I love the yarn crafts...crochet, knitting. I am disabled with arthritis in my hand and I can't do it any longer. I bought this small loom just to give it a try and I a do it with ... (see full review)very little pain. My first project is a double knit scarf in my favorite NCAA team. So far so good. It's also very easy to pack up and take with me to appointments. I think I will buy a larger one to make an afghan.
I recently received this knitting board and finally had time to play with it. The DVD that came with it could be a little more complete. It starts off with the stockinette stitc ... (see full review)h, but doesn't show you how to cast on. It is also hard to really see what they are doing. There is an instruction booklet, but I do better with videos. I will see if YouTube has any.Also, I do traditional knitting and crocheting and I was hoping this would be faster for blankets. It seems like it may be for double knitting, but not sure about single knitting. Tried a small sample of that, and it was kind of difficult. Also wish the two smaller pieces could be put together like the large on. It would be easier to work on a scarf with the small boards instead of the really long ones.
Beautifully made wooden needles. Beautiful to look at and to use. The tips are easily changed, yarn glides easily over the cord and needles. Light weight and easy on your wrists an ... (see full review)d hands. The cord does not twist and curl. Quality set that I would recommend. The case could be better (so 4 stars). Keep your pins on a keychain so you don't lose them. The pins and caps are a great addition. Twist on caps can easily replace needle protectors. I own each beautiful set. Quality.
This is perfect for my needs! I'm a spinner this works great with everything I spin from very fine yerns to thick, chunky art yarns! I can ball up everything from small to jumbo sk ... (see full review)eins! Works great with commercial yarns too!!!
These crochet hooks are are a are FANTASTIC!! They don't twist in your hands and slide. Also, they don't make your hands sweaty. They are just so comfortable to hold. If you cr ... (see full review)ochet and haven't tried these hooks, you should give them a try. You'll be hooked-ha ha!
Have looked for this item for quite a while at most of your popular craft stores. Was so excited to see it on HSN. Bought it and using it now. Much easier to use than others I h ... (see full review)ave. Looking forward to see my first finished afghan.
I am right now well last few weeks working on my first afghan have had no problems, easy to get going, use blanket yarn working like a charm, if you are not sure, don't give up I w ... (see full review)atch tv and making this afghan at the same time. Thanks HSN and KB for a great product. Am very happy, and enjoying this loom.
Started using and am enjoying it. Very good quality, would have liked more instructions. May want to get a shorter loom to get quicker results. May want to check local craft sto ... (see full review)re for less expensive ones.
I ordered this some time back but only tried to use it recently. It's absolutely awful. The directions were no help in putting it together and having finally got it together, it ... (see full review)was absolutely no use. It went back in the box to be taken to the recycle center.
I was a little skeptical about purchasing an $80 knitting kit - but after having it for a couple of months - it's the bomb!!!!! Every size needle and cable imaginable - all in one ... (see full review) compact zippered case. I'm finding I reach for this before reaching for straight needles. Love this product!
I was happy to receive my order so I can repair my socks. It is not easy finding this product. The quality is very good. I wish they would be available in different sizes. Wish ... (see full review) shipping cost was less.
Well, the same thing happened to me.I read the description, but SAW the picture......3 skeins in a bag.; this would be a good buy. For one skein, the price is outrageous.....your o ... (see full review)ther reviewer was right, you can buy three skeins at the store for less than this one skein cost us. While the picture has changed to a one skein photo for this color, there are still 3-skein pictures on other colors. Sure, " caveat emptor " but you guys should be ashamed of yourselves.I love this yarn, but not it's deceptive advertising by this busines
I noticed that the darning needle was not in my kit, and after reading the instructions and watching YouTube videos about this gadget, I was unable to make a cord. Everything bunch ... (see full review)ed up. I think the yarn should be less fluffy so it's less likely to snag in the needles. It's too difficult for a beginner to use the provided yarn to learn how to produce e-cords. NEEDS BETTER QC TO ENSURE ALL ITEMS ARE IN THE KIT AND A BETTER QUALITY YARN. I DO NOT RECOMMEND!
This crochet book was clear and concise, easy to understand. Most appropriate for beginner/intermediate skill level. There is a great assortment of crochet hooks in all different ... (see full review)sizes. The kit includes many items that will be helpful as your skill level increases. This is a great guide at a great price point. I am really enjoying all of the new stitches I'm learning. I would highly recommend. The crochet hooks alone would cost more than the entire set, so it's a great value too. Enjoy!
This kit is ok but I found the same kit at Walmart and the price was half what I paid here at HSN. I could hardly believe it I checked and it was exactly the same. So you know I w ... (see full review)as disappointed
This tool is the fastest way to work on embroidery projects! I wish I had bought this earlier. It is simple to learn with the enclosed instructions. Thank you for having it in ... (see full review)stock. I'm working on gifts for Christmas and this will make them look professional and less tiresome!! Easy, fun and fast!!
I saw knitting master Lily Chin using these needles in one of her videos and wanted to try them. These are nice, lightweight needles. If you're used to using heavy metal needles ... (see full review), these will be a refreshing change for you, because they are light enough that you don't get as tired knitting with them. They are also easy to manipulate. The stitches don't slip off, yet they transfer smoothly to the other needle. It's also a benefit to have each size a different color too. Not only can you pick out both needles of a certain size easily, but you never have the problem of using needles of different sizes by accident (which I have done when all the needles in a set were the same color). The clear plastic case they come in is more for display purposes than for keeping them. My case arrived cracked, and I just discarded it and bought a nicer needle case. Given how inexpensive these needles are, I didn't expect a high-quality case with them anyway. I really like these needles and am gl
I may keep it on a shelf and use it as a knickknack. I can't believe anyone would make abusy little tool out of ceramic. Just removing it fromthe box, I almost dropped it.The direc ... (see full review)tions are very vague. I would return it butI got a deal on free shipping. Also, in the description, ceramic should have described it, because I saw one before made of wood somewhere else. I just assumed it was wood or plastic.
The written instructions are complemented by pictures and drawings which clearly illustrate the steps with the essential knitting stitiches along with starting and stopping (bindin ... (see full review)g off). Also a very nice section on how to fix mistakes. It includes a glossary of terms and a wonderful "how to" section on reading patterns.
The only thing I would have added would have been some of the circular clips to help track stitching patterns on the needles.
