A Great fun product

Its easy, fun and you can make some great practical things to wear. I have made jackets, cardigans, waist-coats, hats, arm warmers, neck warmers, round scarves/snoods and other fun things. It is fast and easy once you have the hang of it. I love to crochet now I have to say my 1st love is looming. The best looms that I have, for comfort and value for money is the Knifty knitter. I have others but they are made of light-weight material, they just don't feel right but these have a little more weight to them. I think too that they will last for years.


I would love to see a book produced with all sorts of patterns in, not just hats. With the imagination of us loomer's we could create a great book.

You don't have to spend a lot too on wool. I use wool that my friends and family discard and when I have enough I double up the yarns. I also look out to great value pack on ebay. I found you also use less wool then traditional knitting.
