Loom Knitting

Angus and I were looking at looms when we were in Spotlight last week. I never knew how easy it was to use them until I saw this video.


I'm seriously thinking I might just have to get a set of looms now. 
It looks so much easier than using a pair of needles!

It does look so easy. I have been thinking about getting a knitting loom as well. My mom has one and she loves it.

Well that looks easy. Reminds of the spool knitting I did as a kid.

Cate, it does look really easy doesn't it :) Perhaps we should both get one

Marti, it reminded me of the same thing. We used to make them using wooden sewing spools and nails. I think it was called French knitting.

I know you said this looks easy to you, but to me it looks really tedious. Maybe that's because of my arthritic hands. All I could think about was how painful it would be to keep rubbing up against that hard plastic! ^_^ Oh well...I'll keep my crocheting going and just admire those of you who easily can do this one!

Poetess, your crochet is an art form all on its own :) I'll test drive a loom and you keep on crocheting

Loom knitting is so much fun and there are so many stitches you can try.
