EFG Sock Loom

by Donna
(St. Louis, MO, USA)

I am desperate! I need to purchase an extra fine loom to knit a Doctor Who scarf for a dear friend. Apparently this is not available *anywhere* so if you know of a place where I can purchase one new or used I appreciate it!


I have bought the Knitting Board All In One and the gauge is too large.

I've checked on etsy, amazon USA, Canada and UK. I've also asked on Craig's list in Missouri. And called knitting stores locally.

Maybe there's a board out there that would help but I'm so new to this that maybe I'm overlooking something.


Thank you for any advice.

Added Questions !! NEW
by: Marilyn Gruber

Hello,

After reading the question about an EFG sock loom, I find I now have some questions of my own. I checked out the Michael's web site and called the local Michael's store. But, could not locate such a loom offered for sale. They do offer the large gauge plastic type and do offer the Martha Stewart loom at Michael's. Can someone share more info with me? A few more details of the EFG type/brand loom at Michael's would help me. I would like to purchase.
Thank you,
Marilyn

UPdate NEW
by: Donna

Ok, so this past week I have learned I need to have a loom that has grooved pegs, that it should have a gauge of 3/16 or 5/16 peg to peg.

I'll look into the Michael's adjustable loom as I do have a 40% off coupon.

Keep giving me input everyone, I appreciate it.

Also I'm bidding on a Da-Loom brand new EFG/FG loom now on e-bay.

small needle knitting loom NEW
by: Marcia

Have you tried just using the largest loom for
the socks to make you scraf? I make scrafs on
the round loom and cast on all hooks but leaving
2 blank, then knit or purl back and forth.
