I have an unfinished touque. That's it. Been too busy elsewhere. I did order 16 loom packages for work through cricutmachine.com but the shipping was $108.00! Blushing And....cricutmachine is Provo Craft. Ridiculous shipping!

So what have you got on your looms?

My looms have been neglected lately. I have been using regular knitting needles.

But I do enjoy my looms. I need to learn to use them more.

I have a round set and an oblong set. It seems like in my oblong set, the grooves for the little pick thing are not very deep and hard to use. I have thought about taking my dremel and engraving them bit to make deeper grooves.

Maggie's Crochet website has a video on how to make those ruffled scarves in about 30 minutes with a crochet hook. So much easier that trying to knit the ruffles!

So glad you enjoyed the video! I happened upon a lady at Wal-mart one day who was buying the yarn and I told her I didn't like how long it took to knit the ruffled scarf. She is the one who told me about Maggie's crochet video. Sure wish I could thank her! So I am paying it forward!

Huh OK, I watched the video on the loom and the crochet video....
Scared IF the loop breaks on the crochet your ruffled scarf is ruined
ThumpUp but on the loom if a loop breaks you still will have a ruffle...right?
Love I think I'll just make them on the loom...better to be safe than sorry, especially since they are going to be gifts.

I still prefer making the scarf on the loom, but pressed for the time, the crochet scarf is faster, just not quite as pretty but still very pretty. Smile

Baby Blanket on a long KK
Afghan on the CinDWood Loom
Ruffle Scarf on a long KK
Scarf on a round KK

I've already finished several ruffle scarves in the last two weeks. Sometimes just to sit and knit in this heat is the best.

I have nothing on mine.......yet. I have just purchased my very first KK (the assorted loom series) I was very excited to see on the description online and on the packaging that directions/videos and free patterns are available at www.provocraft.com ...... then it redirects to circuit and no amount of searching gives me anything on KK or provo craft. I have never used looms before and the last knitting I did was as a child and can't even remember doing it. Can anyone point me to the KK patterns, videos, how tos ??

thanks for any help/pointers
