A Couple'a Thrift Store Finds Yesterday

I have several things to post from sewing projects, and hope to do so in the next day or so. The weather has been so nice outside that it's almost impossible not to be out there doing some spring clean-up. Has anyone ever seen this before? It came in a package from the thrift store with several other items. It says, "Sew Hooks to Bra - Sew eyes to Girdle one inch below edge." Interesting! Sorry about the sideways. When I took the picture it was straight up, but it posted sideway. I will have to get some help from my son!

I found this metal knitting gauge yesterday. The interesting thing about it is that the gauge goes to 000 sized needle. The newer ones I have seen stop at 1 or 0 This is from the older days when many ladies, including my mom, used the small needles to knit doilies.
