The Knifty Knitter is any parent's dream–an activity that will keep your child occupied for an extended period of time. I bought my first-grade daughter a set of knitters and a few skeins of colorful chunky yarn, and she has been quietly and enthusiastically knitting hats for herself and family members ever since. It's easy to use, and what parent or grandparent doesn't love a handmade gift?
For easy directions and patterns, pick up a copy of the Loom Knitting Primer by Isela Phelps. I found a copy at my local library.
Have you ever used a Knifty Knitter or other brand of knitting loom? Got any tips or favorite patterns to share?
