*jumping on the bandwagon* I bought a loom kit on sale yesterday.. got this awesome 99 cent yarn and made a hat for my friends baby girl that is scheduled to pop out any day now Smiley
I also have a friend whos baby is about 6 months, im wondering if i can make the same hat for her, or if i should go to the second smallest hoop (mine is green)
babies heads are pretty freakin small, right??

(awesome projects and suggestions, btw, i read through all 50 something pages !)

I'd probably make the smaller one - red's usually better for babies (and newborns use the blue).

Congrats on making it through all 50! And that's a very cute hat!  Cheesy

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

I made a modified one that just looks like a really wide headband - I made it as a flat panel and then after it was the length I wanted it to be wide, I brought the top up and connected them.

my colors go from smallest to largest... blue, green, pink, purple (some no-name brand)
so i think you are saying the smallest one is good for newborns, but to use the second smallest for older babies? i am making one on that now(green), and it looks too big. hmph.

ok, so this is what i have completed for christmas presents so far:


this is mi madres hat.  it's a roll-up one.  i'm very proud.


this is mi padres hat.  it's my first one that i did.  it's got a brim and the two-toned colors.  it was perhaps a bit adventagious for my first project, but nonetheless, i'm proud.


and this is the scarf i'm working on for mi madre.  i've got quite a ways to go on it still.  and that glory of a mess behind it is all my other crap that i have scatered around that i haven't bothered putting away since i got back from thanksgiving break last week.  cause i'm lazy.

but yay projects!  i'm going to start working on a scarf for my dad as soon as i get my mom's done.  i plan on doing his scarf two-toned, because i don't have a lot of the green left.

but i wanted to show my progress thus far.  and this is in about a week, plus a day.  i started on my dads hat on the saturday during the week of thanksgiving, and i finished the brim sunday, and did two rows sunday night, and finished it monday and fixed it saturday.  and i started on my mom's hat this past thursday and then i finished it up on saturday.  yeah...now i'm rambling.  i'm just really empressed with how quickly i got them done is all.  and i think i'm tired too.  i tend to ramble a lot when i'm tired.  XD

I think we have the same set!
If you can measure the babies head that's the best way to make a hat the right size. Then measure the width around your two smaller looms and see which is closest. For a baby the hat could be a bit snug so it can't get off easy. But you obviously don't want it too tight. 1/2 and inch or so is ok but much smaller is too small. In that case go to the next size up. Babies are constantly growing. Smiley

If someone lists the sizes/colors of their looms in order from smallest to largest just label your looms according to size and then you'll know which "color" loom you need. (if that made no sense let me know.)

You could ask her mom to measure her head if you talk to her often enough. Have her wrap a string around the largest part of the babies head and measure it.
Smiley
Otherwise if it doesn't matter make two hats and whichever one fits give her and keep the other for the next baby shower. Smiley
I have many sneaky ways of doing things since my family is clever at figuring out what I'm doing for Christmas. I somehow have to get my BIL's head measurement and he doesn't live with my MIL so I have no idea how to swing that one!
