Let me start this post by saying I cannot knit.
I have had patient friends sit with me for countless hours to teach me how, and I still knit like a two-year-old on a sugar high. Too tight, too crooked, and BACKWARDS.
someone said "You might like a knitting loom!! Those Nifty..." Yeah! but I don't wanna pay for one and then hate it, right?
so I looked at them online and...
THIS was born.
DISCLAIMER: please note that I have never used one of these contraptions before. I have seen them, but functionality flaws may not be obvious to me until I get the hang of this thing.
Started with an empty tobacco can, and removed the bottom:
covered the ends in electrical tape:
I had some thin dowels from the supermegamart from another projet, cut them into 4" pieces and taped off the ends:
suffered a craft inspection, during which the craft was deemed not noms:
glued the dowels on to the can:
mummified the whole thing with electrical tape as in the first pic, and started using it!
Now, there are several things I will do differently next time.
1. pegs stick up too far.
2. better measuring, the pegs are not even
3. maybe smaller/thinner pegs...nails? wire loops?
what do you think?
