Loom Knitting Products Are Increasing.

I love Loom Knitting, and i think the more people that are introduced to it, the more popular it will become.
By introducing the
Knifty Knitter Round Loom Set With Hook & Bag

,Provocraft produced an economical loom that could be tried by thousands and if Loom Knitting is for you. There are other brands that are reasonable and great for starting. I have been using mine for about two years now, and I have made hats, shrugs,mittens, skirts, stuffed animals. There is the
"Zoom Loom 13"" Oval"

which is wooden and it is still reasonably priced. Of course if you shop at Joann you can always get some kind of discount There are wonderful patterns for items that can be loom knitted. Because of the increased interest in loom knitting, some wonderful books and patterns have been created. Two of which are this great book with lots of information and [patterns. The patterns included baby blanket, toddler sweater, hats,fingerless mittens,socks,and lots of other tips and information you will not want to miss. I love my book and I am considering buying a second copy since mine is greatly used.

Loom Knitting Primer: A Beginner's Guide to Knitting on a Loom, with 30 Fun Projects

Another great book is this one from In the Attic. Thes patterns ar all for round looms, but they are easy to understand and see how quickly you can create hats, Christmas stockings and more.

Round Loom Knitting Patterns

So many great new products for our Loom Knitting pleasure. I am so glad I started this craft.
It has actually helped me, I got hurt about a year and a half ago, and I have chronic pain. I can't sit for long periods of time but loom knitting has been a blessing because it can be done in many different comfortable positions for me.
So I am just trying to let other people know how wonderful a craft loom knitting is, and how many lovely and wonderful items can be created.That's why I created Looming With Sue. to talk about loom knitting.
