I am on a bag spree... I love loom knitting bags... shopping bags with single ewrap stitches and occasional flat stitched rows to keep the shape (I call them magic bags because of the amount of amazing stretch) and triple wrapped bottoms, small bags for phones and such and large triple ewrapped bags for the kids toys....

what are your projects?

what looms do you like?

what stitches do you use the most?

what sites/blogs do you love to visit?

I am doing a scarf. I have no idea how to do anything else on the dang looms. I have the long one and not the round ones. I get kinda confused.

I use my long one to make bags... just knit knit knit knit and then crochet the bottom together to make a flat bag or crochet around and decreasing rows going in to make a round bottom bag or just gather like a hat for a sack type bag...

Have you ever seen these sites? They have tons of ideas but I haven't tried anything but bags, hats and a scarf so far.

I was working on an organic cotton blanket but the yarn has no stretch and is driving me batty. After I have all my christmas projects completed I'm going to switch the cotton to crochet and find a new project for the loom.

Amazing site!!!

I've been making some bags out of cotton because it doesn't stretch so they don't gape open... but I do get frustrated esp. as my loom pins keep pulling out when I'm using the cotton yarn.

I have a set of knitting looms and could never complete a project. I'm not sure what's holding me back with them. I guess now it's that I've since taken up knitting in the traditional manner, so there they sit. I guess I'll save them for DD to try in a year or 2.

In the last month I made a pair of wool longies, a baby doll, scarf, tam and I am now making a bag out of recycled plastic bags. I am waiting for my mitten loom so I can make mittens and preemie hats to donate to the local NICU.

I did this pattern, but made her larger and felted her so she doesn't look so grandma-ish. She looks much better in person.

I need to make a large panel of wool felt. I was thinking about just knitting one big panel out of wool yarn and then felting it. I want it to be thick and flat. Any idea what stitch to use on a long loom? I plan to make some wall pocket type things with the wool felt, so I thought maybe double knit would make it thick and nice but I'm not sure how it would felt.
