This book was made for crafters curious about those strange circles hanging around the stores. It proves knitting looms can go beyond hats and scarves.
Isela breaks down all the techniques for looming, from the simple twisted knit to purling, increasing/decreasing and cables. Every page packs a lot of punch with clear photographs illustrating each step. The "how-to" takes up more than half of booklet.
From there, six projects take the loom-knitter through all they have learned. For the knitter who thought they've never do lace, there's the elegant "Wrapped in Lace" shawl. As for myself, I'm about to cast on the square dance blanket. My squares rarely turn out to be ... well, square. So I'm looking forward to using the increasing/decreasing technique to get that perfect shape.
Once I'm finished playing, I'll be happy to pass it along to another loom-knitter who wants to go beyond the basics. Thank you to author Isela for providing me with a copy for the purpose of a review. She also has another loomy book coming out in the fall — Stylish Accessories Knitted on/Hand Loom.
