Making Socks on a Loom

I noticed a book in HL about making socks with #1 yarn on a loom. They looked great. Have any of you made them this way?

A gave my daughter a set of larger looms one Christmas and she’s made lots of scarves and hats with it, but this is the first I’ve seen of socks being made this way.

HL didn’t carry the size loom needed to make them though. Probably, would have to buy it on line. They should be quicker to work on a loom.

I wish KnitPicks carried a good quality assortment of looms.** HINT HINT**

I have knitted socks on a knitting machine before. It is basically a tube with a short row heel in the middle.
