Lace loom

I thought I'd post a bit of an explanation of the lace loom I got at Knit Nation.  This is the model I have, and here is a video explaining how it works.

I haven't used it yet, too many other projects on the go, but I've got some ideas for it and will post them here when I get to them!

This is my first project using yarn acquired at Knit Nation.  The pattern is Glows by Laris Designs and the yarn is 100% Merino Superwash from Wollmeise in Johannisbeer und Brennessel, which translates as Redcurrant and Stinging Nettle.  Being a fine yarn on small needles, with lots of cables etc, it's quite a fiddly project, but I'm really enjoying it anyway.  It's also the first time I've worked from a chart rather than a written pattern, which is interesting to say the least!
