knitted things: french knitting

I have this huge ball of french knitting that kids and adults alike are fascinating with. Well it was one but now it's in three, it's deteriorated a little bit with Moo's playing. The colours are so good to get tangled up in and there's endless possibilities for imagination to play with - a fishing line, a skipping rope too name a few.

Moo's Great Grandad knitted it over a couple years when he had damaged his hands and couldn't work for sometime. The knitting helped strengthen his hands and then he just carried on. When Moo was a baby I acquired it off her Grandma, she thinks it's around 30 years old.
Fun writing words or making pictures.
Rolling balls.

The french knitting quickly covers Moo's bedroom.  I love it, so does Moo.
