Well, perhaps it does not make perfect French fries. But I was delighted to see this K-Tel Knitter on eBay, and I quickly put in my max bid of $0.99 US for it. No one else seemed to be as delighted as I was, so I won it! Back in my early teens (or maybe even a little earlier than that) I had a set of two K-Tel Knitters (but with red rings rather than dark blue) that held me enthralled with possibilities for a couple of years, before I figured out that I preferred real knitting (this actually is more like a K-Tel Crocheter, in spite of the name). I did actually use them to make a couple of things, including a purse and a poncho or two.
Now I have a mad hankering for harvest gold, olive-green and burnt orange Phentex yarn….
