First Martha Stewart Loom review…….

Ok so I said in my last post that I ordered the  Martha Stewart looms…

Now just remember this is my opinion only based on  my experience with

these looms……. first off they came yesterday  3 days early

major plus……

So I fiddled with them  just putting them together etc…..


the round loom and then  the itty bitty  4 corners loom…. pegs are plenty  pink, green, blue and gray……

the pink is the largest

the green the second largest

then the blue  last the gray ones….

Once assembled  nothing came apart… not the loom or the pegs…now some of the pegs

are harder to fit in the holes than others but rather harder than just slipping in cause then they

can come out easier…..

there is also a weaving tool so you can make your own weaved blocks to put together

into all kinds of  artful  home deco or clothes, blankets  scarfs etc…

I will try that next…

Drawbacks are  the hook tool which I didn’t even use since it seems really flimsy and also have not even the littlest bit of point to the end…I like my KK hook tools….

The plastic darning needles and crochet hook are a joke in my eyes but for people starting

out without any of those products  they would be ok to get started.

now for my project


A little hat made from just the 2 round pieces…or rather 2 half rounds put together into a whole round circle………..

Absolutely love the stitch.. it’s the basic ewrap which is always looser than the knit stitch or the pear….this is lovely looks like knitting on 2 needles…..

this would be a baby hat…..however there are  small long extensions that you can  make ovals

from that would be for KK users as large as the purple KK..which is what I use for adults….

Also due to the size pegs  being larger or smaller in gauge I think if you would use the larger pegs and ewrap you would get a looser fit  for toddlers lets say on this round alone…

All worth trying out….

The flower was made on the little 4 corner loom… if its not to pretty its because I haven’t made many flowers and  still need practice to sew them together,,,,,,I will try and update as I learn to do things on my Martha Stewart looms..

On another front our Abby is starting kindergarden tuesday…She is so excited…Allison has finally cut 2 teeth poor baby she has not been a happy camper this week but ice cubes and  frozen teethers have been her favorite toys this week,.

She is also walking behind a push along  toy up till now she only walked as long as she could hold on to furniture….

Ok  gotta go  work some more… going to make  spaetzle tonite with Gulasch gravy……

Hugs to all… A wonderful weekend
