c&m: I love my loom but I want to up grade I was thinking about get that cine I think I mite. If u want to see what I make u can go to my page.
Micki Brisbin: I love the versatility of this loom kit. I do not like the way the pegs go in. I find it hard to put the pegs in. They are not even when I put them in. I find that I have to force them in. This is the only thing I don't like about the loom kit.
Ellen Hofer: Not even as easy as it looks. The pegs kept popping out. I purchased it at JoAnn's although they are also at Michael's. I got it for around $17 with a 40% off coupon. These things were so frustrating I went back and bought the Knifty Knitter looms that come in many sizes and shapes and because the pegs are permanently attached it was much easier to use. Hint: Don't pull the yards to tight or they are hard to pick up and over the pegs. There are also several loom weaving books at Michael's and a whole lot of projects and easy instructions and pictures for each. Don't waste your money on this cheap Martha Stewart item.
Virginia Blackwell: Well I'm going to try this and I hope that I can learn to use it every day to make a lot of things too.so I'm going to Walmart on Friday wish me luck. Virginia
Kimberley Dunphy: I bought this kit yesterday before reading the reviews... I don't like the way the pegs keep popping out but I see the comment previously about putting tissue paper or yarn into the hole and it fixes it. I will have to try that, otherwise I will be returning it.
MsEnajaseret: I bought this loom kit today. You must have gotten lucky with the pegs. It is very slow going and the pegs are always popping out. I don't think people should have to modify the kit to keep the pegs in. I think I will return it.
gabriell thomas: I bought one of these last week I've already made a hat & scarf , but my pegs won't stay in & my hook broke
Shann Hall-LochmannVanBennekom: My daughter bought this for me a year ago on Black Friday for under $10. I loved it at first. I made a baby blanket and several practice things. Then in May, I decided to make an Afghan. With just a few rows done the pieces started breaking. I super glued it back together and it worked for a short while before breaking again. Then the pegs kept falling out. This year she gave me the round looms and I've been able to do things much faster. Though I wouldn't pay over $30 for it, it was well worth the ten dollars.
mosslynn: I bought the Martha Stewart Knitting and Weaving Kit and returned it 2 days later..about 20 of my pegs were broken at the bottom and when I was working on a hat a lot of the pegs popped out. I ended up getting the All-In-One loom and I love it.
Wendyrose Krzak: how many pegs on that flat loom?
Wendyrose Krzak: thank you for taking the time to review this, I will buy this,
Karen Case: Thank you for the great review! You mentioned that there was an odor. Is that just with the hook or do all the pieces have that smell?
Ann Stoeckl: I have Fibro as well and find the looms to be much easier. I'm currently making hats for the homeless in my community as well as a project or two for myself. Did you ever get the Martha Stewart set? I love it. I think the only way I'd switch is for the wooden knitting looms just because they look and feel better to me.
theunlikelyprepper: I believe that I made all my preemie hats on the blue (old)/green (new) (24 pegs) Knfity Knitter (KK changed their colors so I'm giving you both) and the newborns were done on the red (old)/light blue (new) (30 peg) one. I don't know that you can do a newborn hat of the MS round loom, I believe the round loom done with every other peg still makes a toddler hat. But you could try playing with the size of a square loom and just knit in the round. It does work, I've done it for custom size hats
Daniella Marquez: how many pegs did you use to make the new born hat?
theunlikelyprepper: Yeah, that's probably why. Even the stockinette comes out a little flimsy when it's 1 strand. I'd take it apart and double it and see how it comes out. If you only have one ball of yarn, take from either end, that's how I save money ;) Let me know if you have any other issues! :)
Crystalizeh2o: OH...yes i only used one...and I did the e-wrap
theunlikelyprepper: Did you do 2 strands of yarn or one? When I do ever other peg I do 2 strands to thicken it. And what stitch did you use? stockinette? e wrap?
Crystalizeh2o: hey...Im having a hard time making the baby hat that you did. I put the pegs on the circular piece, every other hole just like you have it, but the hat seems to be coming out with big gaps in between each peg. What am I doing wrong?
