French knitting, spool knitting, corking or whatever you’d like to call it – these darling little Asian dollies really steal your heart, don’t they? Mom found these in Madrid, Spain and thought my 3 oldest girls would get a kick out of them. Only problem is, she didn’t realize that I’d love them so much that I wouldn’t let the kids know that they are actually for THEM. I did let my oldest daughter borrow one to make a few bracelets though.
If you haven’t used one of these sometime in your childhood, or adulthood in my case, the Fiberflux Blog has a wonderfully clear tutorial on how to use one. I’m in the process of making a bowl for an Easter centerpiece out of some beautiful cotton yarn I received from a recent Ravelry swap.
Don’t worry Mom – I’ll eventually give them to the girls…..after I’ve had my fun.
