Let the Spool Knitting Begin!

I don't know about you, but it's been awhile since I've pulled my spool knitter out.  Let's get back into it with a nice easy project:

boot socks, DIY socks, spool knitting, loom knitting, leg warmers


Yes, more boot socks.  This is for those of you who don't feel like cutting the sleeves off of your favourite sweater or making them from lace.  These are comfy, cozy, and have the real look of something made from scratch with love.

Here's what you need:

Materials:
-Spool knitter
-Wool
-Scissors

Go to Tuesday's post to find all of the links if you need a quick review.

Now watch the video to find out how to make this super easy project.



Tah dah!  So easy, so trendy, and sooooooooo warm~

Add a flower embellishment, pompoms, or roll the down~
I'm hoping to do another spool knitting project soon that's a bit more advance than anything we've done in the past.  Stay tuned~

Tamara-

I'm so uncool in the textiles world, that I didn't even know about spool knitting. Thanks for the video!

Love this! The socks - love. Knitting without knitting needles - love! I can't knit to save my life, so maybe I'll have to try this out. I'm starting a new link party today and would be honored if you would come and link up. http://www.gingerlymade.com/2012/11/show-and-tell-1.html
