I have another French Knitter (from a different vendor) that hurts my hand, but this one (the mushroom shape) fits so nicely. It is easy to work with. I love the included yarn needle for hiding the tail. The included bodkin (stick for turning) is beautiful, but I’m not yet comfortable using it. I’m so used to using my simple double-sided knitting needle. The woodwork on the mushroom knitter and bodkin is really lovely.

Yes! Many knitters prefer a knitting needle for lifting the loops. I will add that suggestion to the description for the spool knitter kits.
Fine Craft for Daily Life
How to choose a darning mushroom? Most of the ones I make are much larger than the vintage style mushrooms. We Americans have big socks! We also mend elbows of sweaters that need a larger tool. Some have longer handles, like your Grandma's mushroom. I make them one at a time on a wood lathe, and finish them by hand, too.
Dennis developed the design for the Christmas forest, and does all of the production, from finding the oak branches to providing the final finish.
