It seems that a lot of us got Knifty Knitters recently (probably for Christmas, as they were on sale at Michaels) and since people are flooding the Knitting board with Knifty Knitter chat, maybe it should have its own board?  I think that would be awesome! Smiley

Ooooo.. I third this!  If we can have one for the Stitch N Bitch books then surely a forum for the Knifty Knitter is needed too!

Yeah, that's why I mentioned it too, because the group I found on Yahoo has an overwhelming number of messages...  And I need something to make besides the one hat I know how to do.  Undecided

Well, I wouldn't call it cheating, because as someone pointed out in another post, looming is a very old crafting technique...  But yes, they're the round circles with pegs, and there's also a flat "board"one.

Cheating?  Not really.  The frames are nice for those of who *don't* have full function in both hands.  I learned about them from a guy in physical therapy (me for my knee, him for an accident that cost him two fingers off his right hand)  He missed being able to knit of the bus and some relative or other of his had found one of the wooden variations and sent it to him.  My in-laws got me a set because of all the times I've tried to learn "normal" knitting and had my left hand do nasty pulsing spider cramps.  (they hurt and look repulsive)  There's a place here in Austin though where one of the teachers thinks she knows a way around the problem, but our times off don't match.

If there was a seperate board I'd read and maybe post, but in the regular forum I do already... so I don't know...

I think a Knifty Knitter/knitting loom board would be great!  Cool
