Thanks for the tutorial on this...I had one of these as a girl and had completely forgotten how to use it! Now I can show my daughter how to use it. :)
You're welcome! I'm sure she will be thrilled! :-)
What a wonderful tutorial!
Thank you so much!!!
we used to make these as kids during the school year. We made our own knitter with wooden spools and tiny nails...how fun. This brings back memories :-)
Oh what wonderful memories! I had a cheap-o plastic one when I was little (I think it came with a plastic loom too)and was so excited to get a nice wooden one, it didn't cost much, but I am thrilled with mine! :-)
saw pretty ones at our local poundstore so got one each for my children as stocking fillers
I remember my mother telling me that in her school days, they used to take the wooden thread spools from sewing machines, – I guess they already had holes in them from which the cord could emerge, hammer four small nails, and start cording with a knitting needle, open at both ends. When I showed this to her, – I found it on eBay – she told me that I could make one myself!
