Sorting, Satisfaction and Granny’s Green Glass

1   Inspired by Veronica, I sorted all my knitting needles in Granny’s knitting needle keeper but, after after about 80 years of use, it is coming to the end of its useful life.

2   Again, inspired by Veronica’s lovely blog, I decided to make a new needle holder and spent a very happy afternoon printing off photos of things I have knitted, sticking them to a crisps tube and now have the satisfaction of this beautiful new container.

3   My maternal Granny collected green glass as well as knitting needles! One of our dahlias has been blown over by the wind so I popped it into this beautiful piece of glass.
