  1. Thank you so much for all your loom patterns and videos. Thank you for teaching me how to loom on circular loom. I have made your teddy bear and your tennis booties for my friends and family. I was wondering if you have made videos for the following items: Mary Jane baby shoes on circular loom, Baby cardigan/sweater on circular loom, sock monkey doll on circular loom, or sock monkey booties or sock monkey hat on circular loom . I have had a very hard time finding patterns and videos for these items. Your videos are the best and I would to learn from you. As always these items are for personal use only. i will continue to view your videos and follow this blog for new circular loom creations. Thank you for all your time! Happy circular loooming!!!!!!

    1. Thank you very much for your comment, I am glad the videos have been so helpful. I have had a few requests for Mary Jane baby shoes and sweaters. There are plans to start working on these projects. I do not already have patterns for these items worked up. I usually go online and scour the images for specific items in crochet and traditional knitting and figure out how I can convert the item. I then go in and make sure no one has loomed the item already, if not I go ahead and work the pattern up. I have a list written and will do my best to get to requests people have made and get some video and patterns out to you. Thank you again for your support!!!!

  2. This is a wonderful instruction and video that you have provided. I had no idea of what my round loom could create. You are very easy to follow on your videos. Can wait to make their booties tonight! Then as the little feet grow I may be into trouble. TO increase to a larger bootie would you use one thickness of yarn or go to a larger loom. Hmm I guess I will find out after little feet grow and experimentation. Thanks again for a wonderful learning tool!

  3. I am new at this! I was just wondering if I can use the Boyer flower loom for these shoes? They are adorable! My youngest brother and his wife are expecting their first baby And I want to make them something really special for baby girl Lily! These look perfect! My brother has had a hard life, we lost both our parents in 2004 only 2 months apart and have no grandparents left. I want to try and fill that empty space in his heart by doing things for baby that they would have done. Thank you so much for this pattern!

    1. They can be made on the boye looms just so long as it is a 24 peg loom. :-) I would suggest knitting the soul area rather than E-Wrap which will make them smaller. I completely understand wanting to make some special things for the new baby coming into the world, my grandmother would have crocheted my baby some stuff I am sure if she were alive. So I decided to learn to crochet, and this was one of those projects I incorporated some crochet for the trim.

  4. Is there an update video to the crochet part of booties. I would consider myself intermediate and was able to almost make the whole bootie but can not understand the last part. Thank you for taking time up of your life and sharing your patterns.

    1. I am afraid not on the crochet part, but I have a new camera that would probably look clearer then the one I originally filmed with. I will put it on my list of something to add on to. Glad you enjoy my patterns, always wonderful to hear. :-)

  5. Thanks so much for your tutorial. I am a beginner and would love to finish this bootie. Could you do one for beginners? I got stuck at decreasing and how did you tie on your new colour? I couldn't see it clearly. Help :)
