well-used tools

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!


  1. That post made me cry.....the one with your aunt's knitting was a good one though!

  2. It's one of my favorites... And I never touched the contents. They are in the same place as they were when I got it 3 years ago. I'll probably never touch the yarn or WIPs.
