This would be a great idea! I normally knit on needles, but just picked up a loom last night to play around with. I was hoping that it would save time knitting the many Harry Potter scarves I owe my coworkers. I would love a place to put all the patterns and new ideas for it.

I post my stuff on the knitter board, because it *is* knitting...well, ok, it's technically weaving, i think, but anyway...there's no where else to post the stuff.  it's just hard when I have no idea what are the KK projects and what are the Knitting Needle'd projects, and I feel stupid asking "ooh, how did you do that?" when it's a needle'd project.

No, it is knitting. Google history of knitting and you'll see a fair number of knitting boards - they've been used since the 1700s.

It would be nice to have a subset board off knitting. After all, if SnB can have their own board, loom knitting is just as big of a subset to enjoy its own message board. You can tell by the threads invading the needle knitting board (he he - I try to interact onquite a few!)

So here's a second...err, tenth!...or whatever number we're on!

heh. If I were to try to knit with needles, it would take me a very long time. I have Carpal Tunnel in my o ne wrist, and Cubilateral Tunnel in my elbow, so trying to grip the needles would really start to hurt.  Fortunately, I can use the looms with my "good hand", though I do still want to learn needle knitting at some point just so I can say I do know how to do it!

Hi!

I just wanted to add that I have carpal tunnel as well, and I just learned to needle knit. What I will tell you is the looms are easier because of the difference in weight distribution - you rest the loom and the knit piece on your lap, the table, the dog, whatever, whereas you rest the needle and the weight of your piece (at least until its long enough to hang downward) on your wrists and arms.

The looms are good for most things, but I think I like the needles for smaller, tiny gauge stuff.

Victorians had a frame for knitting silk stockings (I saw a set of instructions for turned heel stocking for a Woolworths knitting "machine" with 220 "hooks"

I suspect I could build one for superfine yarns or thread but I'd have to have gotten a load of knitting silk before I'd be motivated enough.

assuming of course that I didn't try to just *weave* with it.  Set up to completion times for something that fine are about the same.
