Of course, most people aren't even aware you cando things other than hats and scarves.

I have attempted a blanket twice but they just take too long.  I don't have the patience...

  I just got Isela Phelps book and want to try a few things in there.

Hiya everyone! At craft day last week my grandmother told me about loomknittinghelp.co m and how they had a tut on making your own looms from all different things.
Well this week I got everyone to leave craft day early! So I actually got some crafting done! And decided I wanted to make a tin can loom.
This is my version which is much uglier but I like it.


I used bobby pins instead of nails becasue I thought they would be easier to position and stay while I taped them down. Smiley
 I'm thinking of decoupaging scrapbook paper or tissue paper on top of the duct tape. Smiley 
Oh and My word of caution is no matter how good your can opener you may cut yourself. I barely cut my pinkie finger. (looks like a paper cut but hurts like crap even after antibiotic)

I think bobbypins would work better because the tops have a more rounded lip, too.  Nails have such a blunt lip, generally.

Bobbypins are a great idea!  I never wanted to make my own loom because I thought the nails would make it too hard to get yarn on and off.  What a creative solution.  I think I might make one now that has a lot smaller gauge than my knifty knitters.

I'm fairly sure this will be slightly smaller gauge than my Knifty knitters but I wanted even smaller and didn't have enough bobby pins. lol.
I have another can of mandarin oranges that I need to eat before I can make another one. Smiley I have yet to test it I'm hand carding some wool and have a lot to go through! lol.

Probably true! I never thought of that!

*Anything's* than better than nails, really. Most of the people I've seen make their own looms use cotter pins since they have a rounded head like a bobby pin.

I like the tin can idea, though! I'll have to try that - it'd make an awesome tubular sock loom!

I was looking at the "love and money" loom that I bought at this huge garage sale last weekend - it wouldn't be too hard to make one of those, either.

I want to know what a "love and money loom" looks like. All the pictures I've found online, haven't been that good.

Wow!!  What a great idea...I absolutely love this!  I gotta try this and check out that site, but you really have done a fantastic job on your loom!  Very inspiring, and Christmas is coming... Wink  Thanks for sharing!
