Round Loom Knitting

Just curious if there is anyone else that has done or who is doing round loom knitting?  I'm working on a 3 panel blanket and have been enjoying it.  I want to work on a sweater but don't understand regular patterns, let alone the patterns for the round loom.  I found a website that shows a lot of styles of knitting that you can do with the loom, such as cable, stocking, etc.  The greatest thing about round loom knitting is you get very fast results in a short period of time.  Great for beginners that may want to move on to needles and hooks!

Woolies in a desert?

Counting down the days until I'm off to Vegas.  As much as I'm planning on Margaritas, gambling and eating enough to last me a month, I can't help wondering whether there's wool in the middle of a desert?  Although I'm not planning on travelling out of Vegas much, if there is something unmissable nearby then ofcourse I could be tempted.  If anyone knows of any stores in the area, I'd appreciate hearing about them.  How much wool can you get in a suitcase?!!!
