Antique knitting needles found on Francis St

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

I found these beautiful knitting needles in Martin Fennelly’s Antique Shop across the road from me.  The tube contains 4 pairs of knitting ”pins” and depending on how you turn the lid, one pair pops out.  Martin estimates that they date from about 1940.

Why not save some cash and bring in your empty Eucalan bottles (500ml and 100ml) and have them refilled in the shop?
