Knitting: Loom Knit Scarf

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.
