I have never knitted in my life. I own no knitting implements, not even a ball of yarn. So when I read my friend Diane's post about her little girl being totally drawn in by spool knitting, I wanted to be drawn in as well. I even decided to order the little "knitting nancy" that her little one was using.
I got all jazzed up about trying this today. Right now! However, not having the power of instant delivery from the internet, nor the desire to drive to the craft store, I had to use materials at hand.
A worn out wool sock and a toilet paper roll should do the trick, right?
So I managed to get a small ball of yarn ready.
And I cut my toilet paper tube with what looks like castle tower crenelations along the top.
I'm not sure if what I did was really knitting. There were no directions with this instant made kit. It just seemed in my head like it might be the way to do it though. Plus, I did get a tube of yarn made.
Here's me in action.
Well, that was fun.
