Knitty Mouse

The toddler dress, I am knitting ask for a knitted piece of string to close the dress. Mostly  I crochet such a piece. But this day I remembered I had somewhere a little machine that could also do this for me. It was an old piece kept from my mothers stash when she died. I had never used it. I remembered also where I had put the little machine and so I took it from its drawer and opened the box and there it was the knitty mouse. I even have tried it and made a nice piece of string for the baby dress. The original machine is German and called strick maus. Translated it is knitty mouse. You put a weight on a yarn thread and than twist the machine and the piece of cord will be made.

Greetings Elzeblaadje

      It was still in good condition, no rust or smelling. It works lso very fine. The cord looks good.
