      Hi Iva;
      Welcome to this group i enjoy it, Im a relatively new the  loomer, i have been doing this for about a year and have collected several
      looms but the knify knitter looms (round and long) are a good place to start, i got mine from Micheal's. But i hear Joann's sells the sets he net to buy them
      also. If your looking for more and there are some really good sites on the net to buy them, i got mine from  looms www.cindwoodcrafts.com 
      There is one called DA looms stay away from them the original owners sold and people that bought it have not sent out orders that have come in since the sale...another one is Markman looms and i have never dealt with them but i know some who have, but there web site says they are looking to sell due to health reason, so i don't know what to tell you there about there selling policy now, but there communication was very good and you can contact them.
      i hope i don't seem a bit long winded but i love looming and i learn new things everyday. And love to share if you have any questions am i can help let me know, YouTube is awesome if you type in Loom Knitting in the browser you will find a wealth of info

      Happy Looming

      Hi, to all. I am a newbie both to the group and to loom knitting. I have done plastic canvas for years, but, I think, I was getting pretty burned out on it.  My interest in looming stems from a lady I met on another list and recently befriended on facebook. I am interested in learning how to do hat of all sizes, long mufflers, and maybe even afghans. I am interested mostly in doing it for charity, as I have no family nearby that can use any of the items I want to make. Currently, I only have one loom, which makes a child size cap, but will be getting more in the future, just have to work it into the budget.  I am sure I will have a lot of questions along the way, but I would like to say thank you for inviting me into this wonderful group.

      Hi my name is Sandy and I am new to this group.  I have been using looms since 1988 but haven't done a whole lot of different things.  I have made hats, scarves and now I am making slipper socks.  I would love to learn how to make other things.  I noticed a pattern for a dog coat and tried to figure it out but I can't seem to.
      I live in California with my husband of 50 years.  We have 4 children plus spouses, 14 grandchildren plus their spouses and  11 great grandchildren with one more on the way due in March.  We live in the snowy mountains of southern California. 
      I really want to learn new things.  I have the round knifty knitter loom set, 2 CinDWood looms, small and another loom that I got in 1988 called Knit-A-Round Speed Knitter.  I also have one long (purple) Knifty Knitter loom but have no idea how to use it.  I have another loom that looks like a comb and I haven't figured that out either.
      Thank you for letting me join.
