Knitting on a loom?

Anyone here knit on a loom (I think that is what it is called). My daughter is 5 (almost 6) and wants to knit with me. I have tried to help her, but she just can't hold the needles and yarn etc.

Tipless gloves pattern

I am looking for a pattern (hopefully somewhat easy) for tipless gloves. All of the patterns I am finding are fingerless. I want fingers that go up to around the knuckle.

Any crocheters out there?

So after about 18 months of knitting, scarfs, hats, socks and sweaters, I wanted to do a blanket. A friend thought I was crazy for trying to knit one and suggested to try crocheting.

So I made one top down raglan sweater and during the process it said to increase a stitch before and after a marker. It didn't say how, and I did knit front and back.
