French Knitting Doll

The French Knitting doll has always been a girls' favourite. They are also known as Knitting Nancys, Bizzy Lizzys, knitting mushrooms, knitting spools, corkers, peg knitters, knitting nobbys (or knitting noddys) or knitting knobbys. There were so many different names for these depending on the maker

Often presented as a wooden cotton bobbin with 4 nails in the top. These are still as popular today in many different designs but the principle is still the same.
