I am knitting!

Well, sort of. For those who know me you know I can't knit the regular way. I can knit on looms, though. I bought this loom a few months ago and thought I would try it out after the Foothills show. When the show was over I thought....I will try it after I have my surgery. I took it with me to the physical therapy rehab center and then realized I didn't bring a tape measure to measure my foot. My family brought me one but then I worked on making hats instead. Employees kept coming in to check the progress of the hats and two employees wanted to learn how to use the Knifty Knitter Loom! When I came home I again looked at this neglected little loom and thought it was time to use it. This is what I have so far.

So far working on this loom is just like making a hat on the Knifty Knitter loom. The part coming out the bottom of the loom is the leg. I went ahead and put a cuff on this one. I am sure when I get to the heel I will be looking at the DVD that came with it several times until I get it. You know, it feels really good to be creating something again! It kind of takes my mind of my knee for a while.

For two days I have been walking around the house without the walker or the cane. I can do it but I have a limp. I wouldn't want to try this outside just yet. Hopefully in a few weeks I will be better than new!



  1. Wonderful. I am glad you started you socks. Have fun.

  2. That sock looks great! You will have to bring it to weaving with you so we cans see it!

  3. I've never tried that before, but it looks like fun!

  4. Okay.. now when I get backed up on sock orders, I know who to contact to take care of my overages!

  5. Hello Linda, Just wondering if your Pine Ridge is in South Dakota? Belinda

  6. Love it! I've been learning to knit and crocheting simple things the last couple of months. I would like to learn some more basic stitches. Glad you are doing well and back to creating. How much did you say 2 hand towels would be to weave?
