The Knit Wit

I recently bought Hot Pink Heather a crochet kit. It had some needles and other tools and a “How To Crochet” book. As I bought it, though, I had a vague memory of some commercial about a device that created little knitted circles that could be combined to make a quilt. A little searching later, and I was watching this commercial for the Knit Wit. How many times did I see this on late night 80s TV? I don’t know. But I’d sure love to have that Knit Witted butterfly afghan.

  1. I remember these things, those commercials were on endlessly. That doodle loom pom pom maker thing was a ripoff, you could do the same thing with 2 pieces of cardboard.
