Loom Knitting — My First Hat!
I Can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting! The book title really does say it all! I’m trying my hand a loom knitting with some guidance from Kathy Norris’ how-to book—I Can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting, and I’m really amazed at how absolutely easy it is!
To get started, I got myself a copy of I Can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting, a 31 peg round loom, a knitting loom tool, and a skein of yarn! That’s all you need!
Father’s Day afternoon while other family members were otherwise occupied with napping or John Wayne movie watching, I sat down with my supplies, read over the instructions, and set to work on the first project in the book—the Beginner Knit Hat. I’m making it in an infant size (hence the need for the 31 peg loom) for my daughter’s friend’s new baby! (I can see myself making more of these baby hats for charity!)
By the end of the afternoon, I had this much done and was quietly congratulating myself! I really am loom knitting!
Now, I just need to find the time to actually finish this hat ’cause I want to start on the second project in I Can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting—The Next Step E-Wrap Knit Hat! (More baby hats on the horizon!)
Wish me luck with my baby hats loom knitting extravaganza!
Oh, and if you’re finding yourself intrigued by the idea of loom knitting, too, let me tell you—I Can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting is also available as a digital download, so you can take it everywhere with you. (Which is probably how I’ll manage to finish my first hat!)
