    Not A Machine But What Is It?

    I bought a box lot of attachments and other odd things. I figured out the K Tel Knitters and most everything else but what are these? The top turns and the little spines draw in and come back out of the little holes. There are no markings on them to give me an idea what to search for. Are they some kind of Daisy knitters?

    I'm pretty sure that is for making some sort of yarn thing - you loop the yarn around the pins back and forth across the flat end, then weave around the loops. When done, you pull the pins in and your "art" pops off. kind of something like a god's eye.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I think they were called KnitWits. Yarn was woven around the prongs making a lacy circle or square, then the prongs were retracted to pop off the yarn piece.

    I've seen them called daisy loom or KnitWit . Here are some examples of what you can make http://theknittingneedleandthedamage...-have-one.html

    I think my sister made the daisy afghan shown on the website...
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Interesting.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I've got these - they are daisy makers as you suggest. I also use them to make needle lace similar to Tenerife lace patterns.
