I got the beginner set with my daughters in mind. I knit and crochet, and my girls crochet, the the 2 needles in knitting seems to stymie them.
I know my 11- and 9 year-old will be able to pick this up quickly. I think it might take the 7 year old a little longer because going through the loops with only the string holding them open takes a bit of dexterity.
The videos were a great help. I love that it is included - you don't have to buy a class to get the visual instruction. For those who know how to crochet, you have to slow down and pay attention, because it is different.
I think this is a great product for those who want to knit but just can't get the hang of it. My girls are going to love it!
The Knook is such a fun way to do your knitting projects. No dropped stitches anymore!Yeah!!! I have already started to make my grandchild an afghan. I am really enjoying the Knook! Try it, you'll like it!
The product arrived in very good time. It is well made. I crochet and knit so I will have to practice this new technique before I feel comfortable using it, but it is fairly simple to catch on. Cant wait to be able to use this as easily as knitting and crocheting.
This was a great promotion by Leisure Arts to receive a free Knook and paying only shipping. I look forward to trying it out after the holidays and purchasing some patterns for its use. Thank you Leisure Arts for this and other fine craft products.
A friend asked if I had heard of the knook and it was several months before we found the product. Since you released the beginner set about a year ago, I have purchsed several kits for friends, but have yet to try one for myself. Hobby Lobby has begun to sell kits in our town, but I have not seen the instruction/pattern books. Thanks so much for the give-a-way. What an unexpected bonus!
