I Madisson, knitted an entire scarf.
It doesn’t fall apart, it looks like an actual scarf and works like an actual scarf.

This is a miracle.

What do I owe my newfound glory as a knitting queen to?

This little plastic piece of joy.

This is a Zippy Loom  you can buy your very own at your local Micheals store and bask in its greatness.  I found the Zippy on a whim while on one of my many Micheal store trips.  To be quite frank I was feeling pretty defeated when it came to knitting because nothing I tried was working out so I thought why not try out this little plastic thing.  Initially I was VERY confused.  The instructions were quite vague and left out several important details needed for success.  My next stop was to check out youtube on the ‘tube’ I found a couple of videos I watched obsessively.  Here are a couple I found:

The first one I watched was this Crafting with Claudie video;

This video was a good jumping off point and allowed me to understand a bit more about how to set up the yarn and using the hook.  Still after watching this video more times than I care to admit I was finding my scarf wasn’t getting longer like Claudie’s was.  Confused, discouraged and wishing I would have picked french as a learning project, I asked my dear friend Hailie to assist me.  She figured out the reason why my scarf wasn’t working was I was wrapping the yarn around each beg 2 times when in fact I was supposed to be wrapping it around only once.  Once we figured this out it was life changing.

Things started flying once I figured out how to work this magic plastic.

    This is super cool! My sister has a little loom like that, but it’s circular so she can make a toque. I don’t think she has ever tried it before but after seeing how great your scarf turned out I think I should convince her to give it a try!!

    I had no idea something like this existed. I learned how to knit years ago however, do not have the patience for it but with the zippy loom I may actually have a chance in sticking with it. Your scarf looks great. I am excited to see more of your knitting creations!
