Socks are amazing to create. A bit of magic happens when you are playing with your yarn and loom.
These simple plastic looms are a larger version of the old "knitting Nancy" so many of us played with as children, but can be used to make all manner of useful and attractive items.
It all starts just like a hat, just a simple tube and then you begin knitting a flat panel.
You incorporate a few short rows and you have as if by magic made a small cup to fit your heel perfectly.
This book includes everything you need to know to master round and straight loom knitting, quickly and easily - from technical know-how to instantly appealing designs.
It is easy and fast and you will be getting the technique down in a few hours.
Socks are the perfect project to have lying around. Pick up whenever, add a few rows while watching TV and in no time you will have made the basis of an amazing sock puppet for your little one to decorate.
Now that you have made up the base for the sock puppet your little Poppit can add the buttons, the ribbons, the bundle of wool scrap hair, in fact anything that they want to put on it.
