Handcrafted Acorn French Knitting Spool

Dave handcrafted this acorn spool knitter using olive green poplar wood and burn etched a oak leaf design around it. It is approx 2 3/4 inch overall length and he used brass knitting pins that will not rust. Dave also hand turned the accompanying 4 1/4 inch knitting needle from the same olive green wood and also adorned the end with an acorn finial. Both the knitter and needle have a hand rubbed bees wax finish. The knitter has been initialed and dated by Dave.
