On and off the loom

Many thanks to Helen for featuring the Daisy Chain Sweater on the home page of her yahoo Knifty Knitter Loom Knitting Group. It is always a privilege to be chosen for the home page. Thank you Helen!
Just off the loom, I am continuing to knit as many small gifts as possible for the holidays. My favorite has been the Poppy Neckerchief, which has proven to be a versatile pattern, working well in DK, Worsted and Chunky weight yarns, as well as 1/2 inch and 5/8 inch gauge looms. The photo today shows it in James C. Brett Marble Chunky yarn, Autumn, worked on a 1/2 inch CinDwood hat loom.
Something new as well, a floppy beret that swirls with a lovely lace pattern. This will be a great pattern, as it works on at least 6 different sized hat looms, in 3 gauges, and in yarns from DK to chunky. The purple hat is worked in Knit Picks DK City Tweed, and has a wonderful soft drape to it. The striped beret is the same pattern, worked in the Brett Marble Chunky to match the little poppy neckerchief. In the chunky, it still has a nice drape, but the lace shows less, so a striped yarn gives the pattern its swirl again. I've shown these to a few friends, and now have more to knit. As always, I'm working on writing the patterns.
Thanks for stopping by, and please leave me a note letting me know how you like these loom projects.
