FAVORITE KNITTING LOOMS BY DIANNE

A FEW OF MY LOOMS (OTHERS HAVE PROJECTS IN THEM)
I have been looming for a little over 2 years and like many others I am totally obsessed with this wonderful productive past time. I started out with the round KK's and still love and use them quite often. They are inexpensive and definitely have an important place in looming. I began to venture out into the loom world with wooden looms, boards, rakes of all different gauges and absolutely falling in love with the beauty and practicality of these wonderful tools. My favorite looms are from Decor Accents, Markham and Authentic Knitting Board. I do have my very favorite and they are my AJAL, Wonderloom, Infinity Looms and efg oval sock loom (all from Decor Accents. My favorite dishcloth loom is Penny's rake from Markham's. I find that the looms with nylon pegs are much easier to use than the cotter pins though I do love my Penny's rake with cotter pins. I am excited about the revolution of the new looms geared at changing gauges and think this will be a great thing to watch as they get better and better. I would like to see more ergonomic picks with different sharpnesses for using with different gauges.
