Vintage knitting patterns and accessories

I love finding old knitting patterns, needles & yarn, I enjoy using them too. The old plastic knitting needles get made into jewellery & I try & match vintage yarn with a vintage pattern to make something useful. When my aunt died a few years ago she left me a suitcase full of yarn, she worked in a yarn shop & stashed just like I do. Some of the yarn went into a baby blanket for her first grand daughter-a lovely 50% merino, 50% silk mix in duck egg blue. I have bought yarn at our Guild meetings & made knitted ball necklaces with it & was once given 2 hanks of Big Ben yarn which I reckon was over 40 years old. This was knitted up into a tea cosy, the pattern was vintage too! Old buttons adorn some of my cowls and crocheted flowers. I have many needle gauges & row counters which I use and on the go projects are stored away in old knitting bags. There is something very satisfying about using something that has already had a life before coming into yoursa dream of loveliness elegant shawl
