"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

The Zippy Loom from Authentic Knitting Board is easy to use and will make you want to craft 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It's 5.25 inches by 3 inches with a gauge of .75 stitches per 1 inch of knit. You can easily knit a scarf in just 15 minutes! This product is great for little hands, so the kids can learn to knit, too.

 

The best thing about this loom is that you can purchase more than one, connect them, and create large projects in no time. The loom is great for scarf and blanket drives during the wintertime, and you can create multiple projects quickly and efficiently without sacrificing quality. With the zippy loom, you get both quantity and quality! As you work you will have a big smile on your face, not only because of the easy and fun way the loom works, but also because the Zippy Loom is smiling right back!


This kit includes one zippy loom and one connector to connect to another loom for wider knitting, a knit hook and step-by-step instructions. You can knit with giant pegs to make very quick projects. A simple wrap and hook process can create fun, easy knits. This loom works best with super bulky yarn, ruffle yarn and boucle yarn or double strands. It's made of high grade plastic and is extremely sturdy.

I have a Zippy Loom (actually I have four!) They are AMAZING! You can use bulky yarn, or hold two or three different yarns together and make scarves really fast. The large pegs make it super easy to move the yarn over. I think it would be a great way to teach a child knitting. I'm planning on making something bigger than a scarf, but right now I'm just into making super fast, beautiful scarves. I add fringe to the ends of my scarves, then attach beads--fun!

I have not seen the zippy loom before and I never heard about it but it sounds wonderful. I have been wanting to get back into knitting and also teach my grand daughter how to knit and his may be a better option. I would like to see it demonstrated so I will do more research on it. I love that you can connect more looms to it to make a bigger project. My fingers do not work as well as they did because of RA so I am hoping that this may be easier than using the knitting needles. I know I still will use them too. Anyone use this yet? Thank you for bringing this product to our attention.
