And who would have guessed, the little girl started forkknitting like crazy! In the picture you see the result of about a half day's work!
Now the girl may be ready for the real thing!
But first she gives this a try:
It’s an over 70 year old knitting board (1938). It used to belong to Mrs. T’s grandmother (another knitting addict). Mrs. T. kept it in the attic together with other old knitting-related stuff. A few days ago she saw a picture of it on Ravelry (thanks to another Dutch knitter). And alas suddenly she has use for the great ‘machine’ again.
B.t.w. The Spear’s Groote Breivlug (Speedknit) knits much faster than a normal knitting board, because of the shape of the ‘needles’.
