A place to share...

It has been a few years since we all began this wonderful KnitWit journey and we are all thankful that God has taken us along on the trip!!!
This blog has been started so we can share ideas and encouragement in this craft. Loom Knitting is seeing its resurgence in popularity. And for those who are new to this, pattern reading can seem a daunting task. We have all learned so much from each others' unique designs...

So, please chime in!
