Knack for the Knook
I wasn't sure about the Knook. I'm a crocheter, but, have always tried to knit without success. Two needles just bumfuzzle me. Y'all got to believe me when I say that the Knook is teaching me knitting from a crocheter's perspective! I'm hardly an expert, but I am understanding the stitches better than before. I wish the hooks were metal, though. The wood seems to drag too much against the yarn. I hope one day soon larger knooks will come available for the chunkier yarns and finer knooks for sock yarns. All in all, I'm glad I got the chance to try this. Now all those nice knitted patterns are not going to be beyond my skills for much longer! Thank You!

knooking my new passion!
I have been playing with this for a week now. Started outlook loose but I'm getting much better at it and I really enjoy it. I knit and crochet. Always. Preferd knitting until now. Yes it's a bit slower. I don't really Care .I'm more interested that my project when finished looks good. I like the hooks and I wish they had more available. And an option for wood or metal. I actually like the wood better but if they had an addi type I would be purchasing both. Someone else said wood is not for everything and she is very correct. Knocking is easier on my hands especially the wood, and it stays on the cord nicely. I'm not happy withthe cords either. They pull against the hook and are starting to Frey. Please don't put down knocking as second class knitting. It gives the desired results easier just a bit slower and for me that's ok. And it works with knitting patterns so there's no shortage of those.oh I just LOVE Knooking! <3

Don't get it
I know once I learn how to do a decent cast on I'll be able to learn this but the casting on is giving me a headache

Freedom to knit- finally!
I love my knook! I'm finally able to do all those charity knit patterns I've had my eye on for ages. I love crocheting but could never make the jump to two sticks (the 'proper' way) so assumed knitting was for others and never for me.

The knook changed all of that! With the same movements as crochet I can now make knitted fabric AND it's faster than knitting ever was for me. I don't have to worry if I have to get up and leave my work- or even roll it up and put it in my Yarn Drum to head out to a friend's house- I don't drop stitches at all.

One thing I would change would be to offer options on hook design. I have been crocheting long enough to have a preference in hook styles and it would be lovely to have that option with the knook too. Perhaps a 'slim line' hook design and also a 'straight line' hook design option?

I'd also love to see an aluminum option as bamboo isn't perfect for all yarn fiber types.

LOVE THE KNOOK!
Because of a stroke, I cannot knit, but I can knook. This is so easy to learn. Am having a blast knooking all my Christmas gifts. Knooking is my new passion : )

left vs right
The only problem I have is that I crochet right handed and I knit left handed. This creates some issues on my end but the product itself is great.

An easy way to make the transition from crochet to knitting.
I just got my Knook and already I'm Knitting. I must say what a clever idea.

Now I've got the hang of it...
Bought this many months ago because I have tried to knit and find it frustrating compared to crochet. Originally was disappointed with the book (rather booklet) expected it to teach me all the techniques rather than just the knit and purl stitch.
Have since found several free instruction videos on Youtube and am knooking along nicely. The knook hooks are bamboo, which I don't like because I find they feel like they are catching on the wool. I hope in the future to be able to buy aluminium hooks in other sizes, a smoother hook would make it easier.
