A BLOG GIVEAWAY...

some of you might have heard of the KNOOK...not the Nook that is an e-reader but the KNOOK with a K that is a way to get the look of knitting with a crochet hook. i ordered it a while back but couldn't get into it...probably because i already know how to knit and would rather just use knitting needles. in any case, if you think you would make use of this, just leave a comment on this post and i will randomly pick a winner on Wednesday, July 25th.

this is a beginner set to be used with medium weight yarn and there are free videos online to teach you how to do this as well as a booklet in the kit. here is a link to the videos so you can get an idea of it and decide if you would like to try it. i have no affiliation with this company.

this looks fascinating Deanna but no need to put me in the give away...I don't have the time to let something else confuse me!

Wow. I can't knit. I've tried. At my best I still needed someone else to cast on and cast off for me. But I'd love to make hand knitted things for my dolls. So, yes please! I'd like to be in the giveaway!

I can knit and crochet, when traveling I like to crochet as you only have one needle to keep up with. When I have taught others to knit the process may have made more sense, if seeing it done with the crochet hook. They actually would understand you are wrapping the yarn to draw through the stitch on the needle to form the new stitch. It is an interesting concept. Thanks for sharing the links! I think this would be great to use as a teaching tool, but knitting the way I am accustomed to would be much quicker.
