Knifty Knitter

I think I may be nesting. I have this overwhelming urge to create things from yarn. I bought this contraption at Meijer's and have not been able to put it down. It is called a Knifty Knitter, and I am an addict.

I have so far made five hats and have started a baby blanket. The only thing holding me back right now is my lack of yarn. I have dreams of knitting scarves for each member of my family, gloves, mittens, afghans and whatever else I desire. I might even try to knit a g-string. Why not? This contraption makes knitting anything so easy. And did I mention it is knifty too?

I am currently experimenting with different styles of hats. I cranked these hats on the right out in an hour each. They are baby hats for The Deuce.

The larger I grow, the less and less I am finding suitable activities to keep me busy. Any sort of physical activity wears me out in 15 minutes. Knitting seems to be the perfect way to keep my idle hands out of the devil's employ.

my friend Katy (the art teacher) has one of these things. She was just as addicted!!
If you make the g-string.. please never show it to me. Some things are better left to the imagination.

Awesome!!! The hats look great, can't wait to see the blanket.

Keep up the good work.

I love the Knifty Knitters too! But I found that the smallest size loomy thingy made hats that were too small for my baby the day he was born, so saddish but oh well.

Love it! I may have to borrow that from you sometime! Not that I have the time to learn how to use it, but it looks so relaxing!
