I’ve got a lucet and I know how to use it!

I first discovered the delights of the lucet or ‘knitting fork’ about eighteen months ago and tried to improvise my own lucet using something I grabbed from my toolbox (see ‘Knitting With Spanners‘ for a full explanation).

Recently, though, after being mighty impressed at seeing lucet maestro Ziggy Rytka on the telly, Shana decided it was time I got a proper lucet. Shana is nothing if not generous.

Unfortunately, now I am armed with a real lucet, there isn’t a ball of yarn in the house that is safe from my lucetting mania. Here, for example, is some lucet cord I made today. It measures seven feet in length, or if you are inclined towards the metric system, that’s about seven metric feet.

And when I run out of yarn, I shall unravel everyone’s jumpers. Somebody stop me! 🙂
