Spool knitters have been around for ages. Also known as French knitting, when a strand of yarn is looped around the pegs, eventually a length of knitted cord appears. I've had a few spool knitters, or "Knitting Nancies," but only in the plastic Knifty Knitter variety. When I found my vintage Nancy at an antique shop a week ago, I decided to investigate them. Lo and behold, I discovered an entire blog on them, with information about the history, different makers, and projects, as well as modern uses.
Please visit Spool Knitter, the blog, and get your fill of everything related to these tiny knitters.
