Why Would You Ever Want to Pay For Knitting and Crochet Patterns or Lessons When You Can Get All That for Free?
Read this:
 

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting e-mail newsletter are:

• We cover hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a knitting message board digest with the latest knitting pictures, discussions and patterns.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• Discover the fastest way to knit (and to crochet) a sock... while keeping the perfect heel and making sure the sock fits (not many knitters know this).

• Find out how to figure out how much yarn you need for a pattern if the pattern doesn't specify it (works for any project, a real life-saver sometimes).

• Learn how to pick up a dropped stitch, even from several rows below. It happens to absolutely everyone at some point. But don't worry, there exists a really simple fix.

• And if you ever run out of yarn, find out how to join any yarn in the middle of any project.

• If you can't find the pattern that you need, or if you don't know which pattern would be most appropriate for a specific project, then you can ask our other users to help you figure it out. We even have a dedicated "Pattern Requests" section on our website that's all about finding new patterns.

• The same goes for any problems and questions about specific techniques. We have experienced users who are always helping those in need with just the right advice.

• And of course, as I said it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for knitters and crocheters, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more knitting-related material (pictures, patterns, tips) than contained in all knitting books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

You'll be able to talk and share ideas with more knitters than you could meet if you attended all the largest trade shows. And you'll be able to do all that without leaving your house!

Don't delay! Join the best knitting and crochet community on the Internet.

It's FREE, and you'll receive my first e-mail right away. Also, you'll get instant access to the most recent topics on our knitting forum: hundreds of great tips from other knitters.

I found a set of For Love & Money Looms at a yard sale. They were in a sealed bag so I didn't have a chance to look at the instructions before I bought them. I got three looms. A small one which looks like it would be coaster sized, a medium hexagon and then a large one for placemats. I am a little disappointed as the finished product made from them doesn't quite fit my decor. Has anyone made anything on these that looks more modern?

If I decided to sell them does anyone have any suggestions how I would go about selling them?

I looked up the name of these looms.
I used to have one that was hand made and had finishing nails for the pegs.
I made a lot of place mats with that loom years ago.
I don't have it any more.
There was a local man that made them and his wife was selling them at a hair salon.
She gave a demonstration on how to use them.

I really enjoy loom knitting. I find that it is "something" different to keep the mind challenged. Keep working with your "garage sale" looms and hopefully you will be able tomake something that you enjoy. I just bought the long looms but hae not yet had the time to experiment with them.

I think you can use them pretty much the same the Knifty Knitter looms are used. I have some old handmade wooden looms with nails for pegs. They were used similar to that. I made scarves, etc., with it.
If you decide to sell them you can advertise them on "Members - Buy/Sell/Trade Classified" on this site.

I just found a set of Knifty Knitter looms at the thrift store for $4. I already have some so I'm not sure if I will keep them.

These looms are different.

You work the yarn back and forth. Then, when you get to the last
peg, you change directions.
It makes a flat mat.
You use a shuttle with yarn to tie all the points that the yarn intersects. usually a complimentary color yarn.
When you lift it off the loom, you have a place mat or coaster.
The back of the mat will have the other color yarn going from
one intersection to the next. In a decreasing spiral.
Starting from the outer edge into the middle.

That looks pretty neat. I think my cousin use to have one like this. She made placemats for the universe! LOL I may even still have the set she made for me. In the right colors they look great!

Yes, these are weaving looms rather than knitting looms. I remember having a square metal loom with teeth/pins all around for potholders and placemats. :-)

Thank you. I found a John Alan "tool" and Goggling with a lot of guessing left me with an unmastered piece of plastic. Time to send for a book and shuttle. Thanks again. Moon Loomer
