Entry for September 10, 2007

One thing I enjoy doing is spool-knitting. Today I found a freebie on The Project Gutenberg . It is a pattern book of vintage projects to use with your knitting-spool! Look it over; I think you will enjoy it.
On this day in history 1846: The inventor Elias Howe patents his sewing machine. His sewing machine was not the first one invented. Howe's machine was the first one patented that used an interlocking stitch. Howe was smart to have patented his machine because another inventer independently developed a similar machine but wasn't quick enough to patent it. Go here to read a little bit about the development and history of the sewing machine.
