    I broke my foot and was laid up for months. I discovered your website and had my family buy me a set of looms and some yarn. My family and I own a bakery and I have shown your website to numerous customers that like all my different hats. Your instructions are clear and easy to follow. I want to Thank You for producing these videos and introducing my old arthritic hands to a craft that I can enjoy without pain.
    Really, Thanks!

      SUPER super cool – thank YOU Viki. So happy this great craft has been good for you and that I could help in some way.

    I needed a new hobby and bought looms. However, I found you!
    With your beginning tutorial I have been able to give a basic hat to family and friends.
    I am having a weird thing that happens to all of them and I want to figure out what I am doing wrong before Imfeel Imcan give to strangers.

    Thank you for your generosity.

    I started loom knitting this year and your videos are so clear. Thanks to you all of my friends and family who live anywhere cold are getting hats and scarves! Even my husband tells his friends how I learned from you tube 😊

    I just found the time to watch your “Thank You” video. You are a very genuine lady. I felt your sincerity and honesty. Thank YOU and God bless.

    Thank you for your clear, and easy to follow videos. I’m very “visual “ so your videos are perfect for me. I found you last December (‘16) and decided to make scarves for our Meals on Wheels program we have in town. Little did I realize that our client list had grown to over 100! Last Wednesday I finished number 110. Just in time! Now it’s time to make a something for me. Keep those videos coming, we love them.

    • Denise Canela November 24, 2017 at 7:42 pm Reply

      110 ! WOW Wow wow !!! You have more then earned your own project. I hope you’ll like today’s project – a braided headband.

    Thank you for your Thank You, Denise! I chose your site from the many sites available because you are a patient, humble, giving person – and because of your unhurried, soothing voice!

    I started loom knitting in January 2017, after watching a local hospital auxiliary volunteer knitting hats for preemies. She sent me off to a local craft store to buy my first kit. I have made 75 hats so far this year! The first 12 were for family members who live in Minnesota – they need warm hats up there. I made 60 hats for ladies at a women’s Shelter here locally. The hats will be distributed this Sunday at a dinner for the ladies, hosted by my church. One hat is being mailed to my 10 year old grandson in Alabama to wear at an outdoor choir event. He wanted a hat to match his red, white, and green sweater. The other hats are Christmas gifts to friends. Even here in Texas, the temperatures can get cold!

    So, thank you, Denise, for being the wonderful teacher and instructor that you are! I hope to progress from the e-wrap, draw-string hats I’ve made this year, to a more advanced stitch. And I’m now teaching the basic hat stitch to a friend, in addition to recommending your easy to follow videos to other friends.

      75 hats -and you’re basically new to loom knitting. WOW WOW WOW Jeannine so awesome. Thank you for sharing with me. I have smiled ear to ear.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I am new to loom knitting and this is my first comment here, but wanted to say thank you for all that you do.

    Because of you and your wonderful videos I have hand made nearly all of my Christmas gifts this year. I’ve made your fingerless gloves, hats, cowl, slippers, dolls with matching beanies for the little ones receiving the doll, and used your stitch tutorials to find and make a purse for my daughter. My next project will be your beaded fringe shawl as a birthday gift. I’m so excited! Learning through your most amazing site is helping to teach me to follow patterns . I’ve been using leftover yarn to make baby beanie hats I donated to a local shelter. I think I have the fever so when I saw your video I just felt compelled to comment and day thank you for sharing so much of your time and talent. I appreciate you!

      Peggy talking about a virtual hug… thank you so much for sharing. You my friend have been a busy bee – sooooo awesome. By the way I love that shawl I’m sure the recipient will love it. So happy I can be a part of it all.
      Big Hugs !

    I retired from teaching (elementary school) in the summer of 2014. At the time I did not know what I wanted to do, how to spend all my free time. I began praying, asking God to show me how I could serve Him. About 6 months after retiring, another retired teacher sent me your video on knitting a hat on a round loom. I did not know why she picked me, and at first I thought that it was crazy. I watched the video, though, and I thought, “Hey! I can do that!” Of course, I had to watch it several more times before I even felt comfortable buying the materials that I needed to get started! Then I had to replay it whenever I got to a new part (such as making the brim and closing up the hat).

    Last Christmas I donated about 10 hats to a homeless shelter and another 10 to a food pantry. When I was sharing what I was doing at church one Sunday, a man in the congregation said that he found that a scarf tucked into his shirt kept him extra warm. Wow! If I could make a hat, I thought, I should be able to make a scarf. So I got started on that.

    Yesterday I donated 32 hat and scarf sets to a homeless shelter. I find that now I can make a hat in about 2 to 3 hours. Of course, since you suggest that the scarves should be 4 to 5 feet long, they take longer, but I find that I can work on them when I am in meetings, watching tv or talking to others. I have also been teaching a few people at a free community lunch/crafting time that we have on the first Tuesday of each month.

    Thank you, Denise, for sharing your talent!

      OH my goodness – this is soooooooooooooooooo awesome. Thank you for sharing 32 hats and scarves you are the super knitter Mary. Thank you sister for sharing with me. God is great and isn’t it awesome when He invites us and allows us to serve his people. I LOVE IT !!! Thank soooooooo much Mary.

      • Mary Billingsley November 25, 2017 at 11:02 am Reply

        Whoops! I mis-typed the length that you suggested for the scarf. I meant to say 4 to 6 feet.

