I have the opportunity to buy something called "The Knitting Pal" from someone, and I'm hoping that somebody might have some information for me on how this Knitting Pal works.
Apparently this item can speed up your knitting time dramatically, and you can use any type of yarn with it. It also come with a few patterns. I think she said 3 or 5 of them. It also comes with a few needles, clamps & 5 sections. I know of 1 person who used 1 of these in the past, and she completed a very large blanket within 3 weeks.
The person selling it is not a knitter so she can't answer any questions that I have about it.
Because I have never seen one in person, I have a few question in the hopes that somebody can help me out.
Oh, this is for the older red one. Not the pink one apparently "As Seen On Tv".
I would greatly appreciate any input about this item if you know how it works. Or if you could explain the concept on how this all works and what it can do, that would be terrific.
# 1 - Can you use this item with any pattern?
# 2 - Do you have to use it clamped down to a table or can you use it for making smaller items, by putting it
on your lap?
# 3 - Can I use it with all of the sections attached to one another for making wider items, by just putting it in
my lap? Or, do I have to clamp it down?
# 4 - How do you use this to make large blankets when it only comes with 5 sections, and each section is 7
1/2" wide? Or do I have to knit a certain width of a blanket the regular way, and then add width to it by
using this item also?
Thanks so much for any help that you can give to me.
