    Hop-O-My-Thumb

    I came across this advertisement in a 1956 advertisement. Anyone remember using these ???

    About 2 years ago there was someone on ebay selling a booklet with this hop-o-my-thumb. It didn't show the actual little tool your add does but she did show some of the resulting crochet. She wanted $10 - $12 for her leaflet. This is the first time I've ran across the ad that shows the little tool and what it should look like. Very interesting. Pam

    Glad you found the ad useful. I typically scan most of the knit and crochet ads I come across, just in case they become useful at some point and time.
