Craft From The Past
Was it first grade, second grade? When did we make potholders on a loom in school? I remember making some blue and white ones for my Mom. She used them for years.
I've been clearing out my closet a bit in anticipation of moving into my new and improved closet. I came across my old metal potholder loom. Wow! Of course, I didn't have any loops, so I ordered some. You can buy wool, cotton or synthetic loops. I ordered some wool loops and some polyester ones. The polyester loops are in hot, modern colors. The wool loops are slightly more traditional looking.
I have so much old yarn, I'm wondering about using this same little loom with some bulky yarn and just tying up all the ends. I keep you posted on my progress.
