So ... My goal is to make a blanket.
Before I even ordered my Long Loom Set, I had my Round Looms. I know if you skip the last peg and keep doubling back on yourself you'll get a panel. So.... I figure "I will use 5 skeins of yarn for each panel" No counting needed there, hah! Then at most I would be satisfied with slightly irregular edges as I am aware that each skein may not be perfect.
So I got my two panels done. And I set out to stitch them together. That in itself was me doing what I think is a basic crochet stitch along the seam. Well.... I get half way done when it dawns on me I forgot to ensure that both panels were facing the same way. I was doing e-wrap stitches on the loom. Each side of the panel looks different! Silly me... oh well... continue stitching....
Done! Wait a second!!!! That it a lot left over! Seems that I also forgot that not all skein are created equal regardless of apparent size & brand.
So... I now have my Long Looms.. Gonna try that for my next blanket attempt. I have measured out 5 skeins of yarn each to the same size and have pre-russian-joined each skein into a huge ball of yarn.
I just started, I don't have a lot of time for this project... so once a bit more is visible beyond the loom, I will post.
Wish me luck!
