So you remember when I told you that I’m trying a new skill. Well, for right now I’m putting down the loom knitting. I will pick it back up later. I’m now trying hand looping, some call it hand knitting. I love it. I was practicing to see if I can get the hang of it and this is what I made. I currently have it under my door for a rug because it’s so cold. I’m working on my daughter a scarf right now. This project is so calming and relaxing. I have found several YouTube videos that I have watched to learn to make all types of stuff. Has anyone tried hand looping before? The yarn you use for this project is called finger loop yarn.
Besides reading and writing, I wanted to learn a new skill to help me relax. Being home during COVID and now the weather here in Texas is super cold. I wanted something that was going to be easy, so I went to a craft store and bought a kit for loom knitting. If you have ever tried loom knitting it’s not hard but it’s hard. If that makes any sense at all. I’m learning how to do what is called an E stitch. I haven’t made anything yet because I’m still trying to get the hang of it. I even bought a book that has different things that you can make for beginners. But this is what I have done so far. If you have ever loom knitted any suggestions? I have always gone on YouTube and have learned a few things. But I’m not sure how successful I will be. It’s very calming and that’s what I need right now.
