When the Knifty Knitter came out I thought about buying it but decided I had too many crafting topics as it was. IE I wanted to get caught up on my scrapbooking.

Anyway I'm still not caught up on it but just had a baby girl and what to make/get a hat that will fit her head. The beanies I have are too big or too little.

Any tips on getting started... what type of yard would be good for this and really really soft?
Thanks!!!

I have bought both sets of the knifty knitter looms (round & rectangle) from JoAnn's in the last two weeks. I Have made 6 baby hats and 4 toddlar hats with the round ones. IF you have not already bought them do so. They are very easy to use. You will love them once you have them (very addictong).

Depends what you like yarnwise. I have two large garbage bag fulls of yarn I bought at garage sales and I love going through the bags and choosing stuff that I can use for the various projects. On Monday I was at M's in the city and picked yarn that I loved the feel of. I think that's a good place to start! Good luck!

Jeannie, do you knit using needles in addition to using the Knifty Knitter? Your work is beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh thank you!!...I only use the Knifty Knitters... I use a crochet hook to make the ropes that old the pom poms on some of my hats... and the fringe on the bright orange, green and yellow scarf that I made...

The first weekend in October we went to Gatlinburg for our anniversary... it was during the craft fair...I got to meet this wonderful lady that knits for a profession...and has since 1979...she travles everywhere to do demos...and do this amazing work...she so inspired me...that is when I came home and really worked at doing new things.

I also prayed over my looms when I started...and often pray over new projects... I told God that I wanted to be good at this...to really understand it... God is so good!!

So true about the God part of things. He really blesses things and us when we ask Him to. I once borrowed a friends skill saw and he was giving me some tips to using it and at the end added he always says a prayer first. :)
Obviously knitting isn't going to take off a finger but I could see prayer helping just the same.

BTW, you can purchase a small ring that is just the perfect size for babies, and so soft and cuddly when made with some of the wonderful baby yarns available. Plus this same loom can be made with the felting yarn for bottle cozies ... they really turn out cute!
