Wingin’ it!

Happy New Year! Well, I have been celebrating the New Year with mass consumption of chocolates and lots of knitting. Of course, all of my current knitting projects are top secret crafty Christmas presents and the projects that I have completed can’t be posted yet because they haven’t yet reached their intended destinations. This is pretty much all I can give you… My kids are high on the rubber band bracelet craze. Rainbow loom, Crazy loom, whatever you want to call them, the kids have been asking for them. I knew that they were getting looms for Christmas, so I started checking out Pinterest for different pattern ideas. While I was searching, I found a pin where someone stuck two thumbtacks on a wine cork to make a portable option for making single and fishtail bracelets. I grabbed what I had lying around the house and made one. I handed it to the kids with one of my crochet hooks and they were in business, cranking out bracelets left and right! They even made me some!

I am becoming a pro at this!

Then they got their looms and started making more involved patterns. They still prefer to use my crochet hooks over the plastic ones that are included with the looms though. Here is a great place to find tutorials for various bracelet patterns.
