I sincerely hope that when my visitors drop by that they are not dissapointed and they can end there visit with me on a creative note, taking with them lots of ideas and some fun stuff to do too!
I would like you to meet my beautiful daughter Paige. She's a blonde, but the blonde roots don't go so deep. Yesterday I had a parent teacher conference for her Preschool. She is only four and this little girl is one smart coookie! Let me tell you, she counts to well over 100, she is adding and subtracting, and she not only knows all of her alphabet by site, but she is starting to put the sounds of each of these together and is starting to read! According to her teacher, she knows most of what she needs to by the time she is out of Kindergarten! Way to go Paige!
I am busy writing up my half finger gloves pattern. Since so many people requested the gloves be adapted to the Knifty Knitter by Provo Craft, I am doing just that. I know when I started looming, fine gauge looms scared the living daylights out of me and I had a dickens of a time with them. I did lots of practice on the larger gauge looms to help me understand a process before trying it out on a fine gauge loom. I even made a sock with sock weight yarn on my Blue Knifty Knitter using just a single strand (yes, you heard me, a single strand) and then being the interprising person I am, I threw it in the washing machine and shrunk that baby down so the stitches came together. When that sock came out of the wash, it looked like I had knit it on a fine gauge loom! Here is the sock I made on my Knifty Knitter:
Felting isn't anything new, I know. I just wanted to let you know that you can experiment a little with yarn weights on your Knifty Knitters and try out some of those neat projects that call for those wonderful fine gauge looms without having to struggle and/or without having to go out and buy a fine gauge loom. Try it out using sport weight or fingering weight yarn. Explore the idea with your red or green Knifty Knitters too. Make a sock using any loom knit sock pattern just make sure to knit that baby really big! Stuff it with some tube socks (or anything else cotton) so the sides don't get too stuck together. When it comes out of the washing machine you'll need to work with it immediately before it dries to shape. You may need to do some pulling apart and stretching a little. Beware the sock will end up more like a slouch sock, but hey, it's a sock you look like you made on a fine gauge loom! Hee, hee.
Have a great day!
