Intro to a Loom
I have just learned to knit and am working on my first project. Since my daughters see me knitting there has been requests from them to knit too. Although we are a few years away from knitting together, a small loom has been the perfect alternative. This simple loom is a great size and having just 6 rows to work with has been just enough.
At first I thought the large needle that the loom came with would be too big and clumsy but it works very well. Now we both have our own projects to work on during these winter afternoons and my youngest daughter joins us by stringing beads and pasta too.
I am also wondering if a knitting tower would be another alternative for my oldest (who just turned 5) ? Does anyone know what age a knitting tower is suitable for? I have never used one.
