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!
