I hope someone can help me and my friend.
She is not a knitter, but when wanting to learn, she looked thru her things and found a set of size 8's that belonged to her grandmother. She sent me a picture and asked me what kind of needle it was. At first, I thought someone had taken a circular needle and cut it off, then added something on the end to hold the stitches on the needle, but that's not the case. She said that on the end it says "Boye 8". So... I know it's made by Boye and that it apparently was meant to be this way.
Here is a picture of one of the needles and if anyone can help us solve the mystery as to what kind of needle this is and/or what it's mostly used for, I would be very grateful!
I hope I get the picture in here correctly, lol... here goes...
