Are you “loomers”? Last month I had to buy rubberbands for the Rainbow Loom so I could fix my curtain rod. The kids had been bugging me for over a year to get the Rainbow Loom or any one of the looms out on the market now. Now I had a real legit reason to buy it! LOL
I don't know why I was so resistant. Katie had been researching stuff to do with the looms online and figured out that you could use Clover's French Knitter to make bracelets with the loom bands. Well, I just so happened to have one of those since I took a class on it at CHA with Lindsay Obermeyer! Everyone got together to make looming projects around the coffee table. Xaver was working the French Knitter while Katie worked the loom we got at JoAnn stores.
Here are all the supplies I recommend for getting started:
- 1 loom or a french knitter
- 2 looms if you want to make bigger projects
- 5-6 packs of bands – get contrasting colors so you can see the patterns better
- A bin with a lid to put the supplies in

Does your family loom? Or do you or your kids loom? What's your favorite pattern or “stitch”? I'm still learning – let us know what we should be trying next!
