Well, not really, although this is one of two posts on the subject of 'craft'.
The 2nd ( yet to come ) being on the Dangerbaby Cape I made the youngest for a recent Superhero Party.
But I have had a lot of people ask about the 'Knitting Nancy I use for Grown-Ups'.
The best thing about reading about something crafty on my blog, is that you know it's piss-easy.
I don't waste my time with tricky bits, or complicated tutorials.
I just do stuff, and if it works for me, i'm interested. If it's all a bit too hard - then, pfft - see you later.
You can buy the looms from Spotlight, in the wool section. There's 4 in a bag, of varying sizes, and they cost about $15. You can use them to make caps, scarves, snoods, socks, baby cocoons, anything probably, if you really wanted to get into it, I guess ?
This is a cap I made MC last year. His brother has a matching one.
Basically, just the same as your Knitting nancy on a bigger scale: you just winda-winda-winda the wool around around the pegs, and then pluck over the loops with a crochet hook. Too easy.
Unfortunately, my project ATM is using one of those fuzzy funky 'designer wools' ( what do you call a ball of wool that is actually all synthetic anyway ? ), so it's a bit hard to see the stitch/pattern, it's just all fuzz:
I took these in the car today - parked in the drive. Got through 2 balls of 'wool' while the Dangerbaby slept in the back.
The whole time I was 'knitting', I was thinking of Hannibal Lecter.
Because i'm a bit funny like that. Probably.
So yeah, if you're interested, get thee to Spotlight, and if you have any problems because like, I provided absolutely no guidance here, just do a search on YouTube for 'knitting loom tutorial' - there's like a 1000 to choose from ( it's how I learned to do a flat scarf panel as opposed to doing everything in the round )
and have fun!
