Something New

My sister-in-law and I had a nice telephone visit Christmas day. She told me that when she and my brother were under mandatory evacuation from their mountain home this past month due to the wild fires in the Big Bear area there was little enough time to grab the dogs and flee. As they were waiting to hear daily/hourly whether they had a home to return to or not she found that time was on her hands. She went to Jo-Ann's and discovered Round Loom knitting.She went to town keeping her hands busy [and perhaps her mind somewhat occupied] while making one project after another. In fact, she made of number that were given as gifts at Christmas.Well, needless to say, I was intrigued enough to go to the Internet and Google round loom knitting and found a whole 'nother world on the net.Day after Christmas I went to Jo-Ann's and have been busy trying my hand at this new knitting method.Wait, wait, I know - - - - we all know about spool knitting that we did as kids so the method is 'new'. It's just that I'd never heard about this round loom knitting. Also found square and rectangular looms also.Here are my first attempts.

Ted E and his pal waiting to go deer hunting in their new hats ! ! ! Wouldn't want to mistake one of these guys for a deer.

Here's a work in progress from the working side of the loom.

And the reverse of the loom and the 'right side' of the project showing the hem/brim.

Can't wait to wear it ! ! !
