I received this loom from my lovely daughter for Christmas. She asked me a couple of times over the holiday if I'd tried it out, and I felt bad/ungrateful every time I answered 'no', because it was what I'd actually really wanted!
I picked up my knitting today - the Shogun hat - and got that uncomfortable strained feeling in my left hand.:-(
This is where the loom desire for the originated!
So, I'm trying it out, and, so far, I do think it's good!
