Knifty Knitter Speed Tip to Share

It's been less than a week since I learned to use the knifty knitter and I have made 4 scarves and 1 hat.
It can be that fast!
Below is a video showing the knifty knitter weave tool that speeds up the weaving process, but you can achieve the same results by using an empty pen/biro casing or even a straw.




Below is the empty pen/biro casing that I have been using to speed up the weaving process. I learnt this tip from Mikeyssmail video tutorials, he calls it a stylus pen, how stylish.

This is my latest scarf made on the rectangular knitting loom. The yarn I used is in the picture too. The length I have been making the scarves is 60 inches or so.

Correction, this is my latest scarf made on the knifty knitter, I made 2 in a day :)
Below is the yarn I used in the black scarf, it's so soft and fluffy!

I've got one of those looms (got mine from Spotlight) now I know how to use up all my furry yarn I don't like crocheting with YAY

Thank you! (again) for another great idea.

Like others on here, I put my loom away because I couldn't get the hang of casting on. So thank you so much for the video!
I would like to know what yarn was used on the dark blue multi color scarf. I looks nice and thick and soft. Are you using two strands of yarn here too?
Thanks, Misty42

Hello Connie, yes 2 strands of yarn a fuzzy yarn and a plain yarn, I'm in Australia and the plain yarn is 8 ply the fuzzy I am not sure of maybe a 6 ply, glad you got your loom back out they can be loads of fun.
