Livia, I don't know what size I used. I just went to the hardware store and asked for cotter pins and they only showed me one size and that's what I used. I think the size of the pins (or whatever you use for pegs) would make some difference in the gauge of the knitting (gauge=how many stitches per inch) though.

Be sure to use a large enough can if you intend to make leg warmers. After Thanksgiving I used a can that held pureed pumpkin to make a knitting loom and it seems a good size to make small sized leg warmers.

Maybe someday I'll write a tutorial for fingerless mittens, but for those who can't wait I just found this one

Artjunkie, I'm no expert on socks (I could maybe do a tutorial on fingerless mittens though?). But there are many free tutorials for making socks on knitting looms on the internet. Just do a search for them. Here's one to get you started though.

It uses a blue Knifty Knitter loom, but you can use a handmade loom made out of can (or other round object) if it's big enough.
