Default knitting looms

Anyone here use them to create things? I have several,and several projects started right now.

Everything from a scarf to a blanket for my bed.

I don't have to patience for the regular way of knitting.LOL... however with the looms I can make a finished scarf in just a few hours,if I use the large loom,I can have a completed scarf in less than an hour.

Um..... I have virtually no needle work ability, other than crude button replacement.

The mechanical side of my pea size brain has to wonder, for instance, if you can assemble a bunch of winter scarves into a couch or bed blanket, comforter ??

After all, good, warm, durable, comfortable bedding is an essential prepping item.

The looms take no real skill,and are super easy to use left or right handed.

Yes you can assemble them together to make blankets,etc..That part does require some minimal needle work with a plastic yarn needle.
