So, as you probably already know, I get bored doing the same thing over and over again, so I branch out to different hobbies or different techniques. This time I trying loom knitting. It's super easy, just loose. I got the Knifty Knitter at a thrift store and on all four round looms, the pegs are just too far apart for my taste. They make great fall or spring hats but I can't imagine making a nice, tight, warm winter hat. Someone correct me if I'm wrong though. Here's some random pics from my loom adventure :
This hat was made with UNspun recycled cotton. The stitches are perfect, way more perfect than UNspun can be knit up on regular needles, so that's a plus for the good ol knifty knitter.
Now, the yarn for I used for this hat was REspun recycled cotton, but the twist had not been set. I actually like how it turned out, how it kind of has a spiral action to it. Coolio if you ask me :)
