What to do When it Snows

If you are on the east coast like me you will probably be spending some time indoors this weekend. I have lots of things to do. Some not so much fun (cleaning and laundry) but many fun things too.

I have tried to learn to knit since I was a teen. Looks like that’s going to be one of those things I can never do well. Two years ago I got this as a Christmas gift. I’ve wanted to knit socks forever. So this loom is the only way that will happen.

I hope to spend some quality time with this loom and have something to show you next week.

I took a little trip to my local Joann because thread was on sale and I needed some Gutermann. The fabric seems to be getting better there. I’ve never been a fabric snob I’ll use anything that is good quality, don’t care where it comes from. I really do like some of the new stuff I’m seeing. So I had to get these chevrons and dots but like I promised I used my gift card. I don’t want anyone to think I went off my fabric diet. Lol

Those of you in the path of the storm be careful. Stay indoors if possible!

I do hope the storm won't be as drastic as they are hinting at. Glad you are all set to stay warm and cozy in your house.
That's a big loom! I remember spool knitting when I was a kid, this looks similar just at a larger scale.
And those fabrics -- they are wonderful! Sounds like a great day thread shopping!

Hope the storm behaves itself and gives you a good roar without real damage!

Those are pretty! Congrats on scoring them!

Stay safe. Here in Cornland, Indiana...we get blizzards of Biblical proportions!

Sew lots and have fun!

I am happy to be snowed in to sew. We are in the 4-7" range.
I am really curious about how you are going to knit socks on the loom.....

You can call your weekend a Snow and Sew! I hope it doesn't become an annual event. Looking forward to seeing your progress with your loom.

I'll be watching your loom sock project with interest. I can knit but I cant do socks although I'd love to.

The east coast storms are even making the news over here so they must be pretty awful. Stay safe!
