I made this royal blue scarf- (needle knit)and a loom knit hat. I just love the pom-pom. I also made the pumpkin tunisian crochet scarf with a crocheted hat. I reallty want to loom knit another hat in the pumpkin color. I like to make projects using different techniques. It's so much fun this way. The crocheted hat is a free pattern from Michaels.

When I first heard about knooking it was about 5 years ago. I thought it would be easy to learn this new technique. But at the time I was not ready for it. Now with the help of YouTube I am finally getting it. I also learned that its really popular in Europe. They even have metal knooks. This piece became a hat. I am going to learn how to purl soon. I also made a knook from a long wooden I had to use with bulky yarn.

I was so happy to buy the Zippy Looms from KB in Joann's. Darn, they cost 8 bucks a pop. I bought five because I really want to make this cool shawl that everyone is making. I was so happy that I had all these coupons and I got them for half the price. I have to wait until I get paid to buy the yarn. They are so cute and remind me of toys. Three together is almost as big as my blue Knifty Knitter.

This blog has so much patterns, including the shawl. I really want to try to make a jacket.
I can't believe I haven't posted in a while. I have been teaching a class in Michaels and we have been making so many projects. Also, I have been trying to get all the Loom Knitting books I can because some of them are going out of print. So if you find one, buy it and keep it. I was recently saddened that I could not find a purple Knifter Knitter loom with 48 pegs. They have officially been cleaned out. There are two on ebay and the current bids are over $100. I also can't find In the Attic looms anymore, production stopped years ago and I just can't find them anywhere. Anyway. I think I am going to buy 2 looms from www.cindwoodcrafts.com. I can find a 48 pegs loom there and an S loom with a wide gauge.

I used the Loops & Threads sock loom with Patons Socks yarn in Clover Colors. This is a very inexpensive loom that I bought with a coupon at Michaels. I bought this new hook by KB. It has a fat grip that is amazing and a nice pointy tip perfect for socks. I took the little plastic tube that wraps around the tip of the pic and used it as a small yarn guide. It was smooth sailing with that little thing. I am done with my hat and because it is small gauge the e-wrap stitch came out nice.
