So my yarn obsession continues. I had been using a borrowed loom from my friend and have since purchases some
looms of my own. At the request of one of my boys I knitted up a pair of slippers for each of them. K even chose the yarn at the store, its vibrant and busy just like them. This is the tiny loom used, how cute ey? Thinking it could be used to make mittens for next winter too.
For a pattern all I did was check out the amazing stuff on pinterest and winged it. The socks are just a tube with a space knit in for a heal. To do that you knit on one side of the loom for a few rows, I did about 8 rows, that’s what it took to make my rainbow tube bend.
I haven’t perfected this yet, the looms technique that is shown with on pinterset is always an adult sized round loom, so it didn’t translate too well onto my little rectangle. I created an odd kinda hole that where the heal pocket should’ve joined nicely, I hand tacked it up at the end. Thinking of playing with it on a larger loom before I attempt another tiny socky.
As always the boys were just thrilled with their little slipper socks ! Weirdly the fit is a bit short….honestly I sized them using their feet. Mr. Lemons says they must have grown in the 3 days it took to knit the slippers. Possibly as K is eating everything in sight this week. Or possibly my heal hack job was part of it 🙂
