Thank you for your help. Today I finished my hat. Would have liked it longer...before I finished it the length looked fine .....but it is still nice.
I will checkout YouTube soon. Joyce

Find more info on YouTube they have lots of videos and I have learned how to make many things on there. There are long looms also for your afghans but you can make a flat panel on a round loom too. Good luck!On Tue, Dec 3, 2013 at 12:27 PM, Joycee Cwaggs <joyceequilts1942@...> wrote:That's nice your hubby does this. Can't get my guy interested in doing any type crafts I do......told him Rosie Greer does needlework.......he says good for him. It would be something for him to do regardless. After 52 years of marriage I've given up trying to change him, lol. joyce I will check out ravelry and your husband's postings. He sounds very talented. BTW My hat is started, can't wait to finish it and since it's small it won't be long I am sure.
My husband picked up my round looms (I do a lot more crocheting now) and he makes all sorts of things- he converts both knit and crochet patterns and works them on his loom. If you are a bit adventurous it is amazing what can come off these plastic looms! If you are on ravelry he is SirBump there -check it out!-----Original Message-----

Subject: Re: [ROUNDLOOMS] need help pleasePenny I feel too that there isn't too much to make with these looms but they seem to be popular I've seen all shapes and sizes at the local craft shop. Guess I'm not adventurous lol.......like patterns simple and easy. I think too I make out best when someone shows me in person although I understand utube is pretty good with that. Perhaps I should check that out. enjoy your day joyce thanks for responding, and no I haven't started my hat yet, lol........don't know what my problem is but I am hoping to start it today.........inbetween baking and bathing the dog.......

You said that you had Bulky thread? I don't think you will need to double the thread. I have made many baby hats and ever a few bigger hats. I even tried to make an envelope hat. was very disappointed in it. I really do like the loom knitting. but I do feel confined to a small list of things I can make. (hat, scarf, flowers) What I have found very useful is going to the you tube and checking out things. Good luck and have a good holiday.penny
I joined this group some time ago but hadn't posted or tried much looming. It's cold here now on the Northern east coast and my hairs a mess...yea I know you needed that information lol......so I wanted to make some fast cover up the hair hats. My head is small so I don't know what size loom to make. I have a set of KK round looms and the hat size purple one. The purple one seems to be way to big, and the green one in the set is about right. I bought a yarn that is bulky sized at #6.......do I need to double the yarn with a yarn that weight? I have been online doing lots of research but still have doubts........I hate the idea of having to rip anything I do out, but I may not have a choice. Thanks so much for any help.
