I can’t pass a charity shop without a quick look at their knittng paraphernalia. Knitting needles are usually hidden away under the counter because “they could be used as an offensive weapon, don’t you know madam”. I love the old, vintage, colourful needles and I found this red, bakerlite, behive wool holder for 50p. I also couldn’t resist this pretty collar and lead for little Purl. Now she’s a vintage lurcher too.
