Such A Great Gift For A Knitter

Last week, I opened an envelope, knowing the Christmas card would be lovely because it was from Melissa in Toronto. And tucked inside was:

This little antique is as practical today as it was in wartime. How many of us sit with a notepad beside our work, making check marks in columns when we do x number of increases or decreases on x number rows!! This heavy cardboard gadget keeps track of them all and has a needle sizer off to the side.
Thanks, Melissa, for such a a thoughtful gift. When I use it, I will be able to imagine that I am "knittin' for Britain"!

I had no idea it could still be used. That shows what I know about knitting!

Happy Holidays!
