So far, I’ve only experimented with a few weights of yarn that I have around the house. I’ve determined I’m going to have to buy a different weight than I’ve been using on my other looms. But I like it better than the S shaped loom I had bought in the past. I like that it’s open. I didn’t like the two layers being next to each other on the S shaped loom. It was harder than usual to rip out and put stitches back on the loom. I also like that this is wood. The quality is excellent. I’m sure once I find the right yarn, I’ll love making an afghan.
These looms are very well made. These are the only ones I use now. Will continue to buy and replace my plastic looms for these.
I had seen these looms in many YouTube videos and really wanted to try one since they seemed so much better built . So I looked and found the one I wanted and then was finally able to afford it . And wow it did not disappoint! Much lighter weight than I had anticipated which is great and was really glad to see the pegs are secured in and don’t come out I hate that on the other looms I have . I barely had this one out of the box and I was casting on for my blanket I’ve been wanting to make . Also the customer service is top notch I typed my own zip code in wrong and reached out and she was able to fix it before it shipped. This is the best loom I own now and I have several . I look forward to ordering other sizes in the future!!!
I have an X and the S loom and I love them both. However, my new large loom is what dreams are made of! It easy to use on your lap and it makes quick work of blankets. I love it!
I have made a few blankets with this loom. It is easy to use once you get the feel for it. No creases, easy to see an "off stitch" making it easier to catch and fix. Makes for universal projects as does very well with many different gauge yarns. Love quality and workmanship. Thank you
