As you may remember I have recently take up the wonderful all consuming craft of knitting and find that I have an ever growing collection of vintage knitting needles in both Bakelite and plastic and also a knitting needle box.
I just love this box, even though it is slightly discoloured / faded which is to me all part of it's charm.
My local charity shops have so far been a
good place to pick up vintage knitting needles
and at a third of the price that
I would pay for new heavier metal ones.
I truely love my news vintage hobby and although it gives me the needle occassionaly
I am nevertheless looking forward to
wearing my first handknitted jumper
made with love by me for me.
