New way to play...






After attending the Maker Faire in May and trying my hand with handheld looms, I thought that I would see about ordering one for myself. Well, it turned out that they were more cash than I wanted to part with right now, so I turned to more resourceful means, and with Mark's help, fashioned a functional (though less beautiful) loom for $1. The loom makes 4" self finishing squares like you see above. Though I could stitch them together to make something larger, right now I am content just to admire the resourcefulness of these little squares in using up last little bits of yarn. They are acting as coasters right now...

Wow, those are great! I definitely have to come over to see this loom myself. ;) Could be a great way to work through some of my stash ...
