Yep another pair of slippers socks. I used the round loom yet again. Used sock yarn with Red Heart. Needed to use up the sock yarn. Guess i'm hooked. Like how fast you can make them.

wow--I was looking at those looms for a Christmas gift to myself...I love knitting socks but I can't make them fast enough for friends and family that want them! Cheesy

They look good!  Is the toe part gathered?  Does it start you at the top or the toe...?  I was thinking that maybe I could do a combo of loom and DPN needles...cheat a bit! Cheesy

Love the colors!

Hey Roomie, I just found this post and wanted toadd something.
I am getting lloms for christmas so I have been checking out the loom posts.

I have noted a few ways to do the toe.

1: Gather all.
2: Decrease by 50%, then gather.
3: Kitchener.
4: (and my favourite idea), at the toe repeat the wrap&turn heel, on same stitches used for heel. Cast off, then close the hole made at the toe. The seam will look like store-brought socks with the seem running across the top of the toes.

I hope this is of some help.
I can't wait the 18 days I have to for my looms.
