Is anyone out there looming with knifty knitter looms? Id like some pattern books but I havent seen any. If you havent posted your books that you dont need anymore because you dont think there is a market for them, I am interested.

There's a couple of forums for the knitting looms. I think they have patterns available, too, on various websites. Try "knitting loom" in a Google search.

I also knit using looms.  I bought a book at Michaels that I use, and I've also found patterns online.  I can't remember where, but there is a site out there that tells how to convert a regular knitting pattern to a loom knitting pattern.

Here is a really good link:  http://isela.typepad.com/looming_crafts/

So far I've made hats (of course), booties, and mittens.  Soon, I'm going to try a sweater.

i have been using the looms for a couple of years for scarves and hats.  I found a couple of books at michaels and also at walmart.  Look up loom knitting online for some good patterns
