Magic Loop Hat
Hi! I took a class at my Mom's LYS and we learned how to do magic loop - it was really confusing at first, but now I love it!! I haven't been knitting for very long and I was deathly afraid of dpns!! So, this was perfect for me!! :-) I had so much fun, I made a 2nd one for my friend!

They look fantastic! Looks like you really got the technique down. The colors are great too.

Magic Loop is great, especially for socks, hats, or any time you would use dpn's. The hats are really cute, good work!

Thanks! I just used Yarn Bee Soft Illusions from Hobby Lobby - It is a super chunky yarn with an eyelash wrapped around it - the first hat was red yarn with a variagated purple, turquoise and yellow and the 2nd hat was white with purple, pink and green. My mom and sister picked on me when I bought the yarn for the first one, they thought the colors were too bright and didn't go well together, but they liked the hat when I finished it!

I really like doing magic loop, but I think I would have had a hard time learning it if I hadn't taken a class. And, I probably wouldn't have had the guts to take a class if my mom hadn't taken it too! Too bad I had to come home after the holidays! I will have to find my own LYS!

They look great! Congrast on learning ML too! That's my method of choice for small diamter knitting. Glad you got your first taste of classes too. See, they aren't all that scary are they? Hope you take some more now that you're home.
