Dozens of Little Squares

Notes

Using scrap fingering and maybe some sport yarn to make pin loom woven squares. They are woven on the bias. Maybe I will make them into a blanket. Maybe that is way to ambitious! joy Right now I’m making squares and will figure that part out later.

My loom is from Hazel Rose Looms. I have a heart shaped one and a square one.

I’m up to 39 squares after a fun and productive a trailer rally trip. These make a great take along project.

11-19-2023

40 squares were washed last week after the trailer rally. Now today I washed 43 more squares--about half made while at a conference or on route. (Long drive both ways!)

Total of 83 squares so far.

Another 30 squares in the last couple weeks. It looks like the Weird Sisters Wool Emporium mini skeins are getting me about 11 or 12 squares each. I’ve finished the light purple and I’m getting close to finishing the dark purple.

In addition to the 83 squares that are washed, I now have 67 more squares in the jar where the unwashed squares are being stored.
Total as of today: 150 squares

211 squares all washed and ready to sew together!
I actually used up all the sock weight leftovers and the minis. (Some I bought from Weird Sisters and some that Marsha sent me.)
So now it’s time to start to sew them together into strips. I’ll add more squares as I finish other projects and have leftovers. But I’d like to get these sewn together.

02-11-2024

Finished all the new squares and sewed all the strips. Ended up with 20 strips of 14 squares on 2/12/2024. Started sewing the strips together this morning. Sewing using the tails and then at the same time I’m weaving in the unused ends.
