Winter Hats for My Kids (Loom Knitting)
The blue hat is made with a ball of Wool-Ease that I picked up at a thrift store for $1.50. I was thrilled, because this yarn is regularly priced at over $7 a ball.
I made them each hats last year when I was just learning to Loom Knit, but I did a single stitch and that really didn't create a hat warm enough for MN winter wind. So, I bought this Loom Knitting Primer book that taught me more than the basics that came with the loom set and was able to use a different stitch to create a much, much warmer hat.
I also used a little bit of leftover yarn to add hair to the Monster Stuffies I just finished making as another Christmas present for the kids. That post will appear later this month on Northern Cheapskate.
