I bought one of these looms, the one for chunky scarves, but haven't gotten around to playing with it yet. Maybe in the fall. I'm glad you like it.

I knit and crochet, but this is the easiest and fastest way to make scarves and hats.  It is quite easy and now I have 4 loom sizes and the long narrow one to make shawls.  It is so easy you can watch TV and use it.  There are some good tutorials online. 

You will like it a lot

I love this product!  Even young kids can use it.  I also crochet, but have used the loom to make several scarves and hats.  For my son's recycling fair I had his class use it with plarn and it worked great.  He is in a gifted class which includes 2nd and 3rd graders.  So some of these kids were 7 years old.  We made a plastic bag recycling bag (that doesn't make sense).  It was a long knitted tube where the used bags can go in the top and you pull them out the bottom when you are ready to use them.

We are planning on using the narrow one to have the kids in my son's elementary school make wheel chair and walker bags as a school charity project.  Using the loom we can get even the very young kids involved.   What fun!

I love those!  I made a cover for my swiffer so I didn't have to buy those expensive and harmful cloth wipe refills for it and didn't have to give up the convenience.  If you do a search on the internet for knitted swiffer cover free patterns you can find a few of them.  You basically just go back and forth on the smallest loom (I think) until it is long enough to go from the top of the swiffer by the handle, around the long side of the bottom, and back up to the handle then sew the edges together after you get it off your loom.

its great all i have is the four round looms - go to provocraft and they also have patterns and ideas.  Also JoAnns web site has some too.  I make children's purses and adult and baby hats as well as Santa Claus hats.

Is it possible to knit something like a shawl using the loom?

I love the Knifty Knitters!! There are several groups on Yahoo. I haven't made anything other than scarves, dish cloths, & hats on mine yet, but patterns and books of patterns are available for larger items.
