    I always tried to knit the traditional way, but with two kids jamming around, I was always concerned with the whole "poking an eye out" thing. There is also one child in this house that likes to unravel projects. Sigh. Last week, I bought a circle loom and am totally hooked. Now I am fighting for the loom with my 5 yo daughter. She loves to do it too. [​IMG] Off to the craft store to get more yarn and looms.

    I can just see it now...all my hens running around the yard with hand loomed hats and matching scarves. [​IMG]

    I can knit, but this loom knitting is so much easier and faster. Yesterday I bought the long loom kits and my kids have each started a project. There a lots of projects you can do with these.

    I have never tried any kind of knitting, but I saw the loom knitting kits at Hobby Lobby and it looked easy enough for me to manage. I might just go and get one to try now that you said it was easy and fun.

    Quote:Have you loomed on the outside of the long looms. Like in a U shape? I am having some trouble figuring out how to wrap the yarn on the return.

    I want to get a set of these looms for the Kid's Club but I can only one set in El Paso and it is the long looms. What do you make with the long ones?

    Quote:Scarves. But you can make ALOT of stuff with those things. Our feed store has some sparkly scarves and hats made with those looms.

    I know you can make those with the round ones, but they work with the oval or long ones too?

    The long ones made wide scarves. The round ones make hats.
