these are aunt helen's needles that got me through the last inch or so of ribbing of the baby sweater.
they were well used bates/boye's. the susan bates was bent. and the tips were silver:
i'm not an aluminum straights girl. i use circulars for ease on my wrists. but these did their job well. maybe someday they'll be used again.
i think aunt helen would be proud.
here is where i described her knitting basket. it's one of my favorite posts. enjoy!