    Thank you for your wonderful website and videos. I pulled out our looms and my 10yr dd made a cute hat for herself and we made one for charity. Your videos are easy to follow and very informative. I met a lady the other day that saw me looming and said she bought one but didn’t know how to start. I told her to look you up and watch your videos. Hope you have the best Holidays and Thank You for your gifts to us…Looming.

    Hi Denise,
    I’m new to looming and quickly became addicted after watching you tutorial “Looming for beginners.” So far I’ve loomed a Santa hat for my nephew and a purple hat for my niece. They both turned out perfect. I’m having a lot of trouble catching on to the heel part of slippers though. I really want to make myself a pair of boot slippers. I’ve only seen the tutorial you have on how to loom lady slippers. Is there one on your channel for boot style slippers? Your tutorials are so much easier to follow than most others.
    I want to thank you for making these tutorials. They are so so helpful. Thank you so much.
    Happy Thanksgiving from Canada

      Darla – thank you for your sweet words. I do have a boot sock but I’m not to happy with it. I’ve already planed a boot sock for January or February.

    Thank YOU Denise!!! When I got my first scarf loom for Christmas 3 yrs ago I knew nothing about loom knitting. I found your site on YTube and never left.I couldn’t wait to try everything on your site. With your videos I bought new looms, different yarn and began making other items besides scarves. I am now the proud owner of 2 different types of round looms, a set of long looms,a flower loom, a spool loom, an adjustable hat loom, an AIO loom, an Afghan loom nd several stashed of yarn.I have even learned to needle knit and it’s all because of you and your videos! So thank you for bringing out the crafter in me😊

    Well Denise, thank YOU for your thank you!! You were my first “stop” when I started loom knitting a year ago and I kept thinking, “wow, this lady is such a superb teacher and she speaks so clearly!” You are so dependable and consistent with the high quality of your videos – the lighting is just right, you always have the angle of the camera perfectly positioned and I am never confused (and that’s saying something!). I’m sad to hear you receive negative comments and I can’t imagine why anyone would have anything bad to say. There is no room for that kind of ugliness in the world. I hope you will continue to educate and inspire all loom knitters both new and experienced. I am so grateful for the vast talent of loom knitters who are willing to share their creativity and expertise. Thank you so much for the time and effort you put forth for all of us!

    I’ve enjoyed your videos very much. When I need help doing a stitch I’m not sure of, I look on your site first to see if I can find the info I need. I like you and feel that you are a good, sweet, gentle person. I’m sorry there are gutless bullies out there that hides behind the internet to hurt people that they don’t really know and probably don’t really have any feelings for but to inflict pain. keep up the good work you do and can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

    Denise, what a lovely video! We need more people in the world like you. I have been following your videos for a long time; learning how to loom knit and just thoroughly enjoying myself. I have been kind of a silent friend. But after my 4 year old granddaughter kindly let me know how she felt when no toy arrived with her new hat and scarf and I saw your doll videos, I had to reach out to tell you how grateful I was. I was surprised when you commented back because I knew how incredibly busy you must be. I went to college when I was in my early 50″s to get my art degree. Going to school as an adult made me realize several things. I thrive in the academic world and I recognize a good teacher. I found with your first video what a wonderful teacher you are. You have a soothing voice and calm manner. You keep things simple and make yourself available for further assistance. Like all good teachers you do this because you truly care as shown by your thank you video. Thank you for helping us and thinking about us for this upcoming holiday. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I’m looking forward to being a not so silent friend in the future.

    I’ve not watched any of your vids. I’m not one of your ardent followers either. After watching this vid I think I will pay closer attention now. I started knitting last year with the goal in mind to make a “Dickie”, a neck warmer, a neck gaiter. I think the word “Dickie” is a horrible word for a neck warmer. After knitting about 5 oven pads with some success I’m still a long ways off from making a neck warmer with tails. I stopped knitting for a while and I’m working back into it. Thank you again for your vid of being Thankful, Grateful, and so Blessed!

      Charles – you my friend, had me rolling …. way too funny. Welcome to the family. My husband rides a motorcycle and loves those neck warmers for the whole 2 days in the year that it’s cold here in South Florida.

    I found your videos last fall. They are so clear and easy to follow. I felt so comfortable using the loom with your help I decided to make winter scarves for all 110 clients of our local Meals on Wheels as a small Christmas gift. I started the project right after Christmas last year and finished the last one yesterday. Now I’m finally going to make an infinity scarf for myself!
    Thanks for your great videos.

    Oh Denise, when I found you, my life became so much fuller. With hands a bit disabled I’m not able to do conventional knitting. But I’ve learned so much from you. I knit lots of hats for cancer and scarves for refugees. Been taking a hiatis for a few months to knit Christmas gifts for grand and great-grand children. But will be back to charity work quite soon (one gift to go). I love the kindness and caring that your voice exudes. So I need to thank you for adding so much richness to my life so that I can serve others. May God bless you!

    I always look for your videos and have been following you since the beginning of your mission days. Your videos are easy to follow and try to fix problems before they even occurred. I started looming because I needed to keep busy after several surgeries and adjusting to living with my son and daughter in law. She started me with simple pattern of slipper socks and as she has said I left her in the dust. The only things I don’t loom are clothing. I tried a poncho, but it came out terrible. She wore it once so as not to hurt my feelings and I haven’t seen it since. Hats and blankets are what I do most ,with a few doggie sweaters thrown in. Have sent many to charities.. I finally made a blanket for myself but that was unusual. I am working on a Tunisian blanket of Harley Davidson for my son for Christmas and was very nervous, but it came out well. Don’t know if I will ever do black on black again though.

    I just wanted you to know that you have been a great help in teaching me to help others.

    Thank you.
