Twyla on Tuesday

Hello beautiful ladies!

I have a new toy!
I recently went to a craft festival where I saw it demonstrated.
I was intrigued enough to give it a try.
It was very easy to get the hang of.

I don't know what the name of the loom is.  I would love to
know if any of you have tried this kind of loom before
and what you may have made with it.

This is a scarf I made for Lindsey. She loved all the bright colors.

It has a very different weave.  Light and airy as well
as thick and warm.
I am hooked!

My other passion is creating art with paint and scrapbook paper.
I made this one for my son's birthday.  I wanted to do a circus
themed picture in non traditional colors. 
He loved it!

Thank you so much for visiting with me today.
I love sharing with you all that I am creating.
I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful fall.
We are having warm, sunny days that I wish could
last a long time!
Enjoy your day and do something you love!

The loom is very cool, and I think I could even manage that! I Would love to know what it's called. Love your artwork...love the colors!

Love the colours in both the scarf, and the card. I recall having a loom like that. Nn..ooo I won't say how long ago...lol...!! Happy crafting, Jenny

Looks like that loom was a great find! There is a guy in our town who has one in a round shape I believe, he makes the nicest winter hats out of it, as well as scarves.

Your art is amazing! Keep it up!

The loom looks like a loose knit stitch!! Looms were a big thing in the 60's & 70's. Most were used to loom flowers or motifs. I still have several round ones!!
Great Post....
Have a Great Day!!

Hello pretty ladies,

Twyla, I just don't recall the name of that loom, but I've definitely seen it before. The scarf is very pretty with all those multiple colors, and I'll just bet Lindsey can wear it with almost anything.

I love your circus collage, and the color is very nice......soothing. How old is your son?

Keep goin' missy, you're doin' a fabulous job.

I have one, and a round one. They make great hats and scarfs. you can double the yarn to make it thicker. Using a chennille yarn doubles (two colors make a nice tweed) makes the softest warmest scarf!!

I've never seen a loom like that, but it looks like fun. The colors you chose are so pretty!

Good morning Twyla! I watched a friend make a hat on a similar loom! She traveled with her husband a lot and would make them as they went along. ♥

It is called a knitting board, and there are many good books out there dedicated to the things you can do with them. Also some very good online patterns and tutorials. I even learned how to cable stitch on it. As you can probably tell I love mine.

What a clever little loom - does it do a variety of stitches depending on how your work it? And your circus tent colors and vintage look is sweet! I'm in the throes of planning a project journal now to see me through the winter - I'm soaking in all the inspiration I find here in Blogworld - especially with two crazy crafters I know!

I have seen that loom before at a knitting shop in Waynesville Ohio. They had the kit for sale, but I didn't get it..it looks fun. That piece you painted is beautiful..you ought to join us over at Etsy Cottage Style for the Cottage Colors Party they are perfect Aqua examples!

I was at the farmer's market recently and the lady at one of the booths was making hats on a round loom. She was making them for children with cancer. They were so cute and she said very easy to do.
Love the scarf you made. Such pretty colors.
