Hi Breezed, Knooking looks much like the same technique as Tunisian Crochet only 1) instead of using an afghan hook to hold the stitches in work, an anchoring thread is used to hold them and 2) the work is turned.

Essentially, it is machine knitting stitch by stitch instead of row by row. I can see why crocheters would love this technique, and yes the instructor was working slowly for teaching purposes... =)
