Was playing around just trying to see what I could come up with and here it is, my latest creation a pair of soakers/diaper cover. These were made with Phentex Elite and turned out fairly well.

Now that I am all caught up with my classes, and waiting for the next class to start, I decided to try and design something myself. I really like the little bow butterfly pattern and after a few froggings and wondering if I really could do this, below is the little bow butterfly bonnet that I made. I used one strand of Red Heart Comfort yarn and the red Knifty Knitter to do the pattern. I am quite pleased with the way it turned out for a first attempt at making up a pattern myself.

Now that the nicer weather is here and I am able to get outside more, I am finally starting to feel better and have managed to get caught up on my looming classes, below are my two finished projects.

I finished the baby bonnet for the Loom Class and really wanted to do the Little Socks but my problem was that I didn't have the right loom to do the class. Then because I really wanted to do these socks/booties, Necessity became the Mother of invention. Below are pictures of how I accomplished being able to do these. Thank you Graciela for this patten!

Above are the finished socks/booties

The following pictures are how I finally accomplished doing these without the loom called for in the pattern. This idea came to me while making spaghetti, after opening the can of tomato paste I thought if I buy some cotter pins and put them around the sides of the can it should be close enough to the loom size needed. So after a trip to Canadian Tire and $1.70 later, I set to work putting the pins around the side of the can and taping them there with heavy duty packing tape. Then to try my first sock/bootie, success it worked perfectly.
