How has 2021 worked out for you? Quite a roller coaster, wasn’t it? But here we are.
My 2021 no-stress patchwork project has been repurposed to become a regular project . I’ve enjoyed weaving up single skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca, and I still have one and a half skeins to go. I will keep it “no stress”, weave up the remaining yarn for more hexagons to join the 200+ that I have so far. Then … I think those hexagons will become a “cape blanket”: A round blanket with an opening along the radius, so that it can be worn like a cape.
With that, my “official” 2021 projects turned into one-weavie coasters! These coasters are also meant as an encouragement to those of you who had big plans this year, but then life happened. Whatever you have, and even if it is just one weavie, call it your 2021 project and enjoy!
What about 2022? Another no-stress patchwork project … absolutely! I will start by putting together sample hexagons from yarns that I tried out, and leftover hexagons from some projects.
But there has also been increased interest in doing more temperature blankets. If you would like to learn more about that, consider joining us on Facebook (any pin loom is fine!)
2022 promises to become a good pin loom weaving year with lots of inspiration. This will be the first year with four (!) Little Looms publications, and each of them will contain at least one hexagon pin loom project. The first one might already be in your mailbox, so fasten your seatbelts!

It is always exciting at the beginning of the year to contemplate what the coming year will bring. Thank you for all the encouragement and inspiration you bring to our Facebook group.
On the one hand, the beginning of a new year is “just the next day in our lives”, but it sure is a good time to reflect and to plan.
Thank you for your enthusiastic pin loom community participation, I enjoy following your contributions and see your creations!
I left my pin loom alone during 2020 & 2021. I’m going to get it out in 2022, finish the squares I’ve been making on the loom. Since mine are square, I was thinking of doing EXACTLY what you described, only in a large square! Thanks for the reminder of my little loom!
Laurel, this is WONDERFUL! I’m looking forward to seeing your square grow!
