As much as beautiful yarns inspire me, the tools are equally important. The simplicity of two wooden sticks of varying thicknesses is so cool. And so I thought I might share with you my collection of knitting needles today, particularly my vintage Bakelite and wooden collection.
The one pair I am proud of acquiring is my 1920-30s early Bakelite tortoiseshell effect two sided needles.
And these are my gorgeous ox bone crochet hooks.
At times, It’s the fascination of working with beautiful tools that make the end product irrelevant almost. These vintage well used needles all have stories and all have had their journeys… My yarn wrapped around them just extends those wonderful tales for a little while longer.
So if you are in the neighbourhood wishing to tell some tales, do join in.
