vintage craft: knitting tools
Today I have some new (old?) vintage goodies to share with you. This box came home from my grandma's house sometime last fall. I remember looking at it then, but I put it in my cabinet and forgot what was inside.
So I pulled it out to see what was inside.
Wow! Lots of stuff...all good for knitting fun!
Plenty of aluminum needles. Bamboo is my favorite, but I also enjoy using this kind.
I've never actually knit with these plastic needles, but I do love what some people have done with them. Perhaps I'll get up the nerve to try melting one? Although, I'm not sure that these are the same type of plastic.
A few circular needles.
Odds and ends...more than I think I would ever need, given my very modest knitting abilities.
And then, what are these? Why is there a screw in the scissors? And what is this little aluminum thing with the point? If you are familiar with either of these items, I'd love to hear more.
Clearly, many of these items are new (yay for vintage packaging!), but for the rest of them, I love that they were used by my grandma. History always beats out new with this sort of thing, don't you think?
