Knit Club with Mildred & Barbara

Knit Club with just Mildred and Barbara. It happens sometimes, especially in the dead of summer, that just a few diehards attend.

Mildred Beeson brought a Mattel knitting machine and we all played around with it. It has needles arranged in a circle for maybe 15 or 16 stitches and makes tubes. It knits very well with furry or hairy yarn.

What fascinated me about the Mattel is that it isn’t the typical latch-hook knitting mechanism. The Mattel stabs the yarn through the loop of the stitch in the round above.
