Tag Archive: Loom Knitting



I had hoped to be finished with these two project by today. Oh, well. I love the soft yarn, Bernard Pipsqueak. I’m making a small adult hat. The other is a slipper sock of Sugar and Cream cotton purple for cuff and for the rest of the sock a combination of blues and purples. Ah, well, maybe next week I will be finished with these.

The above double toy (finished today), from following instructions Denise of Loomahat.com on this YouTube tutorial:

Though I like making the blanket and getting better at it, I don’t like sewing on the bits and pieces. I think they are cute and I think someone will find comfort in this toy, I need a break. And I bet you guys need something else to look at here.

But I had to share the toy because of the prompt for today’s challenge of the Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Thank you Linda G. Hill for the fun prompts!

Frogged


I was nearly finished but the bind off was too tight! Bah!

Made (Making) Monday


I finished these cotton slippers for my friend today. Now I have to wait until payday to send them. KB His and Hers looms, followed by the how-to YouTube.

Meanwhile, I’m in the middle of making these hats:

 

Another Finished Project


The yarn was a fuzzy mohair type (there was no label on this donated yarn). The loom was the fine gauge small (toddler) KB. The pattern was my own invention. Brim two by two ribbing the rest 1 row flat knit stitch, 1 row U-wrap, 1 row e-wrap, 1 row purl, and then what I hear is called an upper purl where you take the flat working yarn down through the loop on the peg and bring only the resulting loop over the peg leaving the first loop where it was. It gave a bit of a textured stripe. ??? I don’t have a model to put little hats on. This one I used my coffee cup. In this first picture, the brim is down.

But the brim looks kind of cute up, too.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Thursday Threads


These are the finished products I can share for today. There are lots of little bodies that need to be stuffed, sewn and eyes I need to finish by Saturday.

The doll was made on the purple KB loom (24 pegs). He is about five inches tall. I have changed how I make the arms as I just use the four pegs that line up over the middle of the legs. I knit those four back and forth until I have about 31 rows then pull the first row back on the pegs and knit together. The rest of the doll is according to LoomAHat’s instructions:

The little hats are on the white KB loom following the instructions that came in the package.

Authentic Knitting Board KB8200 KB Baby Knit Looms 3/8" Gauge

I love the finer gauge of these looms. It takes longer but the results are nicer. I think. \

Besides the body parts to sew, I have several new projects starting:

This is an adult hat on the left on the larger KB loom and the one on the right is another baby hat. The colors are off in the pictures. The adult hat has two strands, an olive green strand and variegated lighter green to beige. The baby hat is pinkish orange that is SO soft.

 

This is a HERS of the KB HIS and HERS sock that looks the color of a 50/50 ice cream bar.

 

This is my 10-Stitch done on just a piece of the Martha Stewart kit. I have gotten bored with this one and frogged it several times. I may make just a lap-ghan elderly or frog again and give up on something that large and stick with toys and hats. I do like the color combo here, though.

Finished Friday


I am SO happy! I finished MY short socks! And they fit!!!

They are so comfortable!

 

This is the loom I used.

 

This is all the yarn that was left! I got crazy toward the end hoping I’d have enough. But it worked out! These will feel cool in sneakers or croc. Yes, I wear those ugly things around the house. They are so comfortable, they make my back and legs feel better.

By the way, the pattern I used was loosely based on this:

 

Finished Friday 20190322


With all that has been happening this week, and the constantly changing weather, here is one thing I can feel good about:

A little, soft newborn hat.

KB Baby Hat loom. K2, P2 brim. Flat stitch knit, LoomaHat’s Decrease Bind Of. See below.

Happy Friday, everyone!

All’s Good Sunday 20190310


If you are seeing this, it is because I am writing this on my Acer that is now working again. This is my inner spirit:

So today was about starting the next hat on a bigger loom.

Sorry I can lighten the picture as my old editor isn’t here. The brim is too dark in this picture. But it is almost the length that I fold it up and continue the hat.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

 

Thursday Hats 20190307


I actually finished this hat a couple days ago but forgot to post. It is made on this loom and just the same yarn as a few before. I love the stuff! It is soft and not too thick so I think it will be okay for spring and sensitive heads. Here are the current Work In Process and the one I just finished. Just flat knit stitch and fold up brim.
