Good but could be better
My 7 ½ year old daughter wanted to make something for all her family for Christmas. She had started doing knitting looms to make scarfs but was running out of time with doing them. So I purchased this machine, for the most part I will give it thumbs up. She was able to do 6 scarfs in a week (of course wouldn’t have taking that long but she would do it a while then play then come back to it. If you will sit down and do it you can have a nice scarf in an hour) After about the 6th one the machine started making a popping noise when turning the handle, its having a hard time griping the gear inside on a certain area. She was able to get 2 more scarfs done, but now the gears slip so bad all the way around it that you have to use your other hand to manually push in the direction to help the thing turn.
So as far as working at first, it was awesome after a little playing around with, as far as durability, can’t say I’m impressed with that. It would be nice to last a little longer and I also wish the legs would stay on better, they keep falling off. I’m actually on my way to hobby lobby to buy another one cause she still has 4 scarfs to go and the machine we have now is to hard doing it this way.
So I would recommend as far as doing only a few things with it, she has really enjoyed it and is excited to be able to tell people “she made it”, just be warned it might not last as long as you would hope before having issues.
