2020 Pin Loom Mystery Weave-Along — Week 5

Welcome to Week 5!

We’re getting close! Watch our photo presentation on Pinterest grow, and look at some of the Mystery Guess contributions … bags of all sorts are a very popular pick, but we also had some very “interesting” ideas, from apron to walrus!

Goals for this week:

This week’s theme is to “getting things right”. Besides taking time to check our previous work, we will optionally explore the “right” and “wrong” side of a pin loom project. While the mystery project is designed in a way that it comes out “right” without paying much attention, this is a good opportunity to look at the basics of fabric sides, and we are using Saori-style weaving to help us easily identify what to call the “right” side.

In this week’s video you will find the story of some Mystery Guess contributions, and also examples for how to weave-in the yarn snippets for our Saori-style weaving:

Let’s chat and discuss in the groups!

2020 Pin Loom Mystery Weave-Along — Week 4

Welcome to Week 4!

Can you believe it? We are half way through our weave-along! Our Pinterest board shows the progress in pictures, and if you want to see very long strips of beautiful colors and joins and even more very long ropes – a variety thereof – check out our Week 3 Pinterest Board for review.

Goals for this week:

This week’s theme is to “go over and up”. We’re starting to add weavies using horizontal joins, like joining rows to rows.  Optional, there’s a little bit silliness when I ask you to draw a picture of what you think the mystery will be!

For your enjoyment, there’s been a lot of show-and-tell worthy material from Week 3 that I’m sharing in this week’s video, along with a walk-through of Week 4 instructions (partly blurry … sorry):

2020 Pin Loom Mystery Weave-Along — Week 3

Welcome to Week 3!

By now, we have used each of our colors at least once. It was so interesting to see the different effects of all the weavies, sewn together, during Week 2! And then there are of course the optional 2020 squares and hexies …Take a look at our Week2 Pinterest Board.

Goals for this week:

This week’s theme is to “make long things”, we’re going to put all six weavies into one long row, and there’s an optional assignment to make … a rope.

Doors are Open!

I would like to invite all yarn lovers to our first Berroco “Virtual Yarn Tasting” for the new Spring/Summer 2019 yarns and patterns collection.

virtualyarntasting avatar 010519“Yarn tasting” means sampling new yarns and talk about them, discuss the new patterns for those yarns … and prepare for a great season of scrumptious warmer weather knitting and crocheting. Most importantly the goal is to have a good time together.

It is my honor to moderate this conversation in a Facebook group, co-hosted by Berroco’s Media Director Amy Palmer.

The group is now open. Over the next 2-3 weeks there will be videos and chats to introduce and explore the new yarns.

Please join in, and also feel free to share this invitation with anyone who loves yarn!
