I never thought of using knitting neeldes in that kind of magic before. The idea does have merit though.

We tend to just knit the mittens and belts with symbolic patterns for protection magic. In the end of 19th century they would wear a pair on their belts even in summer. Granny remembered some of the symbols and I wrote them down, but otherwise this art is almost lost - the knittings have survived, but the meanings haven't.

Oh absolutely! I actually have those needles and they are great. Glass is the material of choice being made of stone transformed into sand by the action of water; the sand itself then being transformed by use of fire and air ( bellows). Hwever I've found plain ordinary needles work as well.

Knitting magic is very traditional around here. It is amazing just what you can knit into a square.

Could I use a circular, wood loom? This is very interesting.

If you can get a suitable rythmn going  don't see why not. It is the repetition of the charm linked to the repetitive action of knitting that entangles the spell in the work ( at least in my experience).

This sounds about right.
I should try it at someday.

A simple boring garter stitch is all I can manage anyway, but this should do the trick.
I have yarn, I have needles, I'll never finish that scarf.... so let's do magic. *lol*

Ok. Thank you. Circular, wood looms are very easy to get a rhythm going. Smiley
