The other day while I was looking through my old sewing box, I found this cool little Boye Tube Loom. I must of had it for 30 years, so I guess that makes it vintage. I had never used it and don’t remember where I got it. I have, however, used the metal knitting needle that came with it as an important part of my sculpting tools since I first began sculpting 9 or so years ago.
I knitted a short cord with it. It’s okay, but it’s major flaw is that Boye could’ve made the pegs an 1/8 of an inch longer and it would’ve been an awesome little tool.
Anyway, for cording I like my Beanpot looms and Knifty Knitter tube loom better.
I think it’s a bit ironic that sooo many years ago, I had this loom and thought nothing of it nor even ever planned to use it. Now it’s a fun novelty that is apart of the looming craft I do now.
Just goes to show that one never knows what little treasures they may own in one decade that would be useful or a connection to something later in life.
Have you ever found a neat little something that you didn’t ever use nor remember having and then realize it’s connected with something going on in your life now? (I hope that made sense. lol)
Here’s wishing all your crafting connections be fun ones.
