Good loom set for the price
on January 1, 2013
This set differs from the Knifty Knitter and has some very positive points, there are some points that I am not super jazzed about also, but at it's price point im cool with it.
1. The pegs come out, as in they are removable. As in if you don't press em in really tight they might slip out while knitting. This is different then the knifty Knitter I have in that the pegs in that loom are not removable. In fact I bought this to replace it because a peg broke (got stepped on) on my KK loom. You can remove pegs etc which is a nice feature also the loom opens up into two pieces which is cool if you want to panel knit or move a large ball of working yarn from inside to outside.
2. The overall texture is smother and slipperier then the KK, I happen to like this, some people probably won't. the KK brand looms are more textured, the heads are bigger on KK pegs also. I knit loosely and quickly so the small heads speed up my process. For some this could be frustrating.
3. As an earlier reviewer stated you can't really select a gauge for this type of loom (can't on it's major competitors either) and everything could be done on the largest (orange) loom if you wanted. I find that a smaller loom is easier to work with and typically select the smallest loom possible for my project.
Again at the price this set is pretty fun.
