Another one from "The Book of Good Needlework".


Here's a link to one you can enlarge enough to read the text:

I remember making those with my Mom when I was 7 or 8. We used a wood spool & she hammer 4 small nails in. I had a lot of fun doing that. I can't remember what I made with it. It could coil into a rug. It kept me busy. I also cut up old socks & braided them into a rug. All the old things are neat now & it was fun, instead of all these plastics junk they have now!☺

Wgen I was a little girl, we used to make long ropes on this tool.  We called it a horse reign.  It is now called a  knobby knitter .  It is basically a small knitting loom.
