Best tools, best books what next?
Hi, I'm new to yarn art... Can't knit with needles and anything I crochet turns into a mess...
So I saw someone post on FB one day about knitting a scarf on a loom, went to walmart that night grabbed a long loom set and I'm hooked!!!
So I have been knitting up a storm, doing mostly the figure 8 double knit stitch (although I figured out the other double knit as well, and the ewrap panel knit also)
Now... I want to do more, and better, and cooler... Seems like there is so much out there.
So, firt.... Should I upgrade my loom? I have the long loom set by Boye... is that a good set? Should I get a Martha Stewart? or something else?
Next seems like everyone who is making really cool stuff likes the rounds?? Should i get a round set? I have the #2 round by KK it's nice, except I don't like the tool it came with.
I bought a better knitting tool but the handle is too bulky and it seems heavy.
So what loom do you like and why? What should i invest in.
What about other tools? Was going to try cable knitting because i love the look of the finished product, got tips there?
Give me a list. :)
Next... What are your favorite books on stitches, and such for noobs?? I saw the "loom knitting primer" today via google, is it good? Something better???
Thanks a million for your thoughts!!!
