I got a Knitting loom set


#201

Good reason to be a pack rat lol tired of it or out of fashion wait a few years and it will come back and you have all the tools to start in again :wink:


#202

Couldn’t see to count my rows so I had a pen and paper and drew a line for each row to keep track.


#203

Cute! Love to Pom on top! I have Pom Pom makers too now love them going to have to pull them out too with my loom😊


#204

I do that anyway just so I am not wrong on the count if there are several rows to be doing as there is in what I am working on now it seems unending lol .


#205

I make mine the old fashion way by wrapping around my fingers or a cardboard as I am not trying to produce a big batch at a time .
PS and I usually have my fingers with me at all times :smile:


#206

I made this on a loom took me about a month and a half. It’s 5.5 ft by 5 ft I think


#207

Yeah as I said my old ARE WE THERE YET syndrome would kick in with something this size and it would be sitting unfinished or unraveled and used for a bunch of little things :smile:


#208

All my favorite colors! So be achy and nautical looking, I love it. Was it a finer weight yarn?


#209

That’s beautiful ! A long journey !


#210

Lol, it was a mother’s day gift so I had to get it finished.


#211

Thank you! No it was a worsted weight yarn.


#212

Thank you!


#213

Okay I would have tried to hang on for that mom was worth several of those to me but it would have been one bumpy ride .


#214

Lol


#215

Hi everyone!!! Today my looms came!!! :grinning::grinning::kiss:
What kind of yarn do I need? I never knew how many kinds there are! I had no idea what to get for a slow beginner! Please advise :heart:


#216

Woohoo let the looming begin…wait that sounded bad lol


#217

Here is a pic of a label you will be looking for the yarn size. Most of us are working with medium 4 weight yarn. You can see it on this skein toward the bottom left side in pic.The larger the number the thicker the yarn. Vice versa.


#218

I usually buy this very affordable yarn at hobby lobby it is soft and available in every color in the rainbow. This is by my lazyboy in living room.


#219

Yeah if you look at her label it shows the knitting needle size it is used for an eight needle or if you fall in love with a color and cant get it in that weight you can double the thread as you work .
Just have fun with it :smile:


#220

I love to see rooms full of yarn…I am a yarnoholic…
Seem I can’t use worsted weight yarn with loom, the result is too loose. Do you always double the thread?
