Why yes, I did! :)
I’d love to share with you a special deal through htp://www.markmanfarm.com/
Lynn Markman has 10 copies of Loom Knitting for Little People and is offering them as a gift with every $100 purchase! (shipping/tax not included and while supplies last)
How cool is that? :D
The looms are lovely with their handcrafted hardwood construction. I really like that even every peg is carved by hand with nice deep grooves for working stitches.
The fact that the pegs didn’t have any knobs at the top took just a bit to get used to, but as I worked with the loom, the motions became easier and easier to master. Think of it like needle knitting…they don’t have knobs on the ends of their needles either! ;)
The loom shown here is the Small Gauge ADR 8″ and the Small Gauge 16 peg Round Loom. I love that the ADR loom comes with the ability to change it from a large square, to a smaller, adjustable square (via the shorter loom sections and holes across the length of the loom), as well as a board suitable for double knitting (as is shown in the photo above).
The loom package came with lots of extras…a very strong loom pick for those heavy-duty projects, as well as tons of information about the craft of loom knitting and how to care for your loom….all in protective sleeve covers to keep the information crisp and at your fingertips for years to come. This information includes lots of how-to’s, tips and tricks as well a few patterns to begin loom knitting a project right away. There was a lot of care put into the order and a feeling of excitement for the craft shared in all those extra goodies. You can really tell Lynn loves what she does! :)
I even got to try out the Seven Layered Bean Soup from the Markman Farm Gourmet Cupboard and let me tell you…it was delicious! Everybody in my family thoroughly enjoyed it. :)

(ps…this is not a paid advertisement. I’m just giving my honest opinion of the experiences I have had receiving and using a Markman Farm loom package. The books being offered as a gift with purchase were part of Lynn’s book backer pledge awards through Kickstarter. :) )
