Spool Knitting - How to use a Spool Knitter Reviewed by Sue O on 2011-09-10 *
Would be helpful for the demo pictures if a different color yarn was used than the color of the spool. The spool, the yarn, and the stick are all red, so it is very hard to see. Need a striking contrast in the colors to see the instruction pictures better. Spool knitting is really fun and have done it since childhood. Was a great activity on many long vacation car rides. If you like spool knitting you can also teach kids to finger knit, where the 4 fingers on one hand are used as the pegs and the yarn is looped and pulled through to make a loosely woven piece. Google "finger knitting."

I'm 19 and all the women in my family knit. I remember watching my Nana spool knit when I was a kid, I made one myself, and am learning, I love it

Want to comment on Gerry's comment.
Me too! Well, I'm not 74 yet. I just turned 57 today but still remember my father putting the smooth finishing nails in the wooden spools & we make lots of fun things with it. Wish kids today wanted to know how to make fun this way. My 7 grandkids will though...
Thanks for remembering too!

Haven't done this since I was a kid, and I'm 74 now. My dad put finishing nails in a spool of thread and we used a crochet hook to do the knitting.
