I bought this VC print and didn't like anything I tried crocheing with it. But when I put it on the zoom loom, it turns into a pretty plaid look. I like it!
Then I had this other stuff, labeled bulky, that is a riot of oranges/pinks, crinkly kind of yarn that I picked up at an LYS once and never knew what to do with. It's too bulky to use on the zoom loom, so first I did the winding with black DK that I had in stash, then wove in the colorful stuff. This is cool, would make a nice scarf.
But look what happens when I put this same weirdo yarn through the zoom loom. I still have to figure out how to join these little squares, but when I do, I'm going to join them in black. I think it will make a lovely little blanket.
That's just me playing around with my new toy when I have a few spare moments, or just need to go hide in a corner for a few minutes. LOL, it's giving me hope for yarns in my stash I've stared at with intense dislike.
Here is my "pin loom" board on Pinterest, with so many wonderful ideas and links to instructions.
