More Auntie Mail

In the recent box my Aunt sent me, there were a few more items to share. 

... a loom for No-Needle Knitting.  The instructions she sent me are the original pages from a 1978 Woman's Circle Magazine.  How cool is that?

...and she sent me some vintage stencils for decorating fabric and such.

That's cool. I'd be interested in seeing some knitting from this thing?
Are you going to try using it?


Kristina said...

Yes, I plan to use it. The pattern pages includes instructions on how many nails to drive in to it too. I just don't know when I will have time, but I do plan to give it a whirl.

Kristina said...

I haven't read over the instructions, but it appears you use a hook of some sort to remove it from the nails (after I hammer those in).
