Chunky Funky Asia Yarn Loom Hat

Blogged under Finished Projects,Loom Knitting by Tammy on Friday 6 January 2012 at 12:17 pm

After getting some amazing yarn at a local yarn shop recently, I then had to figure out what to make with it. My new rule for myself now that I’m discover “the good stuff” as far as yarn goes is that I am not allowed to buy more fancy yarn until after I make something with the fancy yarns I just bought. At first I was thinking of making a scarf with the swirly yarn pictured (la lana Asia from Italy), but then I realized that it kind of looks good next to the purple wool I had bought. Plus, as a beginning knitter, I would not be able to knit very well with this stuff. So instead, I brought out the old knitting loom and made a hat.

I purchased two skeins of this yarn, so I’m making two hats, one for me and one for a friend. I love how knobby and bumpy this yarn is and the wonderful swirl of colors. Now I just need to finish the purple scarf to go with it, and I will be allowed to go back to the yarn shop again.
