This is awesome! Very innovative and reminds me of the knitting in round as a kid.

Crazy cool would be to see this technique on project runway (like one of those supermarket challenges)!  Cheesy

I've never done it on a pick, but when I moved into my grandparents' house as a child, I found a weird, metal sewing-machine-table-part that looked...  Well, looking back, I think it must have been to hold bobbins, but back then all I could think was, "This would work like a six-fingered, metal hand to weave on!" and used it to fingerknit.  ^^ 

Doing it on something as tiny as a hair picking comb makes me think of The Borrowers.  I can just see them borrowing combs and making blankets on them.  ^^

Ha! I love the borrowers!

I like this idea. I'll have to give it a try. I used to do the spool knitting on a wooden spool with nails in it. I have the looms but they are so big you can only do fat yarn stuff. Yours is more delicate looking.

I do not know if anyone would be interested but the spool with nails is a knitting Nancy.

I found this site a while and thought it was interesting;

Has anyone else tried this, yet?  I've been experimenting with different techniques on my comb.  I really like the "e wrap".

e-wrap - this is really nice for thicker yarn with less stretch.  It's much looser.


alternating knit/purl rows - gives a wavey effect and is flatter than just knit only.


rib - alternating knit/purl stitches on each row is also flatter.  I tried "seed" as well which looks alot like just knit stitch.

That's really interesting.
I've always been intrigued by these things but have yet to figure out what I can use it for. Other than making long ropes with no use...
