Coolest. thing. ever.

Knitting looms! I got a set for Christmas, but today is my first time trying them out. I love it! This is probably the coolest crafty thing Ive gotten in a while. I thought it would be weird and complicated, but its ridiculously easy. It seems to go faster than regular knitting, of course this may be psychological, but who cares ;) Its sooo much easier on the hands, so now I can still make stuff even when my hands are hurting so bad from hours of knitting with needles.

So for my very first knitting loom project, Im making yet another man scarf. Light gray this time. When using regular yarn, (as opposed to novelty eyelash yarn, etc.) I definitely prefer the knitting loom over needles. I generally like to work in stockinette stitch, but it tends to roll at the edges which I hate. Its fine on things like sweaters, because you can compensate for it, but on a scarf, not so much. Using a loom makes one seamless tube so there is no rolling of the edges, except at the ends. I love it!


Ladies and gentlemen, I think I have a new addiction.

    Oh knitting looms! I had a selection of those in a fab littl kit when I was a kid... so much fun! I'd love to try them again - it would be nice to balance out my scarf collection with a few cowls! Yours is lovely!
