The Loom Fiasco

I am currently working on a loom knit fish pillow. Now, you would think that this would be easy. I know I did. I thought I would have a blast making it. But, my friends...THIS FISH PILLOW, IS EVIL! You have to increase, and decrease. I am still not entirely comfortable doing either, and I am CONSTANTLY fearful. You see, to inc or dec on a loom, you have to remove loops of yarn, from pegs. I am always afraid, that I will lose the loop, once it is removed, and will then have to start over. It is very unnerving.
