You can increase and decrease in the looms, it just takes a bit of practice. You can make hats, scarves, blankets, bags, socks.....

It just takes a bit of creativity~

Last night I had to run to Target *shivers at prices* since my mom needed some food-stuffs and it's right down the street.

I shoved my yarn ball into my back-pack and took it with me, crocheting as I slowly walked through the isles. A few times my yarn got snagged so I undid a few feet of yarn and wrapped it around my arm. I think it was very relaxing, since I really hate Target x.x

Oh my god, same here! xD It got up to 110* with 75% humidity... O__O
You wouldn't think it would get that hot in Indiana! x___x

I recently opened an Etsy shop guys! :D *dances*
I only have two items up, but it's a start. I figured I might as well try to sell off some of these items that I never wear/use. :P

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.

I'm crocheting this pet bed for my kitty cat right now (it's actually just about done, but I ran out of fuzzy yarn so I'm about to go get some and finish it). It's a good way to use up leftover skeins of worsted weight yarn, because the colors of the worsted weight don't matter all that much. I've managed to use up some green I had, sparkly white, regular white, grey, and light purple. So, the original colors went from white, sparkly white, green, grey, and fuzzy yarn colors (grey, white, blue) to white, black, a different green, light purple, lol.

This is mine so far:

My mother sort of taught me how to knit. She learned from her grandmother.

I started out with a very plain blueish colored yarn, trying to knit something simple like a potholder. Needless to say, some rows mysteriously gained or lost a stitch or whatever one calls it.

It looks very uneven.

I was hoping to be able to use this lovely soft cashmere like fuzzy purple yarn to knit a scarf, but I guess I have a few more things to learn before I can use that.

*sigh* I guess I should find my yarn bag and resume making my terrible excuse for a potholder (I am ashamed to admit that I didn't finish it yet). Well, it goes under the pot, so I guess no one will notice the missing and extra stitches. That is, until the pot is taken off.

Knit one, peal two. Knit one, pearl two. -_____-

Just keep practicing! Everyone loses/gains stitches at first. :) A scarf is actually a very good way to practice, if you have some cheap yarn you don't mind using that way. Of course, you can always undo it and wind the yarn back into a ball (http://www.wikihow.com/Wind-a-Yarn-Ball I use the second, center pull method).

Haha, this was my problem with my first project too! It looks like a mess! Just keep practicing! I also used this bulky weight yarn that was all fuzzy, so it was hard for me to see how many stitches I had. It's best to start out with a plain worsted weight yarn as a starter. Keep up with the basic knit and pearl stitches until you get a hold of the basics. ;) Then you can start to do cables and lace work! :D
