    I went to a yard sale weekend before last and found an interesting kit called “Speed-O-Weave.” It’s six angled pieces that you fasten together to make a loom. You wrap yarn back and forth and then tie the intersections and end up with place mats or doilies. It’s missing the shuttle, but I imagine I can improvise. I took some pictures but I don’t know how to post them; but meanwhile, I found one on eBay if you want to see what it looks like:

    The pattern book that’s shown came with my kit, too.

    It seems they also made rectangular as well as hexagonal ones, judging by what I found on eBay.

      I have a variation of this produced by “For Love or Money Looms!!” Mine uses screws to connect the pieces and I need to replace the screws. It has been on my list to feature here one day. I’ve mostly seen them used for hot pads and placemats, but I can easily see it as a blanket or similar as well. Have you tried it yet?
