Loom Knitting Socks
The striped "sample" is my needle knit sock that was given me by my friend. The autumn colored "sample" is a swatch that I knitted on my sock loom. I don't know about you but I think I have achieved success!
I bought the book "Loom Knitting Socks: A Beginner's Guide to Knitting Socks on a Loom" by Isela Phelps recently and read the technical part of the book. I am using a loom made by her husband in 2006 but just now got around to using it. These looms are sold on DA Looms but no longer by the Phelps.
There are 4 ways to make a knit stitch on the loom and my goal was to get the same gauge and look as my hand knitted socks. 3 of the 4 stitches look just like those in my sock but I definately have a preference as to ease of creation and the tension of the completed stitch. Now I just need to figure out how many pegs I need to get my size sock and I think I will embark on my first pair of loom knit socks!!
