Needled

eBay strikes again. This time in the form of a bag of vintage knitting needles. I’d spotted some tortoiseshell pins in the bidding pictures and took a chance.

The good? Some lovely examples of 50’s needles and a fab row counter.

The bad? The tortoiseshell needles were shattered and lay in pieces! Agghh!

I salvaged about half the collection eventually so am reasonably happy. eBay is all about luck after all.
