Back in December I discovered the hat loom, and made my 4 month old cousin a hat. My aunt was asked by over 30 people where she'd bought the hat and convinced me to make some to sell. On Saturday I'll post an action pic, but for now here are some of the hats I've been making.
Comments, suggestions, etc are completely welcomed. Cheesy
(Oh and if anyone knows of a better place to post this I'll move it, but I didn't feel it belonged in knitting because I used a loom.)





and my least favorite, but made upon request.

I have a hat loom and LOVE it..my dd always gets compliments on the hats I've made..and its fun! (well I guess I more get the compliments since shes' just 1..but still, she's the wearer and owner of the hat) I've never though to attaching flowers, just a bit of ribbon and bows, but yours are stunning....how do you attach the flowers if you don't mind me asking?

I don't mind you asking. I snip off the stem to as close as possible w/o disassembling the flower, then I thread an apholstery needle with matching yarn and force it through. It gets stuck a little sometimes, but it works best. Then I just like sew it on. Cheesy

Thanks for the compliments. 
And personally I find the bigger the flower the better. People say they look like Ann Geddes (I don't know the correct spelling) style hats... But I don't know.  Cheesy

Is a hat loom one of that set of about four circular knitting looms?

I see this set at Michael's all the time and I am so tempted to buy it but have never been sure what I would actually make with it. These are so cute, though. If these are what you used, I think temptation is going to win.

None other.  My friends and I call them hat looms, but actually the smallest is really good for thick scarves, or you can make shawls and all sorts of things on them. Cheesy I love them, cause I went to 4 knitting classes and they all told me I'm basically hopeless. haha... oh well. Cheesy
