I would have to say that my biggest problem with it is the spelling of the name! Grin It drives me nuts when companies spell things wrong to be "cutesy."  ugh! It's a lot cuter to spell it correctly!

I love to knit but when I need to make up hats in a hurry, let's say for charity, the loom comes in pretty handy!  I can make a hat so quickly and it can be done easily while watching mindless tv!

I have also used it to get the base of a hat that I can then embellish to my heart's content!  I need to get some books for more ideas and also, I think there are quite a few patterns available online!

I have used the round one's. Made lots of hats. Want to make gloves. So guess you use the smaller one. Has anyone used the long kniffty knitters? I have one short one. Want to make a afghan. I corchet, and make afghan's that way. But now want to make something diffrent. Love the looms they are faster, and i dont know how too knitt. Tried but have trouble with the two needles. So gave up. A firend gave me the round looms. Might ask one of you how too do the gloves, finger less ones son inlaw wants a pair. Thanks everyone for letting me go bl bl bl.

I love the long ones.  Cause you can do lots of cool stuff on 'em.  I just made a blanket this summer.  I'm gonna make one for my sister for Christmas.  I used the rib knit stitch.  It turned out really cool.  There's those little guide books you can buy at Wal-Mart or fabric and craft stores for like, a buck each.  That's where I learned to make the blanket.

I think in the new year I'm going to try out a loom stitch that I came across a while ago. If I recall correctly, you "wrap, lift loop over" three times in a row on a single peg before moving on to the next and repeating the process.

Have any of you tried that one? (Was it this thread where I ran across it and have just since forgotten??)

I know that there was a bunch of loom discussion in the stash busting craftalong as well as the defunct frugal craftalong... Cheesy

I love to use them to make thick scarves in double stockinette. This is a different type of loom, but she shows how to do it here. On the KK, I use bulky yarn or two strands of worsted. I find this easier than Provocraft's instructions, and I like the results better.
