Hello, my name is Leslie Wagner. I’m the hands behind Silver Lining Knitting.
I started loom knitting quite a few years ago, after giving up on needle knitting. (I just never could get the knack of it!) I enjoyed working on looms and made a few blankets for my family; but life got in the way, and my looms ended up in the back of a closet.
Fast forward to November of 2018, when I was diagnosed with lymphoma. I got out my looms, thinking this would be a good activity during chemo treatments, and when my energy was low from the side effects. I had a birthday just a few days after my first treatment, and my son bought me a book of Japanese knitting patterns. He was not aware that the patterns were written for needle knitting, but I thought they were so beautiful.
I resolved to figure out how to adapt the patterns to loom knitting. So I spent many hours watching videos, practicing new stitches, and (through a lot of trial and error!) learned to create these lovely patterns on my looms. It was a way for me to be productive even when I couldn’t be up and around much.
I hope to keep learning new stitches and creating more complicated projects in the future.
