r-anne-dom : a place for me (anne) to leave random blog posts.
Such as:
..knitting, sewing, and other random activities pursued
..Girl Guides of Canada : yep, Guiding Lives Here
..the 4 shops on Etsy : one features quality handmade items; the second has lots of patterns, & crafting supplies; the third is stocked with Vintage; and the fourth is guiding flowers.
Enjoy the r-anne-domness!

Corking (Knitting Spool) Set

These are handmade by my husband - we bought some dowelling and he cut it to size, drilled them with his lathe, added the knobs/staples, sanded and finished them 
(boy, that makes it sound easy! - it wasn't)

making "strings" for a pair of mittens!

They won't break like the plastic ones!

And if you click here, you'll find a great handmade bamboo loom hook that will last as well!

For lots more handmade items, please visit my Etsy shop ~ ennadoolf.
One of my happy customers painted her corking spool - looks great!
