The Main section is for knitting and crochet. You may get better responses if you post in the Loom Knitting section.

I did. No answer...thought I would cast the knit out farther. Looming is knitting!

I have the round looms too. I have only made hats on them. If i were going to get serious about loom knitting I would want the wooden straight loom that has small metal pegs. The finished item would have smaller stitches. Some of the loomers have posted some fantastic things they have made. I may eventually do loom knitting, if the arthritis in my fingers gets too bad.

i as well in both wrists and the left thumb....but still hurts...i think the wooden/metal pegs might be a bit much for me....i was thinking plastic.....read an opinion that Boye is hard to work with, Cindwood is expensive, wondering about Knitting Board looms and other brands i havent heard about.

My SIL has one and loves it. She is currently making a baby afghan with it. Hers is stitch Studio by Nicole, the house brand from A.C. Moore. It is plastic in a set of 3 or 4. You can make items up to 48” wide on it. She got it 50% off with their coupon. Hope you find one you love.

I have 2 of the long knitting board wooden looms. The pegs are nylon I believe and they are the smaller gauge looms. I have the All-In-One (18") and the 28" boards. I got them both at Joann's I'm pretty sure when I had coupons and only ended up paying no more than half price for them. You can check them out at http://www.knittingboard.com/ for more information on them. They are adjustable.

I did check out KB site and mentally shopped until I got the estimate for shipping!!!....close to $30. 😮. How are they to work with? Pros/cons?

I have used boye looms. They just take a little getting used to the little notch. I also have the kB knitting board ... love that as well. Have you checked eBay?

I have the Boye looms and think they are fine for what I make, but if I was going to be looming more or wanted projects with a smaller gauge, I would get the wooden ones with the smaller pegs or even an adjustable one. I have a friend who loves her wooden adjustable. She says the plastic ones come apart when working on them, but the wooden ones are pretty secure.

Exactly what I want to know. Thanks Susan, sounds like Knitting Board brand. Sure wish there is supplier in Canada paying for shipping that is more than the item kinda hurts

Not sure Amazon ships to your location, but I just looked on their site, and they carry some Knitting Board brand looms: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=knitting+board+looms&hvadid=78408975145205&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&tag=mh0b-20&ref=pd_sl_8tory09jb3_e

Hope this is some help. . .
