I am so pleased!   I’ve been working with Donna and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge Looms to create some absolutely lovely new Heart Looms.

They are 4 inches and 6 inches and have a wider sett than the tiny 2 inch looms.

This means that you can weave thicker yarns, roving, fabric strips, t shirt yarn on them. Lots of eco-friendly options!

And on the 6 inch Heart loom, you can even weave potholder loops, too.

One of the first things that I did with them was to mend my much loved, and very well worn woven jacket by stitching and felting one of the hearts to repair a frayed section on the sleeve.

Here are the links to buy the looms:

My wonderful son-in-law suggested that I design and make a Bunny for the Teneriffe Lace Weave Along to celebrate Springtime and Easter.   He’s a genius!

I love Mermaids, so of course, I had to design a Mermaid for the Teneriffe Lace Weave Along.

There are several ways to make her- you can use either triangles or dewdrop shapes for her fins and you can do the more tightly shaped lower body on the left or the wider body on the right.

If you don’t like the ‘Fairy Hair’ option, you can use the Dewdrop shape for her hair.

Here’s the video showing how to make the Teneriffe Lace Mermaid:

The Teneriffe Lace Weave Along continues with a Teneriffe Lace Angel.

I have always loved paper dolls, and when I was designing this angel and the fairy from the previous 2 posts, I felt like I was making Teneriffe Lace paper dolls!

The Teneriffe Lace Angel can be hung in a window or on a wall or in a plant or a Christmas tree or they can become part of a freeform lace project or stitched to a bag or pillow or curtain or garment….

The sky is the limit…  wherever they take your imagination!

The components that are used to make the Teneriffe Lace Angel are all shown in how to videos in previous installments of the Teneriffe Lace Weave Along: L I N K S

Here’s the how to video:

I am thrilled to bits…. a lady on Ravelry found a link to Knitting Today archives.

This means that people who are looking for patterns for Edward and Anastasia teddy bears (that I designed for Knitting Today) can now get the patterns online.

Yay!

I can’t send them out because the publisher owns the copyright.

I did a LOT of designing for Knitting Today, so there are lotsa other patterns in there from me, too.

Here’s the link: https://archive.org/search.php?query=knitting%20today

I also searched for ‘Your Knitting Life’ which was a different title to the same magazine, and the Yellowstone Edward and Anastasia came up:

Happy knitting!
