Learming To Use the Knitting Looms

I Love to Crochet and
I hate to Knit.

I was at Micheal's the other day and
They had these kits on sale, so I bought one.

I thought this would be a great way to
"KNIT" with out the needles.

It came with these 4 sizes
and a hook and needle.
I decided to make the smallest size,
just to see how it worked.


I chose some pretty teal chunky yarn
 and got started.

Before I realized it I had
 "Knitted" a pretty long tube.
I made it into a cute hat for Maximo.

But my granddaughter had a better idea.
She put it on her American Girl Baby doll
She got for Christmas!

I am going to make a bigger hat today..For me!
