I have the green one and made a few hats. They go really fast, and a good project to work on with kids. Smiley

I have it, and it works good. I'm just not that fond of the concept, I dunno, I've never gotten much use from it, I got it for free though so it is excelletn for the price Wink

I love it, but it is seriously lacking in the project ideas area so I've had to learn to create my own project ideas. I've made two awesome purses with it and I'm starting fingerless gloves now. It's so much faster than if I were to knit normally. Grin

My mom made a bunch of these for me when I was a child. (Similar, I mean. The ones she made were wooden circles with pegs.) I made hats, scarves, doll blankets, and Barbie clothes. I've seen them in craft stores lately and I keep thinking maybe I'll try one again....

I've only made hats and flat panels that I stitched together into a bag.  I plan on trying this pattern soon though: http://www.provocraft.com/projects/projects.php?prdindex=kniftyknitter&dsp=project&idnum=13
Has anyone made these?

Liquidwinta- how did you make the gloves? Was it on the tiny size? (I can't remember what color it is.)

Yea, I'm making the gloves on the smallest one, the blue one. They're really simplistic though. It's just a tube with a few dropped stitches for a thumb hole. I figure that I will thread elastic through around the sides at the end if they turn out too baggy. It's really just an idea right now, I haven't finished them yet so I don't know how exactly they'll turn out. I've been pretty luck so far!  Grin

If anyone's interested here's a link to two of the things I've made so far with my kniffty knitter:

This is a recent bag I haven't put a strap on yet, I'm not sure if I like it!:

You should definitely use the bag, it's really cute. You know what's funny- I made a hat with the Knitter and used the variegated yarn that's on the top of your bag.  Smiley
