Tag Archive: Loom Knitting


Made it Monday


Well, I picked up this cute little loom on Wish. It was cheap so I thought it would be fun to try. That and it was cheap!

 

Cute, huh? I put it on the keyboard so that you could see how small it is. There was a learning curve. I may have ripped out one nearly whole sock and reknitted, then frogged again. Ugh! I don’t blame the cute little loom. I blame the soft wonderful yarn that separated sometimes and caused little fuzzballs.

Then the worst thing! Right at the toe of the second sock, I ran out of the gray yarn. Ugh, again! But I found this red homespun type yarn that was as soft as the gray yarn. I couldn’t find anything that l matched so I figured a contrast might pull it off. The gray was yarn from my daughter and the socks are for my son. I think he likes them. And they fit!

If he were a little kid that red toe could differentiate right and left foot. But a grown man in his forties. I’ve got nothing. He said thank you. I shouldn’t have. “Mom, you already made me a hat.” I hope he likes them. He did like the first one and said it was soft and would be nice to wear in the evening while watching TV. So he’ll be comfortable and no one will see the red toe and make fun of him. It’s a possibility. Hey, look at that! I was able to use the prompt for Just Jot It January! Oh, and he did take them with a smile. There’s that!

What I’m Doing


Just change that to knitting/loom knitting. And don’t you feel like throwing things at the TV when this interrupts the flow? I gotta lay down in the middle of a count to pick up both remotes cause it is never the right one first. Then I have to go back and figure out what I was doing. Usually, that means I have to tink back a stitch or two. If only Netflix could see how counterproductive this is! Oh, and if I am using it to help me sleep, this wakes me back up. Can we sue for our own sanity? Please!

And back to the loom. See ya all soon!

Sh-h-h Elves Be Busy


Another sock.

Is it really a cowl for a small elephant?

Jeweltones?

But it is soft!

Soon this will make a pair.

Finished Friday


Another pair of wool socks on the CinDWood 1/4″ gauge, 56 pegs. Toe-up using the following as my tutorial. They are a little big for me, closer to shoe-size 9. With the size and ankle just improvising. Two-by-two e-wrap/purled ribbing.

Pretty proud of this gray on gray hat. Needle knitted, purled and knitted according to whim. Vaguely I followed this pattern:

.

I hope it isn’t too blurry.

 

I will probably finish this sock tonight. Again, it is using the above tutorial for the toe-up method. Not as easy on the KB Sock Loom. I like the strength of the metal pegs but the shine makes it hard to see. I love the wood, but the pointed corners make holding it harder on the hands. And the rectangle shape make the toe-up Kitchener hard to keep untangled. Still, using an acrylic worsted yard means less knitting to get to the final product.

As the storm clouds gather, I remain happy for my accomplishments. I will need to whip out lots of hats for the charity, Hugger Hats, the need is great. So sock #2 will have to wait for a few quickies.

Have a great weekend!

 

Warm Will Happen!


I finished my matching cowl! Bernet Baby yarn. It’s self striping. I used the garter stitch on the orange, small-gauge, KB with 80 pegs! Now I kind of can’t wait for cold weather! Don’t know if I care that these aren’t my colors. Warm and soft win!


According to our fearless leader, Linda G. Hill, here are today’s instructions: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is β€œ-tast-.” Find a word that contains β€œtast” and use it in your post. Enjoy!

I’m feeling fantastic. What makes me feel this way? What leaves me with such a good taste in my mouth? The feeling of accomplishment. One more sock finished!

I am totally addicted to loom knitting, especially socks. They are so cozy and warm. This pair is going to the charity with the mate once I make it. I’ve been buying some of my own yarn to make my own. These socks feel so much better than store-bought. They are feet-tast-ic! When I finish the second of the pair I will put in the YouTube tutorials for each part of the sock. Meanwhile, I am trying to learn how to make them on needles, too.

How am I going to get to my writing if I can’t stop knitting long enough to NaNo? I barely drop the yarn long enough to write the blog. Anyone else have this problem? Clashing of passions?

 

Unfinished WIPs


No internet for a 24 hours. I shouldn’t be using my data. But… Unfinished projects. Will any be ready for Finished Friday?

A pair of men’s socks.

Another doll.

A baby hat.

I frogged my 10-stitch. Just didn’t like how it was tturning out.

An adult hat.

Another sock, another loom.


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!
