I really wasn't sure I'd make it to the computer today - I've been in bed with a migrain. but I am feeling a bit better right now. Sooooooooo here I am.
Yesterday's mystery items where Knitting Nancy's, Knitting Knobbys, Bizzy Lizzys or a mired of other names.
I first learned of then as Spool Kniters and my father made me my very first one - way back when I was in first or second grade., by pounding 4 small nails into a spent wooden spool.
As you can see from the picture the distance apart of the pegs makes a big difference in the tightness of the knitted rope it makes. For my Muffs wrist strap I used my clear knitter . I also used it to make a rope for around my great nieces neck when I make her a little muff for Valentines day.
The others became toys for My favorite mancat - Genghis Khat.
|Hey these are great. You don't mind if I just help myself do you?|
They kept him entertained all morning long.
|That wasn't nice Pellie! I will get back at you for making me look so silly|
|That's much better- Thank you Sir Knight for taking a picture I can be proud of.|
I slept and he played till he was exhausted then he came and snuggled - what a wonderful day it was. Headache and All.
