Many people are perplexed with knitting. They find it too frustrating what with dropping the needles or dropping the stitches.

But recently I purchased a knitting loom called the Knifty Knitter. It is not only a perfect gift to give to your mother, it’s a great thing to buy for yourself so you can knit hats for your mother. You can also make baby blankets and newborn hats for shower gifts for the mother to be. It’s made by Provo crafts and their website has free patterns.

I figured out how to use it in five minutes with the enclosed directions. And I showed it to a neighbor who is 11 years old. The girl picked it up right away and said she was going to get one to make a hat for her grandmother. Her Mom liked it so much she’s going to go buy one for both of them to use.

I finished my hat in about six hours. The kit comes with 4 rings of different sizes, a hook, a yarn needle and directions. You either use bulky yarn with it or 2 strands of worsted weight yarn.

So if you are one of those moms or mothers-to-be that are too impatient and frustrated to knit the conventional way, try the Knifty Knitter.
Update: Yesterday I ran across another knitting loom by Lion Brand.

Update: Long Loom Series

I just got the new loom series of long knitting looms for things like shawls and bedspreads at a sale. I got the whole set of 4 for $12.00. And I got some more Lion Brand Homespun like in the two hats above. The texture goes so well with the Knifty Knitter.

I finished the red hat and gave it to my daughter for Christmas. She loves it.

Update

I was afraid I might get bored with the loom knitting quickly. But that hasn’t been the case. I’ve now made about 9 hats. I’m almost done with a tube scarf made on the smallest ring. I find 1 bulky weight yarn, 2 worsted weight yarns or 3 very thin yarns held together work the best for me.
I just wrote a tutorial on using the longer loom series.

Knitting Loom Creations

  • Funny Pompom Envelope Hats

Today I delivered these two hats I custom made. I’m open to taking more custom orders in any color combination and in any size. These are great for photo sessions for professional photographers. Order a selection of sizes and colors. I’m going to make a bunch for my daughter’s photo studio as well. They are also very comfortable for every day wear. I love wearing mine!

  • New Hat and Two New Tutorials on Using the Knifty Knitter Looms

Last night I designed a new hat on my Knifty Knitter so that will be the two tutorials for this week. I’m getting a lot of hits on my other new KK tutorials. Part One Part 2

  • A New Tutorial

Loom knitting tutorial. How to make a flat panel on a circular loom. You can use one panel to make a scarf or sew them side by side to make blankets, lap covers, purses, pillows and other rectangular items. I just finished this one a few minutes ago so I know you haven’t seen it yet.

My Craft Blog on Indie Public

  • Trip to Arizona

… You can read my almost daily craft blog here: http://craftaday .blogspot.com/ I do try to drop by Indiepublic once in a while to add an update. I just added some new photos to my photo stream here. I’ve been busy on many projects including beadwork earrings and beaded spiders, whittling, weaving, and doing cross stitch embroidery. My need to create is greater than my need to make sales so I just keep on creating through thick and thin. I just spent a weekend in AZ and that inspired me to study southwestern art. I bought some charms from a lady out there including kokopelli, a coyote, a roadrunner, a saguaro, and some more conventional charms. The weather was perfect out there and we camped 2 nights by Quartzsite where I took many photos.

  • Archery Clan meeting

I’m hoping to start a monthly meeting for people that want to work on their arrow making, bow making, flint knapping and archery gear. We already go to one on Pasadena every month, but I thought we’d get a lot more done and stay focused if we had one two weeks after the other one. I… I’m hoping to start a monthly meeting for people that want to work on their arrow making, bow making, flint knapping and archery gear. We already go to one on Pasadena every month, but I thought we’d get a lot more done and stay focused if we had one two weeks after the other one. I wanted something in Orange County CA so I wouldn’t have to drive all the way to Pasadena. It will probably be at El Dorado Park, though I’d prefer Mile Square Park because they don’t have the $5 parking fee. Well, they do, but they have free street parking. There is no street parking at El Dorado. But most of the people who said they might come live closer to Long Beach, so I may get outvoted. If Sig comes we can work on gourd art and spoon carving too. But he works in the medical field so his schedule is all over the place. He gave me a spoon carving tool and I can’t wait to get some green wood to try it out on. Also I hope David will come. He lives in Laguna Beach, so either location is closer for him that Pasadena. Of couse if you are reading this and live near Anaheim and think you want to learn these skills, leave me a comment so I can make sure you know when the meetings are.

  • How do I get rid of the cloud photo on my blog?

I’m trying to remodel my blog this morning and can’t seem to find how to change the blog background photo. It’s not listed on the other page to change and tile photos for the header and so on. Hmmm. When I quit trying to solve the puzzle I’ll probably find the solution. It’s my brain teaser for the day.
