Another book that mentions of loom knitting

I periodically have to drive myself crazy trying to find look through all my craft-type books for something I remember seeing but unsure which book it was in. Not an easy task as this bookshelf is nothing but craft-type books (plus remote control car hehe).

(The black board you see in the bottom left of the picture is my loom knitting display board that will be heading to Michaels tomorrow.)

While pursuing Better Homes and Gardens Stitchery and Crafts (1966), I found a reference to loom knitting!

The instructions cover double-sided knitting and give loom design credit to Mildred Koch. The loom has a stand (of sorts) which I like - nice idea!

If you're in the Lancaster/Palmdale, CA area tomorrow (Saturday, September 30th), stop by Michaels to say "HI!"...class preview from 1 to 4 pm. Have a great weekend!

When I start going through my craft books it's usually an all-day thing! So I can relate!! I think I used to have that book at one time....but, darn, I don't think I still do.

I'll try to get by tomorrow and at least say "HI"....haven't seen you since the last one, I think.
