Isela,
I would love to know what yarns you used in the samples or what types of yarns would be best for blocking? Also I'm wanting to make a scarf with a similar size to your sample. Which of your fine gauge looms would you suggest? You keep coming up with all of these great ideas,twisting my arm to buy more looms.

Isela,

Another outstanding video! You are gonna ROCK on Knitty Gritty! (We must be on the same "wave length" because I have been designing and working on some colorwork as well!)

If I may comment on the direction we wrap the loom - Personally, as I am right hand, I prefer to work clockwise when doing circular knitting. This allows me to hold the working yarn with my left hand and the tool with my right hand. I find that it is much faster this way. When doing flat knitting it doesn't matter since you have to go back in the opposite direction at the end of each row anyway.

So I say - Do whatever feels comfortable to you.

Huggz!

Hi Stacey,
The direction in which you knit doesn't have an effect on your knits, unless you are knitting a picture in which case, you should follow the direction the pattern designer used if not, you will end up with a mirror image.

Just like in needle knitting we have continental and the English method, loom knitters have the Clockwise and Counterclockwise methods. I am one of those rebels who learned by herself so I wrap clockwise around my loom. Many whom learned from the instructions that the Knifty Knitter have loom knit in a counterclockwise direction.

Another great lesson! I can't wait to get the package and start playing. Apparently, I've been going the wrong direction. I've been going to the right from the anchor peg and you go to the left. I'm going to have to switch that!
