A little friend is using a knitting loom, the scarf one. I wanted to try it myself. I found the loom at Joann Fabrics and Crafts one my way to the Family History Center recently. To my shame, I never did one bit of family history that night. Of course, I did not have any patrons, either.
This is the beginning of the project:
It took a couple of tries to get it right. I used two strands of worsted weight yarn held together and using the "figure eight" cast on. This makes a very nice thick scarf. Also uses a good bit of the stashed yarn...!
This scarf is coming along well. After not a very long time I noticed that the plastic pegs were being pulled toward each other. I had to loosen up a great deal when I wrapped the next rounds. Loosening worked like a charm.
