Is there a crank style gadget for making i-cord with worsted wt or bulky
yarns?  The only ones I've seen use fingering or light weight yarns, or a
needle to pull the loops.

Thanks.

Hi, Barb:

There is indeed, at  http://www.bond-america.com
There are three differently named items:  Cool Corder(used to be called
MagiCord), Embellish-Knit, and Wyr Knittr, all sold from Bond America at
about $14.95.  Many years ago there was an item called the Hobby Knitter,
which clamped onto a table or counter and did the same thing.  These items
are hand-held, but you do turn a crank once the machine is threaded and away
you go.

Get a spool knitter.... those things are cool.... not to mention lots of
fun.

Thanks for the link.  Wyr Knitting, that sounds interesting.

Barb,
Just so you know, I think they are all really about the same, except for
color, though one would think that the Wyr Knitter might need to be a little
sturdier, but could certainly be used for yarns.  They all seem to have 4
latch needles(unless I'm reading the pictures wrong, which is a
possibility).

TTFN,

This is a link to a page of Annie's Attic that has a Wyr Knitter on it at
the bottom of the page.

Yes Barb there is, I have one and Bond knitting machines has several out
there.  One even for knitting with wire and beads on them.  In think that
either Handwoven or Spinn Off has a little review of both the little crack
hand held machines.  Both publications are from Interweave Press.  You can
find them on the internet.
