Keeping some friends' hands warm

These are for the yard duty assistants at one of my schools.   A friend made the green and maroon tweed pairs.

Another loom to post for sale

In the Ravelry Loom Knitters Group

 In the back are two side rails that are 10 3/4 inches long and have 29 pegs each.

The main rails, with holes, are 16 3/4 inches long and have 39 pegs each.

The two short side rails are 2 5/8 inches long and have 7 pegs each.  

The little set has a pick, plastic nuts and bolts, 2 emery boards, and a little wax stick

Much to my surprise I unearthed this, which I don't even remember buying, used. (I never even opened it-talk about purchas-nesia.)  It's two main rails are almost 30 inches long and have 68 pegs each.   The little side rails are 1 1/2 inches long and have 4 pegs each.  

These are a bit problematic as the previous owner varnished them and didn't do a great job.  Someone with crafty skills or crafty friend could probably get it fixed.

 The varnished wood and the natural wood.

Stitch Marker supplies for the Marketplace

Take your knitting with you bags

I found these little Snoopy bags at Target.   The patriotic little purse was $5 clearance at Payless Shoes.  It's perfect for little looms and a bit of yarn.
