Loom knitting is a great hobby.
It is also a very inexpensive hobby to try out. Even better yet are the beautiful gifts that can be made on the knitting looms.
Needle knitting can be difficult for many to master. Loom knitting on the other hand is a whole different story. It is a very easy craft for beginners. With a knitting loom you are still capable of doing many of the same stitches you can do with needles such as the purl stitch as well as cables. I personally could never get the hang of needle knitting, but I do quite well with the knitting loom.
Another important note: loom knitting can be easier on arthritic hands than typical needle knitting.
One of the best things about loom knitting is just how cheap and easy it is to get started. The Knifty Knitters are a set of looms that can be had fairly cheap. However the instructions that come with the Knifty Knitter are not very good. This is a where the internet comes in very handy. There are plenty of loom knitting tutorial videos out there. These knitting loom tutorials will take you from the very simple all the way through some very complex loom knitting patterns.
