This article tells about the advantages (and disadvantages) of using a knitting loom or knitting board. Knitting on looms has exploded in popularity in the last few years. Have you tried loom or board knitting? Did you ever use a knitting spool? Share your experiences and thoughts!

I have several knitting looms including a sock loom. I enjoy using the round looms for hats. I have made tie-backs for my curtains with my knitting spool. I am very proficient with needles but have found that a basic hat is faster with the knitting looms.

Which looms are your favorites? Do you prefer a certain brand or style?

I prefer the ones with removeable pegs. I have a set of Hobby Lobby's brand of circular looms that have removeable pegs as well as a Knifty Knitter spool knitter that is double ended (one end has 5 pegs and the other has 8) and both ends have removeable pegs. I also have a Knifty Knitter flower loom. While I have a sock loom which is wood with metal pegs, I have found it is a lot more difficult for me to use. I have not used the long looms but have been hinting to my husband for a Christmas or birthday gift.

I didn't realize Knifty Knitters had any models with removable pegs, I will have to take another look at them.
Is the sock loom the one made by Authentic Kntting Board? I just pick done up and i am very much looking forward to trying it out.
Let us know after the holidays if you get a long loom...

I have knifty knitter looms in pretty much every size out there. I love making scarves with them. I use lots of fringy type yarn for a fuzzy scarf. Great for making quick gifts.

I even made a slouch hat on one of my looms.

Do you have any additional challenges using fuzzy yarn on a loom?

I have about 150 knitting looms of various gauges and sizes, including single rakes & double rakes, round, oval, and even one double round. Knitting looms are faster for some things and slower for others. They are a great way to use the types of yarns that are hard to knit or crochet with. A hat can be completed quite fast once you know how to knit on the loom.

Me, too! I hope to get to explore knitting looms further at some point. How did you get so many looms? Have you used all of them?
