My daughter told me that one of her friends at school knits with a circular loom to make hats. She doesn’t have to finish her projects off in some inscrutable, complicated way – she just pulls a piece of yarn through all the loops and ties it.
Well that sounded awfully good to me. (My daughter’s first knitting project was a loom scarf, and the finishing part was tense.) So I bought a set of circular looms for her.
She was all excited to use this skein of Red Heart Baby Clouds, which looks and feels suspiciously like Lion Brand Homespun.
She needed a little help getting the yarn on the loom, then she did a few loops and remembered that she “hated” knitting. I was not thinking, so I offered to see if the yarn was twisted up a little funny or something. Next thing I know, I’m knitting a hat and my daughter is running away laughing! But I don’t even know how to knit! How on earth did this happen to me?
