Looming with arthritis...

My Mom crocheted for many years but arthritis put a stop to that. She is interested to know if loom knitting is easier on the hands than crochet. If so, is it still difficult to do with arthritic hands, wrists, etc...?

Have ARTHRITIS, and loom knitting
by: Margy

Yes, if you are bothered with arthritis, loom knitting is the way to go.

I have 4 grandchildren, still work PT, and have lots of other "non-paying" jobs/responsibilities.
I used to knit and crochet, but with arthritis in my hands it is painful. I found the loom knitting and have made hats and scarves for family members. Also planning to try to sell some projects for Cancer Awareness project. (My daughter is a cancer survivor)
