I have it, but haven't spent as much time with it as I would like.

I like the concept of it, but the execution could have been better. Some of the pegs don't fit very well in the holes, and some of the loom pieces need quite a bit of cajolling to get them to fit together.

I tried weaving with it, and I liked the finished product, but I had trouble with the weaving tool as it didn't fit between the pegs very well.

Over all, though, I'm glad I got it. I've got sufficient experience with knitting looms that I feel confident I can work around any design flaws. And I'm going to get my dad to take a look at the too-big pieces to see if he can fix them. :-)

Thanks for the information i`m glad to hear from some one who has experience using them Grin
I bought them more for the weaving than the knitting as a budget introduction into a new craft i`m looking forwards to experimenting with them with different materials  Wink

I just started using this loom for weaving and I like it.  I weave with a yarn needle unless I am using thick yarn or material strips. For the price I am happy with the different ways the pieces can fit together to make various looms.  Centrist and YouTube have helpful information on how to get more out of these looms.
