*Pretty Peds!

PrettyPedsHomeI am so excited that I finally get to share these babies with you all! 🙂  I tend to keep working on  projects that have to be kept top secret, and so I have a lack of fun things to share on the loomy front, lol.

I was asked in April if I’d be willing to create a special project for the release of a brand new and innovative loom from Decor Accents…the Even Knit Sock Loom!  Of course I jumped at the chance to play with this new toy, and let me tell you, I LOVE IT!  It’s now my most favorite loom, as it is so easy on the hands and wrists to use!  Also, the stitches it creates definitely live up to it’s name…they’re even and absolutely perfect!  🙂  It’s as simple as doing the e-wrap, but with the same results as using the knit stitch!

This project took me 3 run-throughs before I figured out the exact construction, but now it works just grand.  Let me tell you, I really love wearing these cuties!  I get to feel a little bit like a princess and keep catching myself looking at my feet, lol! 😉  They’re so pretty…and that stretchy sock yarn from Patons is the perfect match for this project.  I highly recommend it. 🙂

So…what are you waiting for???  Hop on over to dalooms.com to pick up your copy today, and check out that awesome loom!!!

PS: You may have noticed a new video tutorial on the Twisted Stitches Pretty Peds-close uppage.  Well…this was sneakily placed there in anticipation of the posting of this new pattern, for it involved a brand new technique I like to call the Picot Cast On, as well as the Picot Bind Off, and Edging.  So don’t forget to check out the video for extra help in how to create this very cute embellishment style!

    Cool, but you show the cast on, not the cast off, yours have already been cast off in the video. I tried to make them but got this far and had to take it apart because I couldn’t figure it out. Maybe you could write me and tell me how to cast off with the picot or explain what I might be missing from the video.

    Thanks,

    Slim

    Hi, Slim!

    I featured the Picot Cast On in the video because I figured that this particular technique would be much easier to understand if a person could actually see the process. The Picot Bind Off is a much simpler procedure and is described in the pattern notes section of the pattern.

    It states:
    “Picot Bind Off:
    • *EW and KO 5 (4) times on 1st
    BO peg.
    • Move loop from 2nd BO peg to 1st
    BO peg, KO.
    • Move loop back to 2nd BO peg.
    • Repeat from * to last BO peg.”

    Pretty easy! Whenever the pattern says to use the Picot Bind Off, just follow these simple steps and you’ll be well on your way. 🙂
    Hope this helps!
