Knitting



Landon's teacher is expecting a baby boy this spring. I pulled out my brandnew knitting hoops which have been sitting in my closet for almost 2 years. I could barely remember how to use the looms but quitely remember how to start them. I'm not sure how to finish them off but hopefully I will be able to figure it out. Landon did a really good job. He ended up doing a couple of rows.

to finish the hats you thread a yarn (plastic) needle with yarn, take the hat off the loom, and thread the yarn through each of the loops (the loops that were around the pegs). Then pull the yarn and it will gather the top together into a hat! Since landon is doing the smallest hat size, be sure to make the hat a few rows longer than you might think, or else it will only fit the baby for the first few days and that's it! cute idea.
