Well ladies I'm knifty knitting! It only took a thunder storm and not being able to sew due to no surge protector on the sewing machine. I can now e-wrap and purl. I assume E-wrap is the same as knit? I'm trying my socks and seeing if I can make them with a k/p ribbing instead of the brim thing. I don't like the brim edge. I've got one row so far and working on the next one!

Its one way of doing the knit stitch. If you want to get technical I believe it has specifically been found to be the duplicate of the twisted knit stitch on the needles.

Sounds like your socks are coming along!  Cheesy
How much of a difference will it make do you think? I only have two rows so I can easily take it out and start over.
Also how much difference will it make if I use one strand of worsted weight yarn instead of the two for a bulky?
I'm useing two right now but was just wondering. I may have to experiment. Wink

A few months ago I picked up some 'Knifty Knitter' looms (The set of 4 circle looms and a purple rectangular one)
I love knitting with needles and I thought I could expand my field of knitting knowledge.
As it turns out though I can't find any good patterns for these types of looms.
Most people seem to make scarves and other simple things that only require a rectangle or two.
The official website for this brand of looms has some patterns but most of them are scarves.
I'm beginning to think I made a big mistake buying these things. They're starting to gather dust...
Does anyone know of any cool patterns or projects I can make using a knifty knitter?
(Almost) Any input would be appreciated.

I tried to teach my husband to knit (he did this willingly), but it was too frustrating for him.  So he tried out the looms and had a ball making hats.  Then he got bored.  So now I'm stuck with a loom and found these:

I have yet to try any because I like knitting with my needles, but they're more interesting than scarves and hats!  Hope this helps.

Yarn Bug,

Have you checked out any of the other chatter going on in the Knifty Knitter threads in both the discussion and the completed projects section? There is some darn cool stuff being made - amiguriumi, hats, bags, bracelets - just about anything you can think of.

I would highly suggest http://www.loomknit.com, http://www.loomknitting.com, and
http://www.loomknitterscircle.com/, which is kind of like our version of Knitty.

Stick with it - I rotate pretty regularly betwen the two - they are way fun!

Thanks for the help. I've been inspired.
I have one more question though.
How does one go about doing multicolored pieces?

H'okay...

Mom has taken it upon herself to get more eco-friendly recently. I want to make her a reusable shopping bag as part of my stash-busting attempts but I cannot find the pattern I SWORE I had bookmarked. Can anyone help?

Its very similar to a regular colorwork piece on the needles. There is a great video that demonstrates the concept here:

http://www.loomknit.com/colourwork-on-a-knitting-loomvideo.html

Otherwise, my pieces have gone together by trial and error, depending on the method of colorwork involved.

OK, I just got my KK and I have to jump and share how much fun I'm having...especially cause my attempts at learning to knit with needles resulted in injuries d/t stepping on them and being clumsy (i stabbed myself...repeatedly).  But I made a dishtowel on the purple long loom and am working up a scarf.  I'll figure out the round looms later when I find something to make besides a hat.  Yay!!

Happy Knitting Ya'll,
pixie

Pixie,

If you have time, take to a bunch of the sites mentioned in the thread. There are TONS of things you can make besides hats!

I have a ballet slipper on the round loom right now (though, it should have been done months ago in time for LoomClass, but oh well).

SabrinaJL, I just saw your message. Awesome, Rowena's back on designing for the KKs! Her stuff is great.
