Knit Knot

I finished a hat for DH from the Knifty Knitter largest round loom (that would be the yellow one) using Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky in a dark green and charcoal, using the two yarns together. The wide spacing of the pegs means that the fabric is rather thin with just one strand, even of bulky yarn. Of course, this was supposed to be a super-warm winter hat – one strand would be adequate for other projects where less warmth is required.

I previously made a baby hat for a friend’s baby using the red (medium) loom and two strands of Lion Brand Jiffy yarn. On the smaller loom, the two strands of Jiffy made a perfect fabric, thick but not too thick.

I’m really hooked (ha ha!) on these looms. I really want the set of rectangle looms to play with now. The knitting goes really quickly and it seems to be easier on my hands and wrists than regular knitting (which often leaves my hands/wrists fatigued). However, I have a project in 100% wool on regular needles now, to be made into a felted mat for my spoiled cats. They love lying on the wool rug we have in by the front door, so I figured I’d make them their own mat for their cat bed. It’s just a big rectangle so the knitting is going quickly. I used Lion Brand Wool, which feels really nice – so nice I’m considering what I can make for *me* out of it. One of these days I’m going to be brave enough to tackle a sweater for myself.
