EFG driving me nuts

My efg sock looms is driving me nuts! I don't know if I am doing the stitches right or if I am suppose to be using two strands of yarn. I am using Knitpicks Parade sock yarn and it is so hard to see what I am doing,the yarn is small. Maybe I should have stuck with the larger looms! I went back to my bag on the yellow loom and I thought "my gosh , these pegs are huge!" I am making a bag that I plan to felt,it is in beige, brown and cranberry, I love the colors. Well, not much time for blogging now, have to get kids ready for school, the doctors visit and the weekend. I have tons of housework to do and I have my sister coming to visit :)

New Looms



Yes, I got my new looms today, I ordered the mini loom to make some small Christmas ornaments in hats, stockings and sweaters and the EFG Sock loom. I am so excited to get started on it. I did a little stocking at my son's baseball game, isn't it cute? Kel thought it would a good fit for his Power Rangers and asked me to make two! Off to bed for now, it is a crazy month for me with all the boys in baseball, working, single parenting, and life! Just feel like I am riding the wave sometimes!

Baseball Season






I am feeling guilty about not keeping up with my blog, I have barely been able to pick up a loom! I did manage to do one small wool bag that I plan to felt, I made a long strap for it, but will try to attach it drawstring style. The boys are in full swing with baseball season, we have either games or practices 6 days a week. I am dizzy just thinkin' bout' it! Lucky for me, I have a very good friend who helps get my oldest son to his practices and games. And, by the way,that oldest son of mine is turning 13 tomorrow! I dragged out my scrapbooking items and made him a cute card, I need to do another one as my best friends birthday is friday. Time certainly flies....I am waiting patiently for my fine gauge sock loom to come in, I was hoping to sneak it to some t-ball games and get started on some socks! In the meantime, the weather has been great, makes me want to get the dirtbikes out and have some fun! Here are my little guys, aren't they cute!
