Looming Fingerless Mitts

The above video shows you how to make the awesome fingerless mitts Anna W made (please scroll back to the previous post.  This video is a bit long, but it's pretty easy to skip to the point you need to see for the next step in the pattern.  You have to over look her bird must be tweeting as she's talking and some of the time it's hard to see, as the camera work isn't the best; but.......with that said it's helpful and I think you can still follow it.

The link to her written pattern is HERE

These are especially nice, as they really extend up the arm and would be warmer than short ones.  I asked Anna for the pattern she used, plus.......I know many folks use those looms, so wanted to share this.

Sorry folks for the gap here on the blog with posts.  I was out of town unable to post for longer than expected.  Then once back, had too much catch up to do.  AND sadly there were some spamy comments to deal with.  Thank you Sandie P for letting me know.  I was able to get them deleted.......so we can now get back to business here on Bridge and Beyond.

Thank you all for patience.  It's hard to believe kids are back in school.  Where did summer go?  It seems with each passing year, it goes faster...the sad part of that.....to my way of thinking, we know bad weather isn't probably too far off.  AND I like summer, am not a fan of cold, winter or the white stuff.  Pretty sure our Homeless Friends aren't fans of it either.  

So if you're one who likes to take summers off with your knitting and crocheting...I fear it's time to gear up again folks.

Again Thank you Anna for sharing the pattern you used as well as the video.  Much appreciated.  And thank you Sandie for alerting me about the spamy comments.

**The counts on our progress bars are current. All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.


  1. Glad to see you back, Sandy. I have looms which have been sitting sadly in a bin for a very long time. I'll have a look at the video and see if I can figure out how to do this as I've been wanting to learn looming. Thanks for sharing it.

    1. I need to find my looms too, I think there here somewhere. Had them for a long time. So am not certain.

  2. Glad to see you back! I always enjoy looking at all the goodies as they come in. I'm one who tends to take summer off, but its already starting to cool down here again (ugh) so I'll pick it up soon.

    1. I'm with ya on the ugh starting too cool down. Was under 60 here this am. Had to on a long sleeve sweater when I got up.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
