spool knitting, and knitting spools....


So, yesterday I actually got around to playing with a knitting spool, and it's great fun! I have never, that I remember, used one before, but once you get the hang of it it's very easy, and addictive! The red and white mushroom/toadstool is by far my favorite, but when I started exploring flickr, I discovered that there are lots of different designs, as well names for them! I really think this may be the start of a growing collection of knitting spools, maybe vintage ones, maybe cute new ones. Can't wait! I think this red braid is going to become a new garland, we'll see - not really sure what I can make with these braids, but they sure are fun to make! ♥

Aren't there some cute ones out there, and who can resist the Spool Family? ♥

I'm a new knitter - and I've never heard of knitting spools before - those look interesting!

These are much like a craft item I gave to my granddaughter at Christmas. I have never seen these before, they are really cute!
