I don't know if you're already tried this in your efforts to display your picture here, but in the menu up above (the one that looks like a tape-measure), click on "My Craftster", and then in the little menu that will then show up below, click on "My Picture Hosting". It should be fairly self-explanatory from there. Smiley

You have a real knack for faces. I'm, as ever, impressed.

Fantastic! I recognised the outfit as being from Monster Hunter before I even read the title of the thread. Nice work, that is seriously cute. Cheesy

Wow, these are pretty unique. Smiley Nice work!

Did you use a pattern, or figure them out from scratch?

Wow, just wow... The story of your mother's doll has left me nearly speechless.

Almost never before have I seen a project where it is so obvious, just from the pictures alone, that all of the love in your being (as you put it) was put into every stitch.

That is wonderful, truly truly wonderful.

This might, too, with any luck. Smiley

I don't know if Galt (a company who generally produces educational toys and activity sets for kids) has a US distributor or not, so I'm afraid I can't help there. I did just have a quick look on their website, but they don't seem to ship outside of the UK, and apparently don't list this product anymore.

I figured that I should provide a photograph of the looms together, to show the size difference that I referred to;

That's my blue Darice loom on the right (am I correct in assuming that the blue Darice one is equivalent to the blue Knifty Knitter?), complete with my current work-in-progress still attached to it*, and the one from the Galt set on the left. The little cord-making loom is in the shot, as well - that one is about the size of a finger.

It doesn't show too well in the picture, but the pegs on the purple loom are smaller, and as noted before, are a bit closer together than they are on the blue Darice loom. The purple loom itself is just as well-built as the Darice ones (which surprised me a bit at first, seeing as the kit it came from was so low-priced - I was expecting something a lot flimsier!), although it doesn't have the notches on the base. The finger-sized loom is fairly thin, so I'd be a bit worried about putting too much pressure on the pegs.

*(I'll post about this project whenever it is that I get it finished. I'm working on it in between trying to finish off a long-delayed sewing project. Tongue)

I obtained two new looms for my collection a couple of days ago. They came from this set. I wanted it for the looms because it was a cheap way of getting them - I have no plans to make the somewhat scary-looking bear. Tongue (I'm sure I can put the included yarn to good use, though.)

One of the included looms is a small six-peg one for making cords, but the larger one is a bit more interesting - it's a tiny little bit smaller than the smallest sized Darice loom (my loom set is the Darice kind - those notches in the base are very useful), and it has pegs that are quite a bit closer together.

I think these are going to prove very handy for me, since what I'm now doing is making a plushie using them, and my smallest Darice loom.

I've spent a bit of free time over the last few days reading this entire thread from start to finish (yep, all 101 pages), and I wanted to say thanks for all of the incredibly useful posts, links, and hints that are contained herein. (Also, hello! I usually sew and hang out over in the "Toys, Dolls, and Playthings" section. Tongue)

I can't figure out needle-knitting at all (I've tried, but it was disastrous!), and accordingly I was given a set of round looms for Christmas (along with Isela Phelps' book, "A Beginner's Guide to Knitting on a Loom", and a big bag containing a large amount of yarn), and I'm going to get started tomorrow. My first project is going to be a small carrying-bag for a Kindle which will be a gift, but after that I have several plans for making plushies with the looms, which I can see being a lot of fun. I will be sure to post those here at some point. Smiley

Thanks again for all of the information and advice in this thread!
