Knifty Knitting

It all started in June of 2007.  I was preparing to go to the beach at Kalaloch on the coast and stay in a cabin with friends for July 4th.  Figuring there’d be some downtime at the cabin, I went to the craft store to find a new craft project to start.  For months, I had been stalking this Provo CraftKnifty Knitter” knitting loom set, waiting for it to go on sale for 40% off or for it to be off sale so I could use my coupon.  Finally, it was the right price and I bought it!

The instructions were easy to figure out, and it was helpful to find out my girl friend Mel had a Knifty Knitter at home and knew how to use it.  She showed me a few tips that really helped make knitting on a loom simple and fun.  I whipped out a scarf and a hat that weekend and I was hooked!  No pun intended.

Since then, I have purchased several other Knifty Knitter looms in various sizes.  I’ve created dozens of hats, scarves, a lap blanket, and a stuffed spider.  Every time I travel, I take a knitting loom with me on the plane.  It’s fun to have a project to work on that doesn’t take a lot of concentration or brain power.  I couldn’t fit all my photos into this collage, but this should give you an idea of the kind of things I knit:

If I’ve knitted a creation for you, how’s it holding up?  If you’d like me to knit something for you (wrong season, I know!), please let me know and I may just surprise you!
