My New Adjustable Gauge Loom!!


This intimidating new loom is the loom of all looms!! It is the first and only knitting loom so far that allows you to not only adjust the size of your loom... but to adjust the gauge!!
Yep!! You're right!! That means that you only need the one loom to handle all your loom knitting projects... big or small!!
Oh... this loom also doubles as a knitting board also which means that you can do those double knit projects too!!
It truly is a revolutionary adjustable gauge loom.
Where'd I get it you ask???
I got it from Cliff, the inventor www.kiss-looms.com so if you have any questions for Cliff... email him at: cliff@kiss-looms.com
You're curious as to how to use it...aren't you?! Well let's see... Cliff recruited Graciela Worth of Gracie Land Crafts to test his prototype model back in May 2007.
Graciela created a DVD to help visual learners how to use the KISS Loom and that can be found here: KISS LOOMS: The Basics
By August 2007 they had a new KISS Loom group where "Kiss users" could go to learn more about their looms and how to use them.
Tomorrow (Sunday July 27th, 2008) Graciela is teaching a 3 week KISS Loom class using a pattern called: Simple Sweater that she designed. It will be the first time I even laid yarn upon my new KISS Loom so this ought to be quite interesting ;-o
Oh yes... you're wondering why it is called a KISS loom. K.I.S.S. stands for Keep It Simple Stupid (as thee ol' saying goes). (Not to insinuate loomers are stupid but from what I understand... this whole adjustable gauge hit Cliff like a brick as if a lightbulb in his head turned on and he saw it all too clearly... an adjustable gauge loom!! He said it was just too simple of an idea and couldn't believe nobody had thought of that before.
So... whah-la... he invented one!! Thanks Cliff!!
