KING AND QUEEN SPOOL KNITTERS

These spool knitters had been in the
pipeline for some time - partly due
to inability to finally decide which
colours to use (there had been
many changes) and
partly due to time!

Here below is the before photo -

......and here we finally have the
King and Queen.

I am in love with these king and queen spools! I recently discovered (or rediscovered) spool knitting since I've been teaching knitting to my son's classmates (1st and 2nd graders). Will have to make these! Where did the trio of cute knitting nancies come from? Are they new? Csn you recommend an online source? Thanks! Your page is wonderful.

Hi kitchenwitch! thankyou for your kind comments re my spool knitters!
A very talented wood turner made these for me from my design. He also made the knitting Nancies that I painted. I have both new and vintage Nancies. I am in Australia - you would have to find a wood turner to help you with your own spool knitters. If you read all of my other posts starting last year to now - you can get a better idea of my situation. Would you be able to email me personally? Thanks again!
