Loom knitting

A new year a new adventure. I’m learning how to knit on a loom. I’ve seen it before but never tried it. So, I’m knitting a hat to go with the scarf I’m knitting.

I decided to learn because I hate knitting in the round. Had I known that it was going to be this easy I would have learned years ago.

I started my hat on a 29cm circular loom. Turns out that is a little big for my tiny head.

So I frogged the yarn and started over on a 24cm loom. This one looks way better.

Less than an hour later I have the brim done and I’m working on the hat part of the hat.

I think I’m going to like this project.

Happy New Year

Sorry for not posting in a while. I’ve been distracted by the new year and getting some new projects out of the way.

It started with a soap sock. I knitted it with a wool yarn. I’m pretty excited about that. 

Now I’ve started on a new hat and scarf set. I’m hoping that the recipient of this project likes it.

I also crocheted my mother-in-law a hat and scarf set. I hope she likes it. I’ll send it off at some point.

And today I will crochet the first row of my temperature blanket. I’ve had so much going on.

For some reason I’ve been binge watching harry potter. It’s a good movie to knit to because I’ve seen it so many times that I don’t actually need to watch it. I can just listen. It’s been a good year so far.

Happy new year.
