Everybody Loves A Little Knooky
At a recent trade show my editor handed me a little kit and said "let me know what you think of this". I stuffed it into my bag and brought it home. It looked like a tunisian crochet kit, you know, tunisian is the method where you crochet but can produce a very "knit like" fabric.
I was wrong.
Knooking actually is knitting with a crochet hook. It's not similar to knitting, it IS knitting. This little kit from Leisure Arts is now available at Wal*Mart and it includes instructions, four beginner patterns, three hooks and three cords (the cords are the key to making it all work).
If you are are a crochetier and have tried to learn to knit without success this just may be what you need to get over the hurdle. I love how they took the time to put both right and left handed instructions in the how-to booklet!
Over on the Leisure Arts website you will find how-to videos for both right and left handers, as well as some cute patterns as well like these:

And might I add that this is the launch of The Knook Blog Tour - what an honor it is for me to be the first stop along the way!! And as a special thanks to you for stopping by I'd like to give away two Knook kits this week! To enter leave a comment below telling me what your favorite part of this summer has been (or winter if you're in the southern hemisphere!). I will announce the winners soon!
