The littlest loom at work (and I found Isela Phelps' The Beginner's Guide to Knitting on a Loom in the library today)
Many months ago, I acquired a set of knitting looms from the kind and generous Meg at Land of Meg (http://landofmeg.blogspot.com/) I have to admit that they then sat in the study for rather a while because I just wasn't sure what to do with them and so I kind of moved on to other things. For no reason at all I picked them up the other day and thought "I'm going to learn how to use these things!" So, as we all do when we want information these days, I went to You Tube (!!) and found a how-to video. And...I love it! It is so easy and you get such nice results so quickly. I think I may even soon be able to make socks, despite months of puzzling over circular needles and wondering how on earth I would ever perform such a feat (I nearly wrote feet!) with conventional knitting needles. If you would like to try knitting but haven't had much luck using needles, I urge you...get a loom!
