My DD bought some of these to take on a school trip (long coach journey). DS wanted a go, but I had to look at the website to see how to start & continue them. Now I keep wanting to have a go!

Am I just sad, or has anyone else had a go?

Definitely sad - me I like to steal DD's gameboy when I can wrestle myself away from MN - obviously much superior!

- Ok - I like The Sims as well! And I'm very competitive on the playstation

Haven't splashed out on playstation yet - do you think DD2 first birthday is too soon??

What are they?

addictive long plastic shoelace type things that you knot into bracelets etc.

And you can get them in the 99p shop - so cheap fun

oh I see Thanks for link

Do boys craze about them too?

Or is it more for girls?

My DS is hooked, as are a lot of boys in his class. The school have issued a ban on unmade Scoubis as kids are playing with them in the classroom! (as were Tamagotchis). You can get black & white only ones, or multicoloured. Almost like French Knitting in plastic!

Will ask DS what he thinks then

Thanks for the thread

My dd got some on Saturday which I fiddle with when she has gone to bed. We got them in Claires Accessories for £2.00

I went to my sisters and my niece had them and yes - totally hooked. Wish DD was old enough to play then I could buy some and pretend they were for her!

Yes I'm hooked too! My dds are a bit young to master them but I got my dp's girls to show me. I spent ages trying to work it out and was so chuffed when I did! Then I bought a book and can now now 4 or 5 patterns!! Very sad but itis addictive and something to do with my hands of an evening - rather than reaching for the chocolate!!

Now just got to find something to do with them all!

This site is brilliant. Loads of new stiches clearly photographed step-by-step. I think Boondoggleman would be a great MN name!
