Moving right along with my bandage loom. As you can see I am using 100% mercerized cotton. The process is starting to speed up a bit. Now I must admit there are a few other things in the works too. Having fun with them all. I am enjoying doing the bandages this way.

OH my so sorry for the blurr. Can't you tell I am still learning? Well this is my very first Double Pointed Needle hat. It is supposed to be a spiral. Think I will try it in a solid color next. Maybe the picture will be better too. So much fun. Need to get back to it.

The bandages done on this loom is from 100% mercerized cotton, size 10. It must be in either white or ecru. The loom is 4 inches. Each bandage must measure 4 feet. You can also make them 3 inches if you prefer. They are being sent to Global Health Ministries through Loves Many Cloths yahoo group. Please see my links to join us. Other questions may be answered through the group.
I want to thank everyone who has shown an interest in these.

A beautifully made specialty loom from decoraccentsinc.com. This is used in making leper bandages. Now it is small but as you can see in the picture it has a tube to run your thread through. I am in the process of learning how to use it. I am new to looming and have never used one like this. Right now it is tedious but I am determined.
Now on another note: I frogged the DP hat. Those things are awkward to use. I may try my hand at it later. The trouble started when I tried to knit in a little pattern. I think if I start with just plain knitting I may be able to do it. Looms, hats and bandages are holding my interest right now. I want to be able to make cloths on it too. But not to worry the needles and hooks are not in the plans to put down. I enjoy all of it.

I am enjoying my Knifty Knitter. A person can whip up a hat in no time at all. Also have been enjoying the needles. Now knitting has never been my prefered method of working with yarn. But this is fun. Maybe because it is for charity. Everything is given away. These hats are slated for Michelle at Loves Many Cloths. We started out with cloths and have recently expaned to leper bandages and hats. If you like to make projects for charity come join us. We would love to have you.

Here is the start of my first try with double pointed needles. It is a shame that WalMart doesn't sell these. I want to thank my Mother for sending me hers. They are a size 7 and I am attempting to knit a baby hat. Now this hat is going to have something else that I have never done. there will be a little design knitted into it. Sure hope that I have patience enough to do it. My goal is to post this finished rolled brim hat.
