I tried to learn how to knit the "normal" way. Really, I did try. My mother taught me and I was trying to learn how to knit this pillow. It had dark blue and light blue stripes and like 80 stitches across. I started knitting it in 3rd grade and when I was 21, I decided to tear it out. Wasn't hard...it had only grown like 6 inches in length. Epic fail.
Then, when I was 22, I discovered loom knitting. I bought the long loom knit set and started knitting scarves and stuff. Then I got the round looms and did hats and branched out from there.
I know a lot of needle knitters turn their noses at us (and crocheters too). But, really, it's really hard to drop stitches and I don't have the problem with my stitches looking all uneven.
I have several different looms. I have my set of Knifty Knitters which are still my "go to" looms.
I also bought the Martha Stewart loom which is interesting because it's modular.
And I also have the Knitting Board adjustable sock loom.
And it's not just for scarves and hats either.
