Weeee,this is fun....

Yay! I made my friends son this cool hat. I came home from school and just started loom knitting again. I looks like it has these cool blue and green swirls coming from the top.
Its time to try to "Learn to Knit cables on Looms". I think I am ready now. I have to read through the instructions and I will check on youtube if there is a video. That would be great. So lets see how my next hat turns out. I have to make one for my son Ibraheem. I think I am going to make another money bag for my friend Maryam. Go to go now.

I made a red hat.....

I loomed knitted this cute litte hat for my friends daughter. I finally made a brim. I didn't do it before,I was just do lazy. But it really adds a nice touch. I really like the color red.

I am currently working on another hat on the yellow kk long loom. One thing that I have been enjoying is using the little loom tool to e-wrap. It cuts time for me and I can knit even faster. Since three come in pack I was able to give some to my loom kntting friends. You really can't find looms or loom notions here is Egypt. I have to go and wake up the kids for school.

Mini scarf...

Here is the mini scarf I am making for my mom. Pretty easy. I am using size US 11 Bryspun needles. I really love these needles. They are so light weight and smooth.

Still Loom knitting...

It has been a week that I have posted but I am still making stuff. I had the pleasure of using my KK Corker and it was fun. I loom knitted a little money bag and I corked the strap. I am going to this shop to get a cool glass button for the flap. Next I loom knitted a hat for my husband from supper scrappy scraps. It came out really nice and he is happy!
I have to check and see what yarns I have left to use. I have a half way done crocheted poncho. This is the only project I will have to purchase new yarn to finish. So I guess I will make that my last project My daughter Sumi loom knitted a little pair of mittens. I will give these to my friend's little newborn to keep his hands warm at night. She used the In The Attic thumb loom.
Finally, I decided to give the hat that was for me to my mom. I can always make myself another one. I was knitting a little scarf to go with it but I was to tired to finish it in time. I will try to see if anyone else is leaving to the US so they can put it in the mail for me. My hubby left this morning to America, I am missing him too much already. I love you sugar.

I finished my wrist warmers. I didn't realize how cozy this yarn was. I love it. I had just bought 2 little skiens. I made these on the In the Attic purple mitten loom. I just don't know how to make a hole for the thumb. Maybe I will search for it today because I want to make my sons a pair. They always wear my old ones from last year. I want to make a sort of camouflage combination. I have to look in my scrap pile. On to the next project.

These are for me....

I bought this yarn and I just didn't know what to do with it so it ended up thrown in my yarn basket. I needed a new pair of fingerless mittens and already one is done. I love these colors.

Still Loomknitting.....

I just finished making these colorful fingerless gloves for my daughter. Made with the In the Attic small 18 peg purple loom. These were actually for me. While I was on my second one, she tried the first one and said, "OOh, can I have these?". Of course I said and I already have the scrap yarn I will dig up to make one for me. This yarn is almost done. Come to think of it, I have to make one more hat for my big boy, and maybe 3 more fingerless mittens for chilly mornings while waiting for the bus. I don't want to hear complaining about how come mom didn't make me a pair. Well anyway, on to the next scrappy project.

Mood:Stressed /Solution:Loom Knit like a Maniac!

This is going to be a nice warm one for me. Can you believe its to wear inside my flat when those nights get really chilly. I started to make myself some fingerless gloves. There are too colorful but again, it's using scrap yarn. I have to get rid of this yarn. It's been in this basket too long. I started making a granny square something and I am going to go around and around with all the little scrappy balls of yarn I have left. Who cares what it will look like. It will probably look like a mess but crocheted very neatly and I can sit and watch tv and be warm. So what.

You know, sometimes I feel I want to get in a car and drive. I miss my family.

A hat for my little guy

It was fun loom knitting this simple hat. In the beginning I had made a huge pom pom. It was so funny, I had to get a scissor and trim it until it was just right. I am on my second hat now. I am digging out all this scrap yarn and making stuff with it.

I loomknitted "Lulu the loomknitted dolly". I forgot to stitch the mouth and bow. Doesn't her body look like a prescription pill? I found this pattern at "Bev's Country Cottage".
