The knitting tree

I got this fantastic handmade French Knitting tool, (aka "Strickliesl" in German) for Christmas:

Gnarly Strickliesel

It's made from a real branch and does work to produce pieces of knitted tube, although it's rather hard work. I also got a couple of others so I now have a russian-doll like collection of knitting dolls!

Hi! I was just looking on the internet for anything to do with vintage knitting, and I found your blog post on the knitting dolls (spoolknitters). I am particularly interested in these as I am a collector too. Perhaps you might like to take a peek at
Flickr Spoolknitter Group AND / OR
Yahoo Spoolknitter Group.
