Wise “misskestrel” (California) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Darice 1171-58 Set of 4 Round Plastic Knitting Looms (Kitchen) As a novice knitter, I wanted to try something different–hence, the round knitting loom! My daughter got a single one by Knifty Knitter, and wouldn’t let me use hers. I wanted to get something similar, and found the whole set for less than what my friend paid for the single Knifty Knitter adult hat loom! Yay! So far, so good! No real noticeable difference in the brands, honestly. Both are solid and well-made. I can honestly recommend this product!! Easy to use, good directions, and it’s simple enough for an 8 year old! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 62 of 66 people found the following review helpful Perfect for those of us who can’t pick up traditional knitting, October 25, 2011 By Donna Smith (USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Darice 1171-58 Set of 4 Round Plastic Knitting Looms (Kitchen) I got this product today after ordering it on Sunday. Did I mention I LOVE Amazon Prime? I have always wanted to knit and have tried numerous times to teach myself via book, DVD, etc. and never could grasp it. After playing around with these looms for an hour, I had the concept down and was well on my way to loom knitting a hat. It would have taken me only 15-30 minutes to get it right except I had multiple distractions — kids. So far, in the past four hours, I have knitted two hats and am looking online for other projects to get started on. Please note that the instructions that came with the looms were of little benefit to me. It wasn’t until I searched the web that I found a technique I could understand and run with. I would recommend this product to anyone who, like me, could never learn knitting the “traditional” way. Also, I would recommend these looms for anyone who has arthritic problems. I have a difficult time performing a lot of tasks with my hands. They either become too stiff, cramp or ache horribly doing simple tasks. Given the size of the looms and the ease of pulling the yarn using the knitting tool that comes with the looms, I had very little problems. I did have to stop occasionally because of the above arthritic issues, however, I didn’t have to stop as often as I do when typing and certainly not as often as I have to rest my hands when handwriting. I was both shocked and thrilled at the same time. As of this writing, I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this product. I’ll revisit my review after using them for a month or two. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (4) Reply 71 of 77 people found the following review helpful EXCELLENT, September 22, 2011 By CARMEN123 – Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
