Loom Knitting News


Here are some of my latest creations for charities:]

These little guys are fun to make. Thanks to LoomaHat.com for teaching us how to make them. The big one I made on the KK 24 peg. The little one I did on my Martha Stewart 24 peg loom which is much smaller. It’s fun to see how different they turn out. I usually use up my scrap yarn on these.

 

Hey, everyone! Here is my very first needle knitted hat! I started with a provisional cast on and then alternated inches of purls with inches of knits and even cast off first with the circular needles, then finally on four Double Point Needles. Please allow me a moment of awesome pride. Okay. I’m over it.

 

So, my brother and my son said this looked more like a young lion. But it is a cow. This is one of Scarlett Royal’s inventions. Okay, so I should have used more tan color but this is what I had. I think a kid will like it. The curlycue of yarn on top is the bow holding the label telling about the Hat Hugger group I get the donated yarn from and who gives our creations to the charities.

 

This lion was fun to make but the mane is hard for me. I count to nine without knitting fairly well. Keeping track of nine rows of two seems impossible. So some lanks of mane came out too long. I just took some ribbons and tied them fancy like the Cowardly Lion in Emerald City. Notice the pink arm. I ran out of the yarn I used on the rest of the lion as I reached the last arm. Since these go to kids in the clinic I figured I’d give him a cast. Hopefully, this guy will find a kid with a cast to commiserate with.

 

 

This is many shots of the same dragon and his little hat for a baby sibling. He likes the mouse. He thinks he is supposed to ride on it. He’s just a baby dragon and doesn’t know better. By the way, the lion and the dragon are Scarlett Royal patterns, too. I love her minis best and the sheriff here in town as requested I make a lot of these as he loves handing them out to the homeless kids or kids at the clinic. Because they are tiny and are easy for the kids to hold and enjoy. If the sheriff wants minis I make minis, what can I say?

 

 

I really enjoyed making this hat and love how it turned out. It was made on KB white loom with the small gauge. I just did three knits and three purls (rib stitch) all the way to the top. Because of the small gauge, it took quite a while to finish. The yarn is bumpily but very soft. It has that gradual color change that works up so cool. I have a ton of this that I took from Hat Huggers because it is so soft. So I am making another one with smaller rib stitch pattern. I think this will make a good hat for someone who might have bad/no hair days. It’s so soft and fits low on the head. I have to admit I am tempted to keep it. I won’t. But I can wish.

Since the prompt of the day is any word that starts with inter-  and I wanted to share my newest interknitted interests.

20170506_171857

I think this one looks like a pixie or a brownie or something from Peter Pan. The green eyelash yarn interknitted with the brown makes it look like punk hair or pixie hair!

I still have a few projects that take a lot of time going on interspersing harder looming with easier looming so as to keep my hands from hurting. So I am still working on the sock that you’ve seen before, and a baby hat that is double interknitted. Another doll needs stuffing and sewn together.

If only there weren’t so many interruptions that make me interact!

Oh, and let me interject the person who caused this verbal intercourse: Linda G Hill!

New Special Friend


For my special friend.

She got a little camera shy in the end. By the way, the cell phone did it’s thing again. That hair is supposed to be magenta. Now I just need to figure out how to get these special friends together. I made her using LoomaHat’s Tiny Doll pattern and YouTube.

Here are the starts, continuings, and finishings of the day. Kind of a jumbled mess. Let’s see if I can sort this out.

This little guy is done. That string doesn’t belong to him.

This little guy still needs arms, a face, and a scarf to keep him warm. (the 2 is for how many rows into the arm I am.

Ribbing on the beginning of a purple hat. Haven’t decided what stitch for the body of the hat.

Middle of the basket weave rust hat. I am loving working with my oval loom.

On a different note (C#?), I am reading The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova. It is so intriguing that I had to keep my hands busy while listening. This was so inspiring that I had to run into my cold studio and play the piano for a while. I miss playing but that room is SO cold! Found out Kali either doesn’t like the piano (she doesn’t like noises, like cell phones, or computer, etc.) or it was too cold for her, too. The session was long enough to find that muscular memory could still get through a couple favorites. And my ear/eye heard a couple songs I had never played but felt the need, now, to learn to play them. Funny how time away from music makes me feel like I’m dying without it. Can’t wait for the room to get warmer so I can spend more time playing.

While leaving my studio I looked over at the trees. Yeah, the Christmas trees I couldn’t decide about before. Well, the lights don’t work anymore. So I have started the process of putting it all away. I will take the time to see if there is something I can do to fix the lights, otherwise, I will have to buy more by next year. This frees up the space for sofas. We really need sofas in that room for when family and friends come to visit. I know that within the month it will start getting warm enough to want to be in there more.

This little guy is here now.

These guys were unimpressed.

This little guy needs a face but he is farther along that his buddy still on the loom. I love making these Tiny Dolls. As you can tell by this picture my next project needs to be Getting a Grip (a new one) made.
