I was given some knitting supplies and yarn and these things were also in the box...I have never seen anything like these before in the 40+ years I've been knitting, and assume they were used in some kind of knitting. Would anyone here happen to know what they are and how they were used?
Looks like a super cool alternative to the standard bobbin used when knitting or crocheting designs or small sections of color into a piece. I've never seen them before either. Perhaps they are from another country?
I've never seen those either. On my things they have a clear plastic tube that you can see on the blue and pink one where the yarn is pulled up through it...a lady suggested to me that maybe as a person is knitting along they pick up the yarn from this gadget to add in a few stitches of a different color (and I guess just let it hang till you pick it up again)...I don't know.
