A loom story

Today's Knifty Knitter class was a great group! We made easter bunnies and talked about how the pattern could be adapted for any number of other projects...including a skunk! What a terrific idea....I may have to try one. ;)

Here's a little loom history for you....
One of the looming ladies had experience with a knitting board as a child. She brought this board with her to class

and told us how someone had made the looms for the entire class so that they could knit scarves for armed forces during World War II.

Yep, knitting looms have a history!
