my Beloved Little Peg Loom

Someone asked about the peg loom I used to knit the pastels baby hat.

Here is a close-up of the pegs.

and the way I do the knitting

I am holding a pick in my left hand, and working the yarn along with my right

this second hat took about 6 hours actual time knitting

many Thanks to my husband, George Wiman for his photography skills

Any other questions, ask in e-mail.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Lookin’ good! I’m guessing from the photo that this is another hand-made loom? Lotsa tiny pegs on this one! I usually do the ‘knitting’ part holding the loom in my left hand while doing the ‘work’ with my right – never tried it laying the loom on a flat surface…interesting idea!

    George did do a good job on photographing your loom. It looks like this new hat is going to be a lovely white!

    Yes, it is handmade from Decor Accents. There are 64 pegs, mebbe 2.5mm or the size of a B/C crochet hook. Which is why the enlarged pegs look so neato!

    the flat surface is a lap table bought at a yard sale. There is a cushion on the underside, and a little ridge across the front so things don’t slide too far.
    It’s great for when I go to the park and sit in a lawn chair, or on the couch with my feet on the ottoman.
    The wooden peg looms are more heavy than plastic, and with my wrists and carpal tunnel problems, I came up with a pretty good solution to keep knitting.
    I’m left-handed, which is why the pick gets used thataway.

    Actually, I thought the yarn was a shiny white, but in sunlight, there are hints of pastel colors. It is quite lovely. It was in a donation bag, so I don’t know the brand, else I would buy a basketful 🙂
    I have enough for 2 more hats, so others will get a treat all over again.

    also, the flat surface allows me to do the purl stitch, which is what I was working
    As I got towards the middle of the crown, I worked a row of purl, then e-wrap, purl, e-wrap, purl
    then finished to the top with e-wrap
    It came out cute, much adoring during church Fellowship Hour.
    I don’t have a picture of it done.
