Knitting loom machine question

If you were only able to buy one knitting machine which one would you pick? Is there anyway to adjust the size on them?

Help! (Afghan loom)

My husband’s aunt gifted me the KB afghan loom that she tried but gave up on. I have no prior loom or knitting experience. The beginning was tough but I just got into the groove when I noticed a slipped stitch that I thought that I had fixed. Do I have to start over completely? Any other suggestions?

I have to admit that part of me wants to start over so that I can rip out half the pegs and use a thicker yarn. 😂

Tried eyelets today

Using Aran yarn (the mint I posted recently) and did garter stitch with eyelets, this is what I managed. My aran yarn is slightly thicker than #4 I think? And using a 3/8 loom makes the eyelets smaller but I think it looks quite nice!

Bought some looms from the thrift store. How do I find out what size yarn to use with them?

There isn't any indication of what size looms they are. About all that I know about them is that they're rectangular, lol.

Second finished blanket of the year!

This blanket is the rare piece I’ve kept for myself (and am already using). It’s 70 x 63 inches, and took 56.5 hours over 26 days. It’s entirely made of Juicy Couture Luxe Velour Sparkle yarn and is one of the softest, most comfortable yarns I’ve ever used.

Project ideas

This is the 7/16" 30 peg child slipper/ small adult glove loom. I bought it intendingto follow a pattern from scarlett royale But it didn't work out. Does anyone have other suggestions for project ideas so it doesn't just sit in my pile?

Berroco vanilla Socks

This is my first pair of socks using Berroco sock yarn. (Color 14101) The heel,cuff and toe are Patons Kroy charcoal. Oddly , IRL, the color way is more purple than in photos. I was disappointed with the actual colorway as it looked more pink in the photos on the website. Still a great yarn , very soft feel for a wool. just beware the colors don’t present true in photos.

It’s coming along!

Almost 4yo for scale 😉 working on my afghan to gift to my nephew for his high school graduation! I have until May 18! This is two cakes of Caron colorama halo in beet red and ultra marine. I have 2 more of each color… but I’m not sure if I will use it all! I’m really happy with the phasing, and with how it looks together. My nephews school colors are red and baby blue so I thought I’d go close but not exact and didn’t want solid color stripes. He has no idea it’s coming ❤️

I’m realizing that if I do this for each nibling, I might have to start the next one right away to keep ahead of a massive pileup in a few years! 🤣 (they are aged 14,11x2, 10, 9x2, 8,6, 3,2, 6m. Not to mention my kids at 9 and almost 4)

Anyone know how to do these bubble like ridge stitches? (or have a pattern). I can’t even figure out what it’s called.

My dad got me some yarn

It's a nice minty colour, looks more colourful in real life but not sure what to make with it! Any ideas? I have 2x 400g balls of this colour which is roughly 800m per ball.

U-wrap?

I don't U-wrap in my knitting, but with U-wrap is it like flat knit stitch? When the project is finished do I need to stretch my work out?

Zippy Loom Blanket?

I've knitted on round looms, and done a bit on a long loom. I think I'd like to make a lap blanket or maybe even a full-sized blanket on a loom, but I want thick, luxurious material, and that means double knitting. I don't want to sew the panels together either, so I'd like the long loom to be as long as the blanket is wide.

I think my only option is the Zippy Loom. Can the Zippy make tight fabric using super bulky yarn, or will I really need jumbo? How can you calculate how many yards are needed? The available charts don't seem to include the technique of double knitting. Is it just twice as much?

Is there a better way of making a thick lap blanket in a reasonable amount of time that I haven't thought of?

A bag!

It's technically finishes, I just need to find a way allow me to fasten the flap shut, maybe buttons! Anywho - it is finished! Only took me a couple of hours and it's for my 10 year old niece, she picked the yarn and basically threw it at me begging for a little bag! I hope to get better at bags as this was fun to make!
