when visiting my mother in law recently she got me hooked on loom knitting. I made a hat in 3 hours on a knifty knitter round loom. I was amazed. And it actually looked good too. So after making a couple more hats I decided I could make socks, fun socks like I like. you know the kind that do have to match exactly or have funky designs. so I bought a sock loom and to start I thought I would do a pair of regular socks.
well this is the loom and ..........
After ripping it apart 3 times I think I finally have the hang of a knit stitch. there are now 2 rows (besides the cast on stitch) of my first sock done correctly.
yeah. of course this one pair of socks may take me three years to make. but hey I am learning right.? hahaha
what I have learned so far.
1. don't skip a step - the reason i tore it apart 3 times.
2. there is more then just the easy e-wrap stitch associated with knitting.
3. this is still way easier then regular knitting for me - yes for me it is. I have never mastered chop sticks and would starve if I had to so what made me ever think I could do knitting needles. hahaha.
well someday I might have an end result to show until then this is just one of my many hobbies I take up.
