Ah, the Knitting Spool. It took me quite awhile to get the hang of this little tool. It frustrated me to no end, but I've finally become friends with it and have learned to do some pretty fun things with it. I was planning to have a finished piece for you today, with a knitted length of wire as its base. Then my back went out (also frustrating) and I had to spend four days in bed, so I'm a little behind.
Luckily, I learned that it's possible to use the knitting spool in bed, so I did make a little progress. The knitting part is finished and now I just need to style it up!
So, check back next week for the finished design. In the meantime, check out some fun knitting spool free projects in the School of Design. My favorites are Sara's Trios Knitted bracelets and my Knitted Cage bracelet. There is also a great step-by-step tutorial for the Knitting Spool. It's a very good thing.
