Haha which long thread?  There's several going, I think?

Anyway, What about having a child board that's "non needle knitting" then that can also cover the machines and things?

Well, my main concern is that I don't want to separate non-hand knit from other types of knitting.  It is all knitting, and it all belongs in the knitting threads.  Plus, like I said, I honestly do not think the volume of loom-knitted items, or even if you added ALL non-needle knitted items, would warrant a board of it's own.  We can't have a little board for every technique.  It would quickly become unwieldy.

I think it would be great to collect all loom knitting/knifty knitter projects onto one board. It's true that it is all knitting, but I think it'd be easier for people who mostly use looms to browse a board specifically for loom knitting.

Well, I'll vote for a child board for loom knitting, or one that was all non-needle knitting.  The way the search function works now, searching for "loom" also brings up any word that has "loom" in it (bloom? gloom?)

I don't think that it'll be seen as "segregating the knitters" as much as it will make it loom knitters to find what they're looking for.

I suppose I'm biased.  I know how to knit, but I'm bad at it.  I crochet, and I loom knit.  Of course, I don't know how many posts there really are about loom knitting, but that's mostly because I have a hard time finding them.

Just my 2 cents. ^_^

Not to be a thread zombie.....but I would like to see it too

Esp after an elitist "real" knitter picked the scarf i was making apart pointing out every slight defect and calling it " kiddish fake knitting"

the scarf took me twelve hours and is nearly 6 feet loong with an striped pattern I made up as i went involving two different yarns. I was so proud and now im afraid to give it to my sister for christmas

Definitely give the scarf to your sister! I'm willing to bet that there aren't as many "problems" with it as that knitter made it out to be, and that any "problems" there are won't be noticed by anyone who isn't crafty. (It sounds to me like you've encountered a mean, rude person; she'd have made you feel bad no matter what you'd done. It's not your problem, it's hers.)

Since my last post, I have learned how to knit with needles (and am quite decent at it now, I think!) And now, more than ever, I think loom knitting should be separate from needle knitting.  It's just not the same craft at all to me.

I think that the craft of loom knitting would really bloom if it had it's own place, which would be neat to see!

In the mean time, I've been tagging every post I see that includes it (uhg, but it's been a while since I did so, I can't remember if I used "loom knitting" or "knitting loom", but it's pretty big in the tag cloud now. If you haven't used tags before, there's a link on the right side of the screen for it.)

I checked tags for Knifty Knitter (BTW, I own several, and I thought it was Nifty Knitter, but then I don't appreciate anthing spelled incorrectly to be cutesy! Smiley ) and there are only 4 projects tagged with it. I suggest that anyone interested in this craft should tag projects you see or post yourselves. If there becomes a huge amount of them tagged, I would think that would point out that at some point down the road maybe it should get another board. Right now it looks like there are not very many of these projects. I agree with Lothruin's wish to not segregate the non-needles knitting projects out. It seems that would breed even more separation, when even a lot of people that use knitting looms are already calling it "cheating" or not real knitting. Tagging, if used properly, is an excellent way to search within a board.  Wink
