I've tried and tried to learn to knit, but could never master it...My stitches were either too tight or too loose....I loved to crochet, but now my arthritis has made it painful to hold the needle...So I tried the Knifty Knitter Loom and Voila!!! I can do this!!!! I've made 2 magic scarfs with fun fur!!! I love my Knifty knitter!!!
