Handcrafted Mushroom French Spool Knitter


Here’s a neat little novelty spool knitter! Dave has handcrafted this 4 inch tall spool knitter using spalted maple for the mushroom cap and cedar for the barrel with burn etched mushrooms around the base. The companion needle is made from a joining of olive wood, walnut and mesquite. The four knitting pins are solid brass which will not rust. This unique set has been initialed and dated by Dave.

More photos of this spool knitter can be found at the Ebay auction and at Flickr.com.
