Kooky Chook Pincushion


Here is my Kooky Chook Pincushion made by me last year.
It is loosely based on the fabric chicken pincushions that you see on
the internet.
It is made with vintage cord for the body and a newly spool knitted
felt for the comb and beak and blue plastic beady eyes
Sometimes, with my purchases of vintage boxed spool knitters, there
is a cord included. I hate to throw away someone's work, and this
particular cord had quite some length to it.
So, I hope you approve of what I have turned this
vintage cord into - I love it!

Creativa Tricotin

Creativa Tricotin

It is always a delight to discover new publications on
patterns for using the spoolknitter.

This special Italian Creativa Tricotin shows us -
22 Progetto Inediti con schemi OR
22 new projects with patterns.

I purchased mine with the tricotin
included and shown on
the cover.

It features lots of decorative projects as well as
cute toy animals, that both children and adults will enjoy

The ideas in the book are lots of fun even if
you do not speak Italian - the illustrations are easy to
