Knooking


I found another fiber "technique" that interested me. I somehow ran across it while watching You Tube videos of crocheting and knitting. It's knitting with a crochet hook with a cord on the end. I had no idea there was such a thing. From there I found a group on Ravelry and there are a lot of people there that have been doing it for quite a while. I didn't have a hook, and wasn't sure where to find one-so my first attempt was to drill a hole in a wooden crochet hook that I had and put a cotton cord through it. It worked, but not great. I sort of gave up on the idea. So, tonight as I was perusing the aisles of my local Ben Franklin craft store. there it was-one lonely little package on the bottom shelf under all the other crochet hooks. Of course, I HAD to buy it. So now I have an official knook hook. I have no idea what to make-but I know I'll be giving it a try.

  3. Is Knooking different than Tunisian Crochet or cro-knitting? ... (assuming I have the terms right)
