    I have recently taken up loom knitting and I LOVE IT! It is so easy and so much fun. Visit my blog at http://theloomybin.blogspot.com to see the hats I have made for charity.

    Penny-



    I've never knit before. I've tried to learn, and can't get the hang

    of it. I can do basic crochet, and when I was little, I could make

    scarves, but have LONG since lost the ability to remember how to do

    that.



    Anyway, to the point- is it hard to loom knit if you've never really

    knitted before? I've been eyeballing looms for a while now, but I

    don't have anyone who can teach me how, so I wasn't sure it would be

    easy to do on my own.



    With taxes coming back soon, I'd like to try it, maybe.

    When I bought my set of looms, there was a simple instruction sheet written in 4

    languages telling you exactly how to make hats from baby to extra large. The

    one hook you need comes with the looms also. Remember as a kid (depending on

    how old you are) the wooden spool with the nails, lifting the bottom loop over

    the top? That is exactly what this is. It really isn't knitting but when you

    are finished with the hat it looks just like you knitted it. Really easy!

    This is so much easier than trying to get 2 needles in two different hands to

    cooperate. As the previous person said, there are books but there are many free

    patterns on the internet that do not cost anything (and since this is budget101

    the free internet patterns seem like they make more sense).

    Thank you, Sara!



    I'll have to see about getting a loom when our taxes come in (state

    will be deposited on Monday- yay- groceries!), and a skein of yarn

    to learn on.



    There is a program that can capture video clips and save them so

    that you can re-watch them called Camtasia Studios. My husband works

    as tech support for it. You can get a 30-day trial on the website:

    techsmith.com
