Don't forget, everyone, that we can still tag our loom knitted items!  The main tag seems to be "knitting loom"

I am a loom fan for sure!!  Thanks for the reminder about the tags!  I search with tags all the time and I am sure I miss out on some great stuff because people forgot them!  I will add them as I come across cool stuff that are tagless! Cheesy

Also, a reminder about the (now very old) completed projects thread for loom knitting:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=141862.0

Since nothing's been added to it in a couple years, a reminder is due.  Grin

I actually use my knifty knitter while sitting in my car at stoplights and waiting for freight trains to clear the railroad crossing. knitting while driving is probably a very bad idea, however,  Cheesy so i just keep it on my lap and pick it up to work on a row or two while i wait.

This crafter is out of service most of the rest of 2015 due to a wild schedule, swapping once in a while when I can't fight the feeling anymore ("I've forgotten what I started fighting fooooor...").

Personal swaps: I have lots of home-grown rosemary and white sage available.

So, I just picked up my long loom for pretty much the first time today.  And I went to JoAnn's to get some yarn, and found "Knitting with Knifty Knitter III" booklet there.  And picked it up.  And I've been trying to make a blanket for the past couple of months, crocheting it, but not having much luck.  So I decided to give the "Off to School Afghan" a try.  My question is, does anyone have the booklet, and if so, can anyone tell me if I'm really supposed to go ALL the way around all 62 pegs on the long blue loom, basically making it a tube?  I'm a little confused on it.  And I've tried looking for pictures on google and looking at the provo craft website, but I'm not having any luck.  Anyone have any pictures of it lying flat?  Because the picture in the booklet has someone holding it all cuddly like, and you don't get a good view of it.  Anyone?

I don't have that book (handy) so I couldn't say for sure... Some ideas, though:

Are you e-wraping the pegs? (Or knit or purl?) If that's the case, it's possible you are supposed to wrap every single peg, but for the second row of loops you turn around and wrap the other way instead of continuing in the same direction and making a tube.

If it's that zig-zag across the board stitch (whose name escapes me at the moment) then you do use all of the pegs, but it makes a double-sided fabric but not a tube... This doesn't seem likely to me, though, unless it's a somewhat narrow blanket.

Anyone else have ideas?

I don't have mine handy either but I'm inclined to think it's the first method fantasticmio mentioned.

Yeah, I'm e-wrapping.  I'll give it a try and see what happens!

Thanks! Cheesy

i got a set a long time ago.  I never tried it though, so I swapped it to someone on craftster.  Then this year I was given another one for a gift.  But, Ive never even opened it.  It just dosent appeal to me.  When I knit I want to use my knitting needles.  So these knifty knitter thingies just seem pointless to me.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I think these are great for people (like me) that can never quite figure out how to use conventional knitting needles! Wink  I may or may not have thrown a needle or two in a fit of pique.

The looms can also be good if you have arthritis or some other condition that would make knitting with needles difficult.  But really, I think loom knitting is just a different, yet very similar, craft.
