  • I cannot find the info for the BUY 2 ZIPPY”S&GET 1 FREE Offer that is mentioned in the header on the Home page. I am interested in checking the offer out, please. Thanks.
    The Zippy is super cool, I have been making scarfs with the ruffle yarn, using just one. Made a neckwarmer in a short time today.

  • Hi Bonnie,

    When you put 2 Zippys in your cart the 3rd will pop in there. No coupon needed.
    Kim

  • Can I purchase zippy corner and 1 loom and get another loom for free or does it have to be 2 looms and get a third free.

  • Hi Ginny, This special is pretty much set and the bonus loom is automatic; it does require 2 zippy loom to be purchased. If you purchase 2 looms and 1 set of corners, it will automatically send you a free loom. Make the extra loom a gift or save it for another time. Thank you.

  • Love the new zippy loom. Its fun to use thanks to the cute smiley face. I love the ease of which projects can be made and that I can use either the hook or my fingers. The price is right and the possibilities are endless!

  • I love looming its my sanity! Would love to win a zippy loom

  • Can’t wait to use the Zippy. Love the thick scarf,

  • OMG I love my Zippy looms.. Would love 2 more.

  • I like the Zippy looms but is Savannah, GA it is to hot for me to use the thicker yarns what ever I make I have to send North to my family members that have lots of cold and snow so I have just pushed my Zippy to the side for the moment. I would like to see more ideas to use my Zippy Loom with lighter weight yarn

  • I covered another looms collar, but I’m sure it will be better zippy loom.

  • Love Zippy cannot wait to make many more projects.

  • Also I shared on FB

  • Just ordered Zippies for my grand daughters AND myself! Can’t wait to receive them, also I just taught them how to use the other looms and they love it! Their ages are 13 and 11

  • Oh boy! you will not know how much I love the new Zippy. Everything I make I donate to charity. I do not sell anything, I make just to let you know. I have 7 Zippy looms. I kinda changed the looms to fit my project I was going to do. So, I pictured the loom with my project which I was making a scarf. I need 400 scarves by fall. They have to go with all the hat’s that I already made.

  • Posted on Twitter. I love using the knitting looms here in the United States. They make the work go so fast. You don’t have to be concerned about rows becoming uneven, etc.

    Thank you,
    Patti Bublat

  • I have 2 zippy looms just as of the other day. Im already falling in love with them. Post shared on facebook. ?

  • These zippies are so much fun to use! Most everything I make is given away. Sharing this on Facebook.

  • Do we have to use the flower to embellish it or can we use anything we like?

  • Anything you would like :)

  • Isela,

    Does the pattern as written make a child’s-sized headband? If my calculations are correct the pattern makes about an 18″ circumference, does that sound about correct? Just curious so that I can attempt to make a headband that fits me, lol! Guard is not my string suit. ;-)

    Thank you for your assistance!

  • Guage…not guard. Silly keyboard!

  • Wish me luck. :)
    I send in some pictures.

  • I’m seeking for a skilled writer, extended time within this region. Superb write-up!

Drum Roll, please!

AFGHAN CONTEST WINNERS!!

As promised, we would like to share photos and stories, and patterns of the beautiful afghans submitted to us for the Afghan Contest.   Judging is hard work!    All entries  are   unique in the skills and original ideas  used.   So, let me share with everyone what we have based our decisions on. We have awarded points to each knitter in the following categories:

  • The look of the Afghan-is it something that everyone would love to knit and own?
  • Were the photos submitted clear and well planned?
  • Were the instructions complete, clear, easy to follow?   Did the knitter share enough to assist each knitter to repeat the design.   In some cases, it may be necessary for a new knitter to learn new techniques.
  • Is the design an original concept and idea of the knitter?
  • Did the knitter take a concept and expand on it to give their afghan that special, unique extra?

We have a total of 7 entries.   They are all winners, so special and unique!

