I am active on Ravelry now

Plushy Slippers socks

I am very busy know. I am an active member in Ravelry which is a community for sharing patterns on knitting, loom knitting and crocheting. I was accepted on December but really started a project this January. It is a pair of socks with Isela's group Loom Along, which start a project every month. I loomknitted it in the blue round KK, I finished one of the socks and I am showing it here.
And I also finished this twisted scarf. This time, instead of finger knitting, I loom knitted it in the purple KK loom. I followed instructions from Anke Van Dorne a dutch lady who loomknits beautifully.

Pinwheel Baby Blanket

Here is the picture of another Pinwheel Blanket in blue that I made for a just born nephew, Diego, whose parents live in Spain as the mom is from there, so I loom knitted my favorite baby blanket and here is the picture. I could not give it to him personally as I had the flu and did not want him to catch it.
The pattern of this blanket was designed by Denise Layman, this is the third time I loom knit this blanket and just love it.

My holidays

On December 26th I traveled to Simi Valley to visit my daughter and we had such a great time! We went to visit the Getty Museum which is beautiful and has so many pieces of art. I was impressed with all the paintings, especially one by Van Gogh. I took pictures of it and I took pictures of my daughter, my son in law and my nephew, who came from France

My daughter Gabriela outside the Getty Museum. Notice her Magic Scarf loomed by mom.(that is me)

My nephew, Jean Sebastian and I. He came from France to visit

At night outside of Getty Museum. Notice the magic scarf which I loomed and Gabriela's fingerless gloves, which I also loomed.The scarf I was wearing, I bought it online and the gloves too I really liked them,but I lost one that day and my purpose starting this year is to learn to loom Karen's (creativity)gloves.

Midge Scarf exchange

It has been quite a while since I last posted in my blog, two months to be exactly, but it is because time flies, or is it life that flies away? Anyway here are some pictures of the midge scarves I made the purple one which I sent to my partner in the Christmas exchange from my looming group. And I also got from her, June (Loom_lady) a really nice one and some dishcloths very pretty. I also loomed a blue one as a gift and I even made one in Tunisian Crochet with Christmas colors. This kind of scarves are so comfy and you really can wear them with any kind of wardrobe. The pattern is available at Isela's site,scroll down and in the right side look for scarflette in the "free loom patterns section". Don't forget to leave a donation as Isela has done so much for us loom knitters.
