Mystery Monday and Tadpole Tuesday in one: Scarves

Okay I know its cheating but I am doing a 2 for 1 post. My post for yesterday didn't get done after I worked my 4th 12 hour shift in a row. I am sorry. But todays is about the same thing so it all works out...right? :) My daughter got a gift from her Aunt Teri several years ago of a knifty knitter loom. On the loom you just figure 8 wrap the yarn up and down the loom to the desired width and then wrap it again the other way. Then you use a little tool to take the bottom yarn over the top one and it knits a scarf. Its so easy!! Well we never did really use it. So this week my friend Amey inspired me to get it out when she used hers to make me a scarf. So I made one, and each of my kids decided that they needed one too. So I took my tadpoles to pick out their yarn and bought the loom for hats too. Well, okay it wasn't just one loom, it was the variety pack of looms. I can't do anything small. I have to get everything that they have out for every project I do.

Absolutely cool. I love that finished scarf. I had no idea it was that easy. I've looked at these looms before and felt intimidated and put them back down. Now I may reconsider.

That is neat. About how long do you estimate this takes? Can people with two left thumbs do it, aka ME??? I would like to make a scarf, but I have no clue how to do this.
