Default Pic - I made them more sweaters.

Hi all! I've made Shiver and Storm new sweaters. I'm really happy with the outcome of both. The sweaters are SOOOOO soft! I've been having such a hard time taking their pics together, so I tried holding treats in my hand while taking them. Guess what! It worked. Now if I could only get Storm to NOT blink every time!

It's like Storm is saying, "Hey mom, I really want that treat!"
The sweaters look great. Are you using the Knifty Knitter to make them? If so, what yarn do you use? You can tell from the photos that it's very soft.

Yes, they were with the knifty knitter and I'm not sure what kind of yard it was. The cover said Bohemian but I don't know if that's the kind of yarn or the brand name. I've thrown both out now though.

Your Chi sweaters look fantastic.
I've been practicing with my KK. I made the Chi sweater starting with the neck area first so I could do a brim/cuff (it looks more like a mock turtleneck), then did the armholes and knitted the rest for the body. I used the super stretchy bind off for the end. I made a pretty scarf for my daughter, but I have to say, it takes forever to get to 60", so I won't be making another one for awhile. I'm in the process of making a pair of socks (more like slipper socks). I've been experimenting with different kinds of casting off stitches too. I like this site:
http://yarngear.com/looms/tips.htm

It shows different kinds of stitches and casting off methods. The directions for the socks are on here too.

After trial and error, I did a double stitch on the neck part and the bottom part (starting with the bottom and ending with the neck). That's where you wrap the loom 3 times and stitch one over 2. I did that for a few rows so that the neck and bottom weren't floppy.
Now what I'd like to do (now that my dogs are happy) is I'd like to make a blanket. How would I do that though? The long loom seems too small. Anyone ever made a blanket with these?
