Martha Stewart Crafts Knit & Weave Loom Kit, By Lion Brand

For all you loomers out there, this is the latest and greatest tool that will make your looming more versitle, fun and drive you absolutely wild with the endless possibilities!

Lion Brand is partnering with Martha Stewart Crafts and created the Knit & Weave Loom Kit.  It is an erector set of connecting looming bars and joints where you will be able to make small rosette flowers all the way to ponchos and everything inbetween.  You will be able to work flat projects such as scarves and toys, or items in the round such has hats of varying sizes.  In addition to the loom knitting, you can also use this as a weaving tool; very similar to the pot-holder looms by making placemats or joining pieces together to make large afghans in record time.

Lion Brand created a couple of You-Tube introductory videos about this kit to explain how this works and the possibilites with this tool:

At this time it does not seem to be sold in stores but it can be purchased online from $35-$45.  Although the price may seem a bit high, when you think of the variety of sizes one can get from the assortment (including pegs!) it would cost just as much if not more to buy pieces individually as well as make storage for the larger looms.  With these attachments, they can be disconnected and stored in a compact manner when not in use.

Note: This is not a paid advertisement, just a great new tool that was found and wanted to share with other interested parties.
