*Knitting on a loom: There are two ways to go about this as I'm aware of. The first is using one of those currently trendy devices like the Knifty Knitter or a peg loom (I have a set of KK's that I bought on a whim). The other way is to knit on an actual weaving loom. Years ago, I picked up a 44-page booklet entitled "Knitting on the Loom" by Birgit Olson Barron (1988). I've been planning to set up a warp and try it out this summer. It is a method that incorporates knitted stitches within the woven cloth. Any loom that can be set up for a 50/50 plain weave structure can be used—rigid heddle on up. The loom is warped, and away you go.

Yes, I certainly do intend to one day be:
  • designing knitted garments
  • knitting for a living
  • publishing a knitting book
  • writing a pattern
I don't know how, but I know that I want to. It's possible. Difficult, I imagine, but possible. If others have done it before, then it's possible. Others have done it... why NOT me?
