The are many of us here who like making things from scratch. We sew, knit and crochet, now we can use a butterfly loom. I'm pleased to introduce my new sponsor - The Butterfly Loom.
This loom is amazing. It reminds me a bit of the French knitting I did when I was a child and the little spools we made from old cotton reels. But I'll let Carolyn explain:
If the fear of knitting needles and learning intricate jargon such as "Knit one, purl two" kept you from hooking up with the latest knitting craze, The Butterfly Loom has the perfect, no-fail product - The Magic Board. If you love to knit and crochet and want to add something mystical and magical to your project, incorporate a motif you have created on the Board amongst your knitting and crochet - and wait for the compliments!!
This is a craft that would be enjoyed by people of all ages, including children. I think it would be a wonderful introduction to craft for boys or girls. But take it a bit further and you could be making rugs, Shawls, afghans, scarves or bags. There are many patterns and project photos on the site, and take a look at Carolyn's video on how to use the Butterfly Loom; it shows just how easy it is.
Carolyn also has a wonderful blog full of projects and photos of things she has made. It's well worth a visit.
