Yarn Habit, Again and Again

I recently discovered knitting looms, otherwise known as round knitters, knifty knitters (and, for the four-pin ones, knitting nancy). Provo Crafts makes the set I purchased (it was on sale!!) yesterday called Knifty Knitter. What got me interested in these was this pattern that features *gasp!* an honest-to-gosh turned heel done on the round loom. I have wanted to knit socks forever, and I’ve tried on more than one occasion – but the double point needles get me everytime – I just can’t seem to manipulate them successfully.

I’m now about two-thirds done with a slipper using that pattern, including successfully turning the heel. It’s not as elegant as the picture (practice!) but it’s a heel. If I can manage some pairs of slippers successfully, I’ll be chomping at the bit for this – an extra fine gauge sock knitter. My dream of actual socks, knitted by me, slowly comes to reality…

In the meantime, I have plans to make more hand knitted gifts for Christmas this year, since the knitting with the Knifty Knitters just flies due to the bulky weight yarn. It’s also not as tiring for my hands as regular knitting or crocheting. Hats, scarves, slippers… sofa pillows, baby blankets (one of my friends is expecting her first baby any day now, and in fact may already have given birth… she’s in Germany). I love yarn…
