Looms & Finished Hexagon Blanket

The other day, I had to try out my niece's knitting loom, just to make sure I can do it well enough to show her. (No sense in having Auntie buy her something that her Auntie can't even use!)

I think I'm definitely going to have to pick myself up a set whenever JoAnn's sends off another 50% off coupon in the mail. The only thing about these knitting looms is that they're a pretty large guage so you have to use really chunky yarn, which for a child isn't necessarily a bad thing.

On the flip side, I *finally* finished the Japanese hexagon blanket. Or actually, I cut it off short, because I ran out of a specific color of yarn, and I was almost done with it anyways, plus I didn't want to have to send off for ONE skein of yarn. Consequently, I edged it and can consider myself DONE! Yaay.
