LoomTech column in LKC

The 2012 Spring edition of the Loom Knitters' Circle (LKC) e-zine is now available and packed full of creative patterns, features and other invaluable information. We even have our very own "loomy comics" called, Side Stitch, by a very talented young lady, Megan Dailey. (Note: past issues of LKC are available here.)

I'm always excited with the publication of each issue of LKC, but this current issue was very special to me. It was not only published on my birthday, April 15, but includes a new column that I will be writing called LoomTech. In each issue, I will focus on specific knitting techniques as they apply to the knitting looms and include a pattern that will allow the reader to "loom & learn" the featured technique. The current LoomTech article is "An introduction to slip-stitch knitting" as an easy way to add color to loom knitted projects. The slip-stitch technique is demonstrated with a project pattern dishcloth designed especially for the large gauge looms called "Bunnies in the Garden" (shown above). Once you get into the rhythm of the stitch pattern for this dishcloth, you can easily make one in about two hours (more or less). 

I would love to hear feedback and/or suggestions for future topics for the LoomTech column.
