When I was a little girl (many, many years ago ...) and we were visiting at my cousin's, she had waiting for me a spool knitter, much smaller then the one you see here. We spent most of the weekend happily working away with this. I don't remember now what happened to the little knitter but seeing the post at Crochet Happiness of a spool knitter giveaway brought to mind this sweet memory. And Christy of Crochet Happiness and her hubby make these.
And Christy, thanks for the memory.
