Tag Archive: CinDwood X loom


Sunday


I finally finished the socks. I’m so sad that the colors don’t look the same even though they are the same yarn. But at least they are the same size.

While knitting, I enjoyed these two films among other programs.

I’ve always been a fan of the Dianna Ross version in Lady Sings the Blues. I was excited to see this one with her son on another side of the great Billy’s life,

Then I was walking through the bedroom, and my husband had on the TV there. I saw Craig Ferguson on and knew I had to watch this:

What a sweet movie with humor and Scotland! I highly recommend this one.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone! And

goodnight kisses

Finished Almost Friday


After many frogs, the second sock is nearly finished. I would guess it will be done on Sunday. It is funny how different the two socks with the same yarn came out. Still, they are soft bamboo cotton that will be fun in tennies or morning slippers. All I know is I will never knit four socks at a time on the CinDWood X-loom. It is just too unwieldy. I might, though, make a scarf, blanket, or shawl as there are so many pegs (248) to make a good-sized piece of fabric.

Sunday Funday, Mostly


After enjoying  CBS Sunday Morning, and may I say I am a Cindy McCain fan now. I mosied over to my Zoom service. I have missed the last few weeks. How does one miss a Zoom service when you don’t have to dress up and be somewhere? Well, one does have to wake up on time. And I haven’t lately. So it was fun and informative. I was convinced to order this book on Audible.

Then I spent the rest of the day knitting and watching free live Galaxycons that I had signed up for earlier. I found I will watch any of them, even shows I never cared for, as I love hearing the people talk about their times, learning about following their passions of acting. I even watched one about Goofy and Mickey Mouse voices and the Little Mermaid’s stars. Here is one of their commercials. Maybe the ones talking aren’t who you are interested in, but go in and see if they have some convention stars you might like to know more about.

 

So I put off this blog hoping to show you that I had completed a pair of socks. And though that is true, what I found at the latest sock was larger than the first one. After another count of pegs, I saw I had miss counted hence the larger-sized one. Now I have the decision to frog the big one and put it on the smaller-counted pegged arm of the CinDWood X-loom. Or Frog both and start over on another couple looms. OR make two more socks on the same two arms of the loom that the ones I just finished came off of giving me two pairs, one bigger than the other like this time. Decisions, decisions! I like the one sock. I don’t want to frog it. I hate working on the big loom, so I dread knitting two more socks on it. I think I can handle one more, so that is what I will do. Frog the big put on the lessor pegs, and hopefully, I will be done with the smaller pair soon.

Let the frogging begin!

Finished Friday


I wish I could say I have finished a whole pair of socks. Instead, I have to claim a sock and nearly another, minus the cuff. I think it is safe to say that the pair should be whole by Sunday.

I’m still teaching myself to circular needle knit a pair of toe-up magic circle socks. I’m giving up on the provisional cast-on. I think it isn’t the actual cast-on that bothers me; you aren’t starting at the tip of the toe but farther in. So my blog-friend at Missy’s Crafty Mess   shared her favorite cast-on. It does seem a lot more logical, so I’m frogging those again and trying this instead. Maybe I should call it Frogging Friday at this point?

 

It was a fun Friends Friday as my buds and I did our regular Zoom get-together. While we were chatting, our weather here went from sunny to a layer of snow. Now it is mostly gone. Sorry to the rest of the country that is getting overloaded with the stuff. We need lots more as our drought continues. But it was fun to watch this out my front window.

Ta-Da Tuesday


My brother gets Birthday socks!

Makings Monday


The looms and needles are busy. This pair of socks I considered my bedroom hobby. If the house was too cold, I could still have something to knit in the warm bedroom. Starting in the same place, same colorway, these two socks are so different. Still, I like the colors. I’m bringing them into the living room because I suddenly find myself drawn to them.

The CinDWood X(WING) loom is down a sock. So I am only featuring three arms of socks.

Here are the finished sock and its mate.

I think these will be my brother’s birthday present. I wish they fit me because they are so soft. But lucky for him, I think they will suit him. I’ll probably have the mate finished tomorrow.

 

Here are the triple frogged circular needle sock trials. The pink yarn is the provisional cast-on. The red metal thing is the needle holder. I love that little invention. On the cables are two toes. I think that frogging is coming up again as I can’t seem to manage that silly transfer that needs to be done. I shared the YouTube a couple days ago by VeryPink Knits; just look up 2 at a time toe up magic loop to learn how to do this before me. LOL! I don’t mind frogging once again to get the hang of it all the way through. That little bit below took me several days the first time. Finally, I can make a mistake within hours! ;-D

 

These last two socks I’m playing yarn chicken with. The purple/pink yarn is nearly out, so I mix it up with the blue/green. I kind of like the combo as it reminds me of a sunset over the water. The blue is for the heel and the cuff. There may be enough to make another pair of blue/green socks.

What are you making these days?

 

Finishing Friday


I have four socks on my CinDWood X loom. All inches from the heel, then cuffs. I like working in pairs like this. The yarn is soft. I had worked to nearly this point when I realized that they would be too large. I frogged them all and restarted.

These half-fingered convertible gloves have been sitting here as I was stuck. I asked the creator of the pattern and tutorial, Scarlett Royal, what to do next, but I guess she’s busy with all that’s going on right now. So I did a little research and figured the decrease wasn’t a wrap and turn but a moving one loop to the next peg and knit over. I figure that row by row decrease is to create an edge to sew up around the wrist area. Then the cuff follows. I’ll add the tutorials at the bottom.

 

By the way, I’m using the KB Hers loom rather than the CinDwood as they have the same amount of pegs and I can work in pairs.

In the next tutorial is the way to do the decreases. I did make a pair of gloves from this tutorial for my husband a couple years ago. I used the same yarn and they turned out very nice. I can’t seem to find a picture.
