Another man's trash...another's treasure! Junk Love Wednesday
I don't know if I can really call this Junk, however, I did find 4 of these in a local thrift store for less than $5 each - complete! I mailed two to my sister and niece; and, kept 2 for my daughters and myself!
I tried it this past week...and, I'm hooked (pun, intended)! I made a cowl neckwarmer, that even I can wear here in Florida. During the summers, the air conditioning can be brutal in most places! And, I'm at that age where I'm getting more aches. ;D
I found some really cool YouTube video tutorials for using these type and other looms! I plan to make hats for babies...
...aren't these yarns yummy? Another find in the thrift store!
I also, plan to make more cowl neckwarmers, hats for everyone, bath sponges...and, socks!
Nothing takes away from hand knitting...the looms are a different knitting experience (as the package says).
Peace and Junk Love!
