Got my KK yesterday delivered from HSN. Woohoo! Thought I'd start off slow with a flower on the flower loom. What a mess! I am not sure what happened, but my flower is kind of "wonky". I tried to follow the pictures in the instructions. Lord, help me when I try a hat. Anyone picturing a Dr. Suess hat? Y'all are making such beautiful scarves and hats. I can't even get a flower! Is there hope?Flapper

Try again! I thought I would never get the brim on the hat figured out. Now I get it!

For flowers, I kept trying and got my own way. Not sure if it is right or wrong but they are cute mum looking flower that I love.

Next experiment is making a daisy using a chainstitched yarn.

Hope you try again. I find it so relaxing and love the finished product.

This Jeanne agrees with the above Jeannie! YT is a wonderful tool for those of us that are visual and need to "see" it! BigGrin

Ok girls, I am encouraged. I was sooooo frustrated. It looks so easy, but I kept forgetting where I was on the circle and it was just a mess! Thanks for the encouragement! I'll try again after I get the kids to bed!

I am dyslexic so let's imagine what my first project looked like, ROFL! Trust me I bet your flower is a masterpiece compared to my first try.

Don't start off with a flower do a simple iCord or just practice wrapping.

You Tube is your best friend when learning the looms.My DH is a master knitter so he taught me. He also can traditional knit and has a knitting machine too. My first project was goofy and I struggled but I am pro now. I picked it up in a day.

Once you start it's addicting.

Update: I tried a hat and only made a few boo boos. It looks pretty good! Funny thing, my 17 year old and 13 year old daughters were curious about how the looms worked. Now they both are cranking out scarves right and left. I can't even get any time with the looms because their projects are on them. LOL! They love it. Maybe one day I'll get to knit too. BigGrin
