Zippy Loom

I was so happy to buy the Zippy Looms from KB in Joann's.  Darn, they cost 8 bucks a pop.  I bought five because I really want to make this cool shawl that everyone is making. I was so happy that I had all these coupons and I got them for half the price.  I have to wait until I get paid to buy the yarn. They are so cute and remind me of toys.  Three together is almost as big as my blue Knifty Knitter.

This blog has so much patterns, including the shawl.  I really want to try to make a jacket.

Still looming...

I can't believe I haven't posted in a while.  I have been teaching a class in Michaels and we have been making so many projects.  Also, I have been trying to get all the Loom Knitting books I can because some of them are going out of print.  So if you find one, buy it and keep it.  I was recently saddened that I could not find a purple Knifter Knitter loom with 48 pegs.  They have officially been cleaned out.  There are two on ebay and the current bids are over $100.  I also can't find In the Attic looms anymore, production stopped years ago and I just can't find them anywhere.  Anyway.  I think I am going to buy 2 looms from www.cindwoodcrafts.com.  I can find a 48 pegs loom there and an S loom with a wide gauge.
