Looming fun

At 16 I saw my first knitting loom in a store being demonstrated. Wow, they were expensive. I looked at it and thought yeah, I can do that. I went home and made me a knitting loom. I made it long enough to make an afghan. I didn't have to buy yarn due to me already knitting & crocheting.I knew once I figured out how to use this knitting loom I could make all kinds of kool things with it. I'm a fast learner lol. I loomed all kinds of thing for everyone. In May of 07 Hubby and I went to Wally World (wal mart) and I found a Knifty Knitter kit of 4 round looms for only 12.00. So I got back into doing looming after all those years. I have been having so much fun with these looms. I checked out loom knitting on Yahoo Groups and found there are a lot of great groups devoted to it. One thing led to another and here I am. I was self taught on my long loom but had never learned how to read a pattern or what the stiches were called. I'm learning all that now.
Now I have the knifty knitter long loom set and a second set of round ones.
I love working with yarn. All kinds of crafts but especially those involving yarn.
