Yes, I'm so glad to see loom knitting info available now. Am anxious to see what our crafty people have come up with. I have a set of looms but haven't played with them yet.

Thank you Admin for adding this to the site. I'm sure it will take off very soon :) Loomer's Unite ;) I've been looming alot more these days, as I'm going for therapy twice a week on my arm now.


Look forward to seeing the many posts ;)


What happened to your arm? Will it heal and you can go back to regular two-needle knitting? This loom knitting is exactly what people with disabilities need so they can participate in creating projects for themselves and friends and family. Being able to contribute is very important.

Jumping for joy!!!!!!! I have many different looms,like the KK ones and a few of the sock looms and the long looms from KK for afghans. Really love making tube socks on the looms.


Question about the tube socks on looms. Are they snug enough so they stay up? Pulling up your socks all day long is _not_ fun.

My first project was a scarf made from yarn I found at a dollar store. When my friends and co-workers saw it they all wanted one....I had a hard time getting them all done for christmas gifts! I love my looms!

Hi Needleme, Where do I sign up - subscribe?


Hi Moonloomer,
click on the blue 'home' link at the top of this page, go down to 'All Sections' - click on that and it gives you a list of every section. On the far right side of the Loom knitting section, click on subscribe. This will bring up Loom knitting every time you go into your newsletter. Otherwise you will only get emails for the 'Welcome" thread.
Hope this helps.

Hi Sylvia C, Thanks! That is the way I came in, but I had not looked right to see the Subscribe / Unsubscribe buttons I am now 172. Moon Loomer

The least expensive sock loom I have seen was $25, at Joann's I think, but there were none left last time I went to my local store so I ordered the adjustable one off Amazon. You can use the smallest circle loom for socks from what I understand but I would think they wouldn't be as good a fit as using the adjustable one from AKB. I'll keep my eye out for one and let you know if I find one.

The AKB (Authentic Knitting Board) has 2 rectangle sock looms one adult the other is adjustable. AKB has a yahoo group this is by invitation. Apply at AKB's web site. DA looms has a round set of sock looms of many sizes, rectangle looms (adjustable) all for socks, and some of the smallest of the hat looms can be uses for the large socks. Cindy Woods has looms for socks. I believe Kiss Looms has looms that can make socks. There are others but not mentioned due to my faulty memory. Each will have instructions on how best to use their products. Ilesa Philips has a hansom sock book, and other general books on loom knitting that have sock sections.
There is more out there BUT before you start get a fresh note book, journal, etc. Get some tabs, tab about 3 - 4 pages for each mfg/suppler (it really is easier to turn a page or 2 to compare equipment and patterns than to go to the net. Moon Loomer

PS At JoAnn's coupons apply to books and looms when they are not on sale, with a very workable special order system. Michael's has their own large gauge plastic looms and often stocks books. Hobby Lobby has their own large gauge looms, AKB looms, and books. More latter. M L

I'm going to order the Martha Stewart loom. My sister-in-law said she got these because you can move the pegs. Some one else told me if she knitted to tight the pegs would breakon the other kind. Maybe she just knitted tight.

Moon Loomer, That sounds a lot like my library , I have the kiss instructions and the video.I have a video that is " Round Loom Knitting" by American Knitter. I also have some AKB videos (4). I have never opened them as I still do not enjoy the AKB. I buy every new book tthat comes out.Kiss has their instructions on their site, also patterns.Isn't looming the greatest thing? What all have you made from the books?

Don't mean to be nosey, but I'm curious to know what it is about the AKB loom you do not enjoy. I like mine, but I have been looking at the KISS looms as well.

Too many dropped stitches. I do not like the nails. Maybe it is because I have used so many other looms. I bought the AkB a long time ago. Everytime I try to use it, I get frustrated and quit. The last time I tried using it, I wasted a whole day and evening trying to use it... I could have finished 3 or more projects if I had been using another loom. I think that I have every brand of loom that there is. I put a pegboard up in my hallway and have most of them hanging up. My KISSES are in their own container and so are the MS looms.
