I made something else

Still no knitting going on here, but I did work up another bit of weaving. This could be another coaster, or a doll blanket, or an area rug for a doll house. My g'daughter will probably abscond with it, and the tied off ends will probably unravel, as the instructions were rather vague about how best to finish things up.

The travel knitting may devolve from socks to golf club covers, which are rather sock-like. I may even knit them "toe" up, with a bit of Fair Isle. What say you?

I made something

My knitting mojo appears to be on summer vacation, even though it is only May. Meanwhile, I bought a toy loom and have been playing with that a bit.

This is a coaster, I guess, with fringe. I thought using the frame itself for the sides was a smart move, but while that kept the sides straight, it also meant more threads to tie off.

My SO and I will be traveling soon, and I'm contemplating what knitting to ignore take along. Even if there is no hotel knitting, there undoubtedly will be airport and airplane knitting. I'm thinking an easy pair of DK socks.
