lacey afghan off the loom

Finally, my lace-loomed afghan is off the loom!  I removed it just the other day.  This afghan is so soft, and will provide many hours of snuggle time for a very special newlywed couple.  It needs to be blocked for shaping.  The yarn I used was Yarn Bee Andes Alpaca in Pearl & Paradise purchased at Hobby Lobby.  Loom knitted on the CinDWood 5/8" gauge Universal S-Loom using a lace pattern I created.

lace-loomed afghan blanket

Here is the secret project I mentioned in my lace practice post.  It's an afghan I've been working on since last October.  It's almost completed, and will measure approximately 64"W x 78"L.  The recipients know about it and some loomers wanted to see it, so I thought it was about time for the reveal.  I'm looming this on a CinDWood 5/8" gauge Universal S-Loom.  This was a special order gauge loom Cindy manufactured for me.  She's brilliant.  Thanks, Cindy!  I created the lace pattern for this afghan.  Thanks all for viewing my blog and your kind comments.