First Place goes to Connie Mauger for her AJ’s Baby Blanket.   Congratulations!

connie_photo.JPG

Second Place has resulted in a tie.   Congratulations to: Annette Roa with a beautiful Kitty Afghan for her 4 year old niece, and Ella Roby with a unique design  with vertical stripes called”Stripes Afghan“.

robanne_photo.JPG      photo_lightblue_ella2.jpg

Connie Mauger’s AJ’s Baby Blanket is a  blanket that any little tot would love to curl up in.   Connie has used some wonderful techniques including the double 8 caston, cross over stitches, and beautiful crochet edges.   Her instructions contain lots of diagrams for following the stitch pattern that is repeated in each strip of the Afghan.

Annette Roa knit for her little 4 year old niece.   What child would not love all the adorable little kitties on this beautiful afghan.   It is knit with one repeated design completed 4 times in each of the 3 strips.   Each kitty is unique just by the choice of leftover yarn used.   This entry also has a beautiful crochet edge.

Ella Roby calls her afghan simply “Stripes”. We love this one because of the unique way that the vertical stripes were worked with the weaving of the different colors.   Ella does a great job of explaining the concept  with much detail.   The instructions are very well done!

Great El Paso Afghan was knit by Jacque Darra.   What a wonderful job on all counts.   Jacque uses 2 different stitches to create the warm look of this one along with lots of great fringe.   We also love that it was knit on a 38″ heavy duty board for a nice warm afghan with a lot of texture in just one piece.   The instructions are very easy to follow and this is important for all knitters.

Sue Kreitzer has once again come up with a wonderful afghan in unique  squares- The Fall Christmas Afghan.   What is so very special about Sue’s afghan is the theme that surrounds the whole design.   It represents  Christmas in the pretty red and green colors of the outer strips; Snow with the fleur de lis patterns on the green; and the     center strip  represents the season of Fall with the colors of the fallen leaves.   Thank you, Sue for your offer to donate your afghan to our Christmas donation box.

Ella Roby knit up another great one.   This one is called the Winter Afghan.   It is a pretty combination of stripes with the unique technique of vertical stripes.   Pretty winter colors make it feel very special.   Great job, Ella.

Another beautiful design by Annette Roa  was  a wedding gift with a rose pattern knit right into the afghan.   This one is knit in large squares with some of them showing the pretty rose pattern.

All AFGHAN PATTERNS  will be shown in the “files” catagory of www.groups.yahoo.com/group/knittingboards

Great Job by everyone and thank you all for sharing your afghan photos and ideas with all of us.   May you all have a wonderful Holiday Season.   Stay warm and keep the ideas coming for the new year.

If you are one of the winners please email Kim at kim@knittingboard.com with your address information.  All entries will recieve a one time 30% off discount on Knittingboard.com.  Please email for coupon ID.

It’s Finally Here!!

RALIWOOL.jpg

Such great names and so much fun just seeing what everyone came up with. We really had a tough time selecting a name.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much, everyone  who participated. We may consider some of the names for future use with some other yarns.  

This particular yarn has been tested  using several different fibers for durability, softness and endurance.

We decided on a  wool and mohair combination because of it’s great sturdiness and hand, and the results  of hand-dying are so beautiful. We worked with the tightness of the twist so that it would be soft, yet firm, and  would hold up well as rug yarn.

We thouhgt the name should be something short and catchy.

So here are the runners up:

“Stonewall” by Dora Renee Wilkerson

“Woolybully” by Michelle Barbour

“Barefoot” by Kristin

“Shannandoah” by Faith

“Woodlands” by Faith

“Praire” by Kim Cypers

All runners up will recieve 10% off first yarn purchase. Please email kim@knittingboard.com for your discount number for ordering.

We actually were inspired by 2 names that helped us come up with our new name. These were “Rugbee” by Evelyn Ayre and “MoWool” by Rita Miller. They will recieve 2 skeins of the new yarn.

Congratulations to all our winners!

So we kind of combined these to form a new word that means: A great rug yarn that is soft, durable, warm and very cozy –

Raliwool

Contest to name our RUG YARN!

rugyarnsample.JPGWe are looking for a name for our new bulky rug yarn. And we thought it would be kind of fun to make a contest out of it.The yarn is mohair/wool and will be offered in beautiful fall colors.

If we choose your name idea, you will recieve 2 SKEINS OF THE NEW YARN, your choice of color.

Please put your name ideas in  “Comments”

It will be so interesting to see what you come up with. Good luck!

Thank you, Kim
