Default Weave-It loom

I recently had the pleasure of meeting a woman from Brazil who was using a Weave-It loom, which her grandmother taught her to use at age 9, to make a baby blanket with yarn. I am now obsessed with finding this little loom to give it a try for myself and hopefully share with my grand daughters. She was using the 2" size and I found a 4" on eBay, but would still like to find the 2" loom as well. Anyone out there know where I might locate one online?

Good luck with this. I too have the 4" loom and the baby blanket that my Dad made with it for me 67 years ago,

Looks like a smaller version of the pot holder loom.

What size piece does this square loom make? Looks small.....I would love to learn how to weave rugs on one of those large looms...that looks like fun, but need the room for setup.....I bought one made out of jean strips several yrs ago and it wears like iron...

huh, I just saw a weave loom of some sort in boxes for sale but it seemed to be all for rubber bands.

The weave-it loom I was able to find (and afford) is a 4" loom (finished size squares). I'm hoping to find a 2" one day! I haven't had time to start fiddling with it yet, but looking forward to it soon!
