Long Loom, or Round?

I’ve been working on my “orange project” (as seen below), and I’ve been using the Knifty Knitter long loom for the first time.  I’ve always stuck to the round looms because that was what was available at the craft store that I teach classes at in our town.  We recently got in the long looms, though, so I thought I’d try them out. 

So far I’m finding that the long looms are a bit clumsy to use unless I use the looming tool to thread the yarn through the pegs.  When I try to do it by hand, I can’t move around the pegs smoothly.  Of course, if I was using the fine gauge knitting method rather than the e’wrap, I’m sure that would fix the problem.

What do you think?  Do you have a preference on loom types?  Do you have any great hints or ideas we can all benefit from knowing?  I’d love to hear from you!  🙂
