My first project on a loom (or any knitting for that matter) was a blanket for my son. I had received a few needle knitted blankets for my baby shower and after my son was born I decided that I wanted to make him one too. At the time I thought I would learn to needle knit, but I met this wonderful retired school teacher at Hobby Lobby who not only explained to me that a skein was a ball of yarn , she showed me the looms and told me how easy it was. I'm forever grateful to her for her kind instruction. Well I have been looming ever since - almost 2 years!
My first blanket left a little to be desired, and someday soon i'll make a new blanket for my little bird, but it was the start of something that has become an integral part of my life.
My hope for you is that whether you are brand new to looming or an old hat and trendsetter that you'll love this hobby and way of life for a very long time.
