I’be been wanting of one of these things for a long time. I unravel my knitting quite often if I’m not happy with it, and it’s really difficult to make good hanks without one.
Luckily for me, one of my friends, Maria, happened to have one she no longer needed (well, she had at least three), so I bought it!
I have no idea what this contraption is called in English. A coiling machine, perhaps? If you know the correct term for it, please let me know!
It’s so pretty! And blue!
And it’s from 1865.
