Yarn Experimentation

by Dee
(Suffolk, UK)

I just love looming, I refuse to give in to my experiments with thin yarn, 4ply or double knit. I have created several different patterns with the help of my new convert. Has any one accomplished an interesting patterns using such yarns that they would like to share?


I would also like your comments of the best yarns to use on the Knitting boards, I purchase one from ebay, just the board. I have purchased some bolts so that I can increase the gap. Had 1 try, not a good first attempt, I think this is a winter project.
