Feature Friday - Handmade Corking Sets!
It has many names in many places!!
And in Italian - Caterinette
and Danish - Strikkelise
But its all the same!
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!
|One of my happy customers painted her corking spool - looks great!|
