Amcarver

I just bought the boye looms rectangle and circular i am trying to learn how to make an afghan using them. I did notice that a peg comes out and it opens up but it appears that it is sort of a "V" shaped when i do that. I really want to understand these looms.

Amcarver and Boye Looms NEW
by: Jen Tavernier

I haven't used the BYE looms. kinda leery, because I don't care for the way their pegheads are shaped with the slot. - but! There is a lot of help and looming goodness available where you can check and ask questions, interactively from those who have them!
