Green scarf

I’ve decided to try something different for a scarf. I started it early this morning and am using the largest round loom with lion brand thick and quick grass colored yarn. I’m only using 15 pegs for the width and am having a little bit of difficulty with curling but maybe when it is done i can stretch it all out and it will go away :). Anyway it seems to be turning out pretty nicely with just a basic e-stitch.

Plum winter cap

I made this hat on my adult size round loom using Bernat roving plum yarn. The brim is 14 lines of e-stitches and the top part is 26 lines of alternating e-stitches and knit stitches.

Gamecock Scarf

Last week I finally made a lunch hour trip to In the Loop on Devine St. in Columbia. I found some beautiful burgundy colored kid mohair by Nashua Handknits. I decided I’d combine it with some black Yarn Bee Brushed Boucle and see what would happen.

I used a Darice small round loom and started the knitting.

The completed scarf came out very nicely! The mohair was only 98 yards worth so I’ve found that about 100 yards makes a nice long scarf.

Pretty in Pink (Rose Quartz, Actually)

For another Christmas gift this year, I made another tube scarf on the small Darice round knitting loom. I call it Pretty in Pink (even though the yarn is Rose Quartz). The yarn I used is Patons Allure Rose Quartz and I used two skeins of 47 yards each.  Someone this Christmas is going to be Pretty in Pink!

Welcome to No Needle Knitting!

After visiting lots and lots of loom and board knitting sites I finally decided to just start my own site about my new fun hobby. I’ve never tried to knit with needles so I figured this would be a good title: No Needle Knitting. I plan to add photos of my knitting projects here with basic comments about each one. Please feel free to comment or ask questions!

Here is a recent project I finished yesterday morning. It is a super bulky hat made of brown Lion Brand wool (Wool-Ease Thick & Quick). The brim is 10 lines total and above the brim is 28 lines. I used the adult hat size Darice loom I bought from amazon.com. I think it will make a nice Christmas gift!¬† The other little hat behind the unfinished one was a mistake.¬† I guess I could add some ear flaps to it and give it to some kid, but nah…
