Spool knitting, learning on the job
By Martha // Posted 24 February, 2009 in: Art + Craft
One of the great things about where I work is that I often have the pleasure of observing workshops as the classroom space is very close to my desk area. Right now there is a knitting-focused exhibit on view for another month or so, so naturally workshops have focused on knitting as well! I was responsible for taking photos during the adult workshops, and I’d like to post those separately. This weekend was the last day of the ongoing children’s workshop on the many ways of knitting without needles. Having been curious about it for a long time, I finally asked the instructors to teach me to spool knit.
Here is my creation. So far I have made two like this and a third which is considerably longer.
