21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knifty Knitter Scarf Question on: January 03, 2006 05:00:56 PM
I have been working on a scarf for my brother, and I am using one of the knifty knitter looms. I've been working back and forth, doing a basic 1 over 2 e-wrap (as I'm not very knowledgeable yet as to other stitches). In other words, I'm working back and forth on the loom, until each peg is wrapped 3 times. Then, I take the bottom loop on each peg and pull it up over the top two and knit off. I was told that this would solve the problem of my scarves curling up, but it doesn't. Does anyone know any other way to keep a scarf from curling? One that's not too difficult?

Go to any ceramic tile store and ask for their broken tiles. They often pile them up outside the store on a daily/weekly basis. They love to give them away to artists or crafters. I used to get a ton of them and use them for mosaic tile work. I used a large pile of shiny cobalt blue tile, broken into small pieces, to put a mosaic in my shower. All you have to buy is the grout and glue. And it turned out great!

I would love to participate in this. Should the items be only finished pieces, or could they also be miscellaneous craft-related supplies? Or maybe a combination of the two. Anyway, sounds cool.

It's possible that I'm just using too chunky of a yarn, and it's making my adult hats come out tight.

I'm gonna have to try the dental tool out. Thanks for the tip.

When I can't sleep, I enjoy knitting on a knifty knitter loom (a circular loom; you can get them at Micheal's or JoAnn Fabrics). I can usually finish a hat in an hour or two, depending on the size and complexity. That way, I don't feel like I started something and didn't get to finish it. It's really easy to do, and it's a great way to make gifts for people without spending much money. I go to thrift stores and pick up all the yarn for pennies, and then come home and make something with it. Then I machine wash it when I'm finished.

Yes, you've got the idea. I started knitting on the Knifty Knitter loom set a few months ago, and now I'm cranking out at least one hat or scarf a day, depending on how much time I spend on it. I prefer to use the purple rake Knifty Knitter loom for scarves (the circular looms make the edges of the scarf curl), and the yellow circular loom for adult hats, as the green loom tends to make them a bit tight. I'm 8 months pregnant, and I started making newborn hats with the blue circular loom, but I think they're going to be too small. Looks like they'll fit a preemie, but not a regular-sized newborn.

I love my knifty knitter set, and I have started getting really good at making scarves, hats, and mittens, but I've found that I have to take a day off every now and then because my fingers get VERY sore. Anyone else have this problem?
