I have been working on this little spool knitting kit for a few weeks and was finally able to list it today on Etsy. Do you know about spool knitting? It is a type of weaving/knitting (also called corking) that has been around for hundreds of years. It was a great way to get children interested in knitting. I learned about it when I was very young.
Our teacher taught us how to make the knitters from an empty spool and some nails. I recently learned that there were all kinds of ornamental type knitters and they did not all look like spools.
Take a look at this flickr group with all the pictures and collections of old spool knitters.
Anyway, my kit is available in my Etsy shop. Come and have a look.
Now, in reference to Renea "Pocket Full of Pretty's" funny pics about the dogs looking out the window and tearing up their owners blinds, etc. Here is the view from the inside at my house.
We seem to have the same problem with Sebastian. He is always propping himself up on his elbows (do dogs have elbows?) and looking out the window. He has torn up many sets of blinds and the window is alway filthy with his nose and paw prints. But, he looks so cute when I come home and he is looking out the window at me.
