini one, kind of a scarf, on my Bufanda looms. They're the same size as Knifty Knitters, but you can add and subtract pegs. Right now I have an 82 peg loom (the size of the large Knifty Knitter yellow loom, I added pegs) that I'm making 9 "wings" on, but half the size as that!

I love my Cindwood loom. The problem is I only have one. Sad I want to buy everything she sells at Cindwood Crafts. AMAZING stuff. Good prices, but the shipping is pretty high, especially international (I'm Canadian) due to size. Totally worth it though! It's my fave loom.

Sorry for the ramble!
