Been Awhile

It has been quite a while since I posted anything. I have had so much trouble sitting and standing for hours on end doesn't make you want to stand more to do one of these updates, but today I am going to work on one.

I have done very little looming. I just find it hard to stand and loom and as I said sitting is still one of the hardest things in life to do. I just hate feeling like I am handicapped but at this point I am. Picking up stuff that I drop is like trying to swim in quicksand, just about impossible. Oh I manage but just.

So someone posted a link to a pattern (on a yahoo group), that I took and interest in. Not because I want to do the pattern, it is needle knitted not loomed, but because the idea of translating the increases of M1 and Kfb of stitch. I have never been able to figure out that M1, but Isela passed on how I might accomplish this one. I have started playing with it and shall soon see how that one works.

As for the Kfb (thats knit in front and back of stitch for those who do not know), I think I may have found the way to do that one also. I still need to play with it a little bit but if it works out ok then this is one more plus for doing needle patterns on a loom. I just don't have enough will right now to stay the miles for playing with these.
