Hi! I've always wanted to knit (can crochet a bit), but using standard needles makes me "a danger to self or others" because I drop more stitches than I knit! So I'm delighted with the looming method. So far I've gotten the e-loop (stitch) worked out and finished an itsy bitsy doll hat! So I'm a certified beginner, ready to learn and spread the word (and cover some portion of each family member in some sort of knitting)!
