Size of round knitting looms, baby socks and a recipe!

Readers have written with questions on the sizes of the plastic looms out there,
so I thought I would post that info. And, in case I forget, you will need
either the 36 pegged loom or the 31 pegged loom for the Chemo Night Caps
if you want to make any for my 'Relay For Life' Sale (see yesterday's message):

I have used it to make wonderful drawstring bags.

4 looms and a tool from'In The Attic'
Now, I have to say, that even though
I don't make any money on the ITA Flexilooms,
I absolutely LOVE them!
They are so soft to use and that helps my hands. =)
Make sure you tell Bret and Nicole that Bev sent you.
We are friends. =)

Now- a pattern to share.
Today I thought I would share the tube
sock for babies pattern as so many hospitals love those!
I am starting to work on those for LDS Women's Conference


Bev's Loomed Tube Booties for Newborns
Copyright 2006 Beverly A. Qualheim - All Rights Reserved
loomed tube sock for newborns
The bootie loom I used has 12 pegs 3/4" apart, but I am sure you could use any newborn bootie loom
and about 1 oz of 4 ply yarn. (I used Simply Soft for the bootie in
the photo) 1 strand

You will be using 1 strand throughout and double stitch
= wrap loom 3 times around and lift 1 strand over 2.

Starting: E-wrap the loom, 3 times around,
Lift 1 wrap over 2 wraps all around the loom.
Do 18 rows or about 2"
Bring up the inside and loop it over the pegs to form a brim
for the bootie.
Knit off the brim.

Continue wrapping and knitting till the
full length bootie is 5.5" long from the top of the brim.
Remove bootie from loom with the gathering method,
just like you would remove a hat.

Using a G hook make a 15" chain using a contrasting color and weave
through the bootie right under the brim for a tie.

Make another tube bootie to match.

Hi Lisa,
I don't need yarn currently. 2 companies sent us some donated yarns, for Crafting Angels, and for me to personally use for charity projects. =)

I actually need knitting looms to sell at the Relay for Life. I need to order those from In The Attic, real soon. I just got paid from my Google Ads so we should be good.

HUGS!!
And thanks for coming to my blog!! I love having visitors. =)
