Got my first set when I was put on Bed rest thought it would be a great project to start since I basically had 7 months free to do what I want. Went to Walmart and bought my first loom set it was very cheap along with the yarn it cost me about $12 dollars for the loom set and about 13 dollars for the yarn. First project was a baby hat made with size 4 bulky yarn white with little splashes of color threw the yarn, came out so professional and looked like I hand knitted it. It was amazing, next week went and bought 3 books 2 were 0.99 cents and the 3rd book was 14.99, each filled with amazing patterns. So continued to make more hats have a total of 6 hats for a baby. Then went back and bought the purple Rectangular loom and made a baby blanket cut the pattern in half and made it 3 feet long and about 2 1/2 foot wide, got online and learned to crochet borders now I am out of beginner mode and moving to expert and its so easy recommend everybody to try this project cheap and very easy. great way to release stress.
