No, this has nothing to do with the e-reader from Barnes and Noble. This has to do with knitting and crochet - knitting with a crochet hook, to be exact! Knooking is not really new, but the first time I was introduced to it was a couple of weeks ago. I was just browsing around in Wal-Mart, and happened to see a little kit in the craft area. Obviously I was intrigued, so I bought it. You can also purchase this from amazon, if you aren't near a Wal-Mart, or perhaps don't like Wal-mart.
Now, I have only played around with this a little bit; I am undecided if I like this and will continue or not. I am no crocheter, so this is very awkward for me. Right now I am very slow, but I guess that is the norm with anything new until you get the hang of it. If you are interested in learning more about Knooking, you can find an instructional video from the Leisure Arts website or YouTube, or their blog, and there is also a Knooking group over on Ravelry. I am sure they will be able to answer any questions you may have about this technique.
Here is my video if you are interested. Enjoy!
