Playing with a knitting loom

I decided to ditch the home-made box frame and buy a knitting frame — which I discovered is called a knitting loom. It’s like a long, narrow racetrack with pegs sticking up.

The knitting loom is turned over to show knitted fabric emerging from the centreWhen you have tossed enough loops off the pegs, a knitted fabric begins to form on the underside of the loom.
