Using a knitting loom

The round knitting looms are starting to come back into vogue. Partly because they remind us of our childhood knitting pin dolls or cotton reels, partly because they are easier for people with problems with their hands who still want to knit, partly because they are different and partly because they are easy to pack and carry around. No chance of losing needles or having them confiscated on a plane. I was looking at how well an old man could knit with one of these looms. He was making beanies for a charity project and had such a sense of purpose and worth even though his mobility was limited. They are safe for children to use too. The looms are an option in your yarn crafts toolbox and worth learning. This video is a good way to get up and running.
