The Knifty Knitter

I purchased this Knifty Knitter and wondered what I could make with it. It took me awhile to figure out the 4 peg knitting tool and thought that if I could figure out the small one, I could work with the big ones.
Here is what I did with the blue loom. I ended up with a baby hat made out of pink Red Heart Baby Clouds.
My next attempt was with a skein of wool I had purchased with the intention of felting. I doubled it and used the blue loom again. I crocheted a bottom and attached it to the the knitted tube. I crocheted around the top and added the loop. The red flower was made with some other wool I bught to make a purse. It reminds me of an eyeglass holder that someone gave me with a key ring on it. I am not sure how I am going to use this, but I am very happy with the results.

This is a hat I made with the Knifty Knitter. I got the pattern from The Loom Knitting Designs site.

What a beautiful piece of art! I imagine it cheering up a desk, or happily housing your crochet hooks!
Well done. I wish I had your creativity with mixing crochet with loom knitting!
