With this loom you can quickly use up small bits of leftover yarn also.  Once set up, the weaving goes fast.  The cost of the class is $75 and includes the loan of the loom, a yarn kit to make a scarf/cowl (in a choice of colors) and great instruction.

If you don't finish your scarf, you can take the loom home (with credit card info).  If you choose to keep the loom because you love it, it costs $179.
