...Cleaver that is... and I'm okay with that! With all of her glorious motherly ways.
I want to be the mom who bakes, sews and knits.
The only issue is... I don't really do any of those things well, so here's me sharing with you all my 101's.
Laugh with me or at me, I don't care. I just hope I can evolve during this process!

Bundle of Joy

And I'm not talking babies.

I was visiting my parents in late February and my mum presented this little bundle to me while I was there and wondered if I wanted it. It came from a really good family friend of theirs after she passed away.

My curiosity, of course, was making me jump up and down on the inside...

Nice little package

Huge needles!
I have told my mum a few times that I wanted to knit with 'broomsticks' and she made it happen. I'm so excited to have inherited these from Mrs. D. And am honoured to now have them. They are so delicious.

I actually wonder if Mrs. D made this little needle carrier herself or bought it? Or maybe she received it from someone else? Its well made and I love the inside floral fabric.

Are you getting the scale of these beauties here?
So I will now look up patterns for these needles. Possibly a cushion cover. Or a rug? It probably won't happen until the fall, but it WILL happen.

Thanks mum! x0x0


  1. Oh! That is so lovely and sweet! Isn't knitting a wonderful link between people, past and present? Here is a link to some VERY LARGE KNITTING that may tickle your funny bone ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5voV033GJXY

    1. Oh that is the video of the day! I need to post that, Cheryl! I'm now going to go check out the finished product. woohoo!

  2. This is what is fabulous about knitting. The way that you can pass onto others the gift of needles that wee once loved by the owner and then gone to love of another. The previous owner I'm sure would be thrilled about your enthusiasm, what a lovely gift and what lovely needles - lucky you !


I love comments. They make me happy.
