Warm and fuzzy...

Circular Loom Knitting! This is such an awesome gadget I found in Pretoria. It come in a pack of four different sizes (Elle circular looms). It works like the little wooden french knitters most of us had when we were kids, this is only bigger. Do any of you remember those? In Afrikaans we called it "tolletjie brei". Directly translated it would be "spool knitting" because back in the day, yarn spools were made of wood. They hit 4 nails in around the hole and there you had yourself a little french knitter. sorry I can't remember where I got this image.

Any case, I found this amazing wool called Monet and it looks just like a Monet painting. It's beautiful in colour and in texture and this is what I made....

It's such beautiful wool, it reminds me of one of my favourite  Monet paintings, Bathing at La Grenouillere, 1869. I just want to get lost in it. For more information on Claude Monet visit: https://www.artsy.net/artist/claude-monet
