Loom Knitting Progress—1st Hat Finished!

Remember the Beginner Knit Hat from Kathy Norris’ I Can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting that I was babbling the other day? I actually finished it—


I actually got to hold my little baby hat up in a house full of girls and say the words, “I really knitted a hat!” It was pretty cool! Then, I got to share my limited loom knitting skills with the girls! They were thrilled when I showed them how easy loom knitting really is…


And, at that point, I only thought I’d found the easiest way to hand make hats ever! Then, I started on the next hat in I Can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting—the Next-Step E-Wrap Knit Hat! It’s made while holding two strands of yarn together, so it works up super fast! (I’m making another baby hat!)

I’ll show you my loom knitting hat #2 when I find a minute to finish it…of course, the girls announced they needed food just as I was about half way done…But once again, I just want to share how simple it was to pick up right where I left off with my loom knitting. No counting or fuss, and if you have hand issues (sometimes mine really hurt if I get on a crocheting or cross stitch binge), so far, loom knitting isn’t bothering me at all! If fact, a lady on Facebook told us that she was able to loom knit with one hand when she had hand surgery! Pretty cool, huh?

  1. I decided to try loom knitting because I have a lot of pain in my hands from MS and my fine motor skills are severly limmited...Loom knitting does not aggrivate my hands and finally I can use manually accomplish something productive in making my five children hats, mitts, socks and so much more.
