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.
Libora100550: I got this even before searching you tube. I like everything about it so
far, except, I struggled to get a few of my pegs into their holes, and
others are loosening as I weave. So, I have to continuously press on the
pegs to be sure they stay in their designated holes. Also, the hook tool is
not very strong it bends easily.
Wendyrose Krzak: how many pegs on that flat loom?
Wendyrose Krzak: thank you for taking the time to review this, I will buy this,
muyprivado: girl where did you buy it so inexpensive? i just bought mine in amazon for
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?
Jana Hagen: Now I totally want one. I knit and can crochet a basic granny square and
had a 4 inch loom as a kid (wonder where that thing went?). I now have
fibrmyalgia and it gets really bad in my hands. This looks like I would be
able to use it when knitting needles are just a bit too uncomfortable and I
just want to make something basic.
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?
VCArtisanOriginals: Thanks for this! I was on the fence but after watching several reviews I
think I'll go ahead and get one. I don't really like the nifty knitter
looms due to the large pegs and spaces so I'm anxious to try the smaller
pegs for baby items. :)
Daniella Marquez: how many pegs did you use to make the new born hat?
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
theunlikelyprepper: Let me know how it's going, I LOVE mine!
theunlikelyprepper: Joanns, got myself a couple of 60% off coupons (mind you I waited 4 months
to a. not be on sale and b. have a 60% off coupon, haha) I live by my
40%-60% off coupons from Joanns, I almost never buy anything without them.
:) Stocked up and bought 2 since I knew that I'd have more options and pegs
that way! Hope I helped and that you have Joanns near you!
theunlikelyprepper: I love the MS hooks handle, HATE the metal piece. I bent it a few times and
gave up. Back to using my good ol' KK purple hook. HAHA
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
theunlikelyprepper: I actually have very little issue with the pegs. I occasionally get a
wiggle but not much else. I have the full Knifty Knitter round set and the
smaller pink straight loom. I prefer the Martha Loom now because the pegs
hold the yarn on better. Though, you might want to loosen up a little, as
I'm not super tight with my yarn. :)
Corey Holder: Hey, I also use Knifty Knitter looms and prefer them over needle and
crochet, I was put off with the Martha Stewart loom at first because of all
of the pieces and I'm not the best at keeping up with things! But I'm
finally giving in after seeing a few videos of what it can make and like
you mentioned it has the ability to make larger projects.. My question is,
the pegs not being glued in do they fall out easily/often? I am a tight
knitter not necessarily on purpose, it just tends to happen lol.
KieliAnne: I love the colour of the scarf/project you are working on. Is that a single
multi-coloured yarn or have you combine more than one type/colour of yarn?
Crystalizeh2o: OH...yes i only used one...and I did the e-wrap
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! :)
theunlikelyprepper: Hey! That scarf was done with Red Heart With Love (MUCH softer than regular
Red Heart!) in Autumn and Chocolate. I do a lot of projects with double
yarn. Makes for warmer hats, scarves, etc. Autumn is verigated with green,
orange, red, brown and Chocolate matches the brown perfectly so its fairly
Debbie FoodPrepping: That is so awesome!! I absolutely love the scarf! Thanks for sharing this
Meagan Figueroa: I have this set and I love it, was able to make a hat with a flower on it
very easily. My only problem was the hook after I started my 3rd project
the hook broke. So I had to buy a new sturdier hook, but other than that
this set is great, very versatile.
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.
Heidi Johnson: I just got mine today can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing these they
help so much!!
