I got this from a craft fair yesterday...

...and spent a relaxing evening playing with it (once I learnt how to use it that is). Does anyone else have one? What do you make with it? It goes by so many names (spool knitter, french knitter, knitting nancy...) that I'm having trouble getting good websites with tips.

I've figured out how to decrease on it!

I'm enjoying playing so much my DH has said I can get a larger one :cheering:
