The Knifty Knitter Maybe I've been living a crafty rock, but I'd never see these before - Knifty Knitters. I spotted them while I was on the Fun 2 Do site looking for bag handles. They come in various sizes and produce tubular knitting which can be made into hats, scarves etc. I wondered if they worked like large french knitting dollies, and having watched the manufacturer's instructional video - here - it seems they do, although at this scale I would imagine it'd be much quicker to just get out a circular needle. Would that produce the same effect?
I really must get around to making myself some larger gauge knitting dollies - just a few sizes bigger than the ones you can buy, so I can use yarns thicker than double knitting. I used a gorgeous two-tone chunky yarn for one of the roses I made for Sarah's bag and it was tough work getting the resulting cord through the dolly. I also fancy getting an automatic knitting mill - maybe this one from Inox, or the Clover Wonder Knitter, which has two gauge options (although I am worried by how much it looks like it came from Ann Summers...).
