loose & larger gaps NEW

Hi there,

1st thought is that because the yarn twists naturally, on top of it being twisted, and you are going in one direction, there will be a natural displacement/tension pulling.There is also a natural stretch, and that needs to be worked in. Suggestion, look up blocking knitted items.

The answer to that one is BLOCKING. (Ie, reshaping, scrunching, letting the yarn relax back into an even tension that spreads all through the product. It really works!

The other suggestion, (since I don't really run into this, (and it gets better the more you loom, lol), is to come over to facebook, and search "Looming groups". There are several, and the are fun and interactive for all skill levels. Too very active and helpful ones are Good Knit Kisses, It's all about yarn baby, and knifty knitter loom creations.

It is all about loomers helping loomers, and showing off projects (photos), and hepful with any questions. Look on youtube (start your query with Loom Knit" ie, loomknit+end stitches too loose? There are also also a zillion bolgs, and you find those, by searching "loom knitting blogs".

Aside from Facebook, which is an amazing live resource, here is Kristen's GoodKnitKisses Vid page: http://www.goodknitkisses.com/Resources/loom-knitting-videos-by-title/
