For my birthday my Mom bought me looms from Knifty Knitter, which is created by Provo Craft. I have never knitted in my life, and these looms made it so simple. So far I have made 2 scarfs and a baby blanket.
I am still needing to learn a lot more so I have been going to You Tube and just bought a book "Loom Knitting Primer" by Isela Phelps which has a lot of basic information. In the book she lists essential tools which I bought just about everything from Crochet hooks, stitch holders, to tapestry needles, counters and knitting gauges.
I am really having fun with knitting, that I have been neglecting my blog and paper crafts.
