heirloom handmade items

I am looking for ideas for displaying heirloom handmade items. This is an apron my husband grandma made- his mom's side. It's hard to tell but she used little bitty black stitches, that was sort of her signature of the quilt.

Straight knitting looms

This is my newest adventure- you can see how it is laced- double knit style- other you can see how it works out- blue that doesn't match is guide thread.

Knitting Looms

There are different sorts of Knitting Looms- ones I have are called Knifty Knitter by Provo craft. Which is the first picture. These are plastic.
Some of the looms come in wood. There are several books on loom crafts. These books are available on first site I mentioned:




The loomroom has videos.

Knitted coin/makeup purse

This is stage 1 of the small knitted purse I am making. I will make a lining for it, also sew a button on the front. It is a gift I am making. Mohair yarn I found at the thrift shop.

I will post finished picture probably tomorrow.

Dish or Bath Mitt

We've been having a discussion on the Purple Ink (writing list) about crotchet and knitting. This is a Dish/Bath Mitt I knitted with my knitting loom- Smallest the blue one, free pattern off an on line site. Not really fancy but I like something to do with my hands when I am watching a video or talking to dh in the evening.
