I took the Leaf Dragon scarf thing off my loom. It wasn't turning out. The cats play with it now. I haven't accomplished anything on the sweater except for getting yarn to finish it.
What else.. I've found some patterns I'm excited to do. Loom Knit Granny Round by Kristen at GoodknitKisses by Kristen Mangus
Granny squares on the loom! I'll see if I can crochet them together. I cannot crochet worth a damn, I've been trying worth years. I still have hooks. I've given away my old books and stuff to people that can use 'em. I just can't do it. Like knitting needles, I try and try. Looms, it is! I have fun with them.
Here's what I want, but bigger. More blankets! Huge blankets. Warm blankets, winter is coming. And not green. I like colour. Blues, especially. The more the better.
So, winter is coming. Expect hats (touques), scarves, mittens and more. I'm expanding on my "mad skillz". Maybe I'll even write a tutorial.

I found a pink show blouse to go with it, but it was too damn small. Oh well.

It's actually an easy pattern. I love it. The colours actually mesh well and I think this is my favourite project I've done. I found the pattern on Ravelry (GO THERE) and it's an alternate wingspan pattern that blew everyone away with needles and was made available on the loom. I use looms, I suck with needles. The pattern is basic, using three stitches: e-wrap knit, purl, and half stitch. I did an e-wrap cast on and I'm doing a basic bind off. I used a 36 peg circle loom and I want to do it again with crazy rainbow colours on my 50 peg circle loom, and I want to make a poncho.
It's a great pattern and can be easily modified to make a scarf, a poncho, a wrap and more.
Here's the example off of the site:

A special glass cup is rubbed with a flammable liquid (most often rubbing alcohol, I use 70%) and lit with a torch, which can be anything from a BBQ lighter to a specially made torch with a cotton end. Immediately after lighting it, it is placed on the skin and the flame inside goes out and creates a vacuum pulling the skin up.
I've been firecupped a bunch of times and I've done it, too. It feels really, really good. The cups can be on very tight or loose. If you add baby oil or lubricant, you can move the cups around, which feels good too. It leaves red or purple marks for up to a week. It's great for loosening muscles.
My friend got kicked by a horse, so we firecupped her. It's painless. It feels good. She felt much better after. I find it very relaxing. Here are some pics.
