An old fashioned toy rediscovered! I have plans for a necklace wrapped around and around.

Would you believe I still have my original Nancy made out of a cotton reel.

Lovely - I have three of these that I have found in Op Shops! I spent two months once knitting metres and metres for a friend doing a fashion degree - she ended up making a fantastic top by stitching all the rope together!

Hi! I am an Aussie from Victoria and I have a blog - http://spoolknitter.blogspot.com - which is all about anything to do with spoolknitters (Knitting Nancies) and spoolknitting. I also have a group on Flickr - Spoolknitter - which at the time of this comment there are 93 members worldwide. Plus I am currently moderating another group for a friend in Canada - Spoolknitter on Yahoo (195 members) (both of these can be found via links on my blog) They are going strong and I intend to start a Christmas competition soon on the Yahoo group. I thought you may be interested.
... cheers, Marian aka Maz aka spoolknitter aka crazyhaberdasher
