Diane of CraftyPod has gotten me facinated with spool knitting with her post which has lots of photos of the process. Diane says, “This type of knitting, sometimes called corking, is familiar to Girl Scouts and schoolkids the world over, and yields thin, hollow tubes of knitting. They can be used for trim, of course, but I’m convinced there’s more uses lurking in the back of my brain. The simplicity of the whole thing is just so cool to me.” Link.
