Hum my dad is. But he's not s scarf person... Now one of the BIL I think I could do a loomed beanie but the other I'm still really stuck on. I just don't know very much about him. Except that he's a huge fan of the Georgia bulldogs. Last year I made him a little mini georgia bulldog.
I was debating a hat and scarf in their colors. (red and black) but I am unsure of if he'll use it...
Is it possible to chart on a loom? I mean if you can do fair isle you can right? Anyone tried it before?
I haven't tried it before but I remember watching Isela on Knitty Gritty and her saying that you can do it on a KK but its going to be pretty low-res stuff compared to a fine gauge or small gauge loom.

This would be a great opportunity to make your own!  Cheesy

I actually gave mine to my daughter (who is 7) and she made a hat with it.  She absolutely LOVES it.

Low res would be okies with me. Smiley The only other thing I have to do then is play with it. Smiley

Has anyone attempted a calorimetry headband on a loom yet?  Does anyone have or know where to find a tut or pattern for it.  I am having a hard time translating the one given here:

Thanks!

I'd rather swing on the moon than a star.

I just knit a short, thin scarf on the purple loom, then brought the ends together.

I *think* we talked about this on here somewhere. Someone did it. My read on it was that you'd have to change the construction of it to make it work. Oh! I found my old post:

Quote
1. The Lazy way: Just knit one half, bind off, and do the other half, and then seam them together. (This would probably be my course of action LOL)

2. The Non-Lazy way: make the one half, take a long knitting needle, dowel or other object and put all of the loops from the pegs onto there. Flip the object so that its directed outward rather than into the loom. Knit from the inside of the loom instead of the outside. (The way I would feel I should do it, but probably wouldn't LOL)

3. The Adaptation way: I would try to do it without flipping the work. This would probably mean you'd get a less rounded look, but it would still be a cute headband! (The way I'd probably end up in the end, b/c by the time I've done it the other way, I'd want to design my own!  Grin)

Does that make sense? I should get around to doing it sooner or later. <grins> I'm starting Xmas hats and scarves and legwarmers right now. I've got a big group this year - the grandparents want stuff now!  Cheesy

Not really off topic... 
FO
"finished object"
UFO
"unfinished object"

Right, everyone?  Correct me if I'm wrong.  Wink
