Today I was working on a special order for a customer using my super funky French Knitting bobbin.
Everybody seems to have a different name for this particular craft.
French Knitting, Catty tails, Ratty tails, bobbin knitting, dolly knitting, are just some of the names I have heard of.
Anyway, my little bobbin, dolly, thingamyjig is a long way removed from the hand made thingamyjigs that my sister and I used when we were young. Way back in the 'olden days' .. possibly before the invention of plastic.. when thread used to come on wooden bobbins, we waited patiently till mum had finished two reels of thread. My dad hammered four small nails into the empty reels and voila !! our own little knitting thingamyjigs. Somehow we never really made anything other than long knitted tubes which could be used as scarfs for our dolls.
Todays project involved fine wire and cute little square beads and became a pretty little necklace.
My customer was passing by just as I finished and I forgot to get a photograph.
I'll just have to do another one now and be sure to get a picture.
