Could you post a photo?  I don't know what a Knitting Nancy is.  And I'm definitely old school!

Oh, I just started doing this again too (the last time must have been 30 years ago).
Over here it is called "punniken" and the tool is called "punnikklosje".
There is a revival of these things for jewelry making over here, using wire and beads. You can buy them with 6 or 8 pins too.
I am working on a 4 pin, using some leftover gold color crochetthread.

I saw a necklace at a shop I really liked that looked like it could be reproduced with  a widely spaced string of pearls or other beads inside of the cord produced by a "knitting nancy" (or "corker"). Simply tie a string of widely spaced beads to the end of your yarn/string. hold the beaded string in the middle and cork around it.

A friend of mine a while ago used rainbow-coloured wool to make really really long bits of french knitting, and then sewed them around and around to make little purses.  The other thing that occurs to me is little hats.  Ooh, or little top hats, a la Dr Seuss.  They'd both involve a lot of sewing, though  Undecided
