    I found a pattern book for the knook for dishcloths that is really easy. You should give that a try. I like going back and forth with the knook and knitting because I often have to go through security and knitting needles are not allowed.

      I did try a washcloth (there is one in the Cozy Knits book I got) without too much success, BUT now that I have the general technique down I’m not giving up! I didn’t think about Knook and security, that’s a good point. I love gadgets, and pretty much everything crafty, so this isn’t the last time I’ll be picking up my Knook.

    When the knook first came out I read about the technique and thought what’s the point. It seems much harder to use a string as a second knitting needle to do a project. And after reading your review I still think so.

      I’m all about crafty gadgets, and also anything that encourages people to make things, that’s the two main reasons I wanted to try it. I still feel like there must be situations in which the Knook is a lifesaver for someone, though I can’t think of an example. I always love knowing different techniques too. I get bored easily, so I usually have one crochet project, one knitting, and at least one of something else yarny, (plus any non-yarny crafts) so I still think of it as something fun to know. Today I was balling yarn for a simple hat and said “Maybe I’ll Knook it, keep things interesting,” I haven’t started the hat yet, not sure yet what I’m going to do. Maybe I’ll pull out the ol’ K-Tel Knitter for the hat…
