A to Z Challenge | K is for KNITTING NEEDLES


Hello there.
Welcome to Entrepreneurial Goddess.
I'm taking part in the 2015 AtoZ Challenge - 26 posts on 26 days of April with Sundays off. My theme is "Things around my home". All photos are by me, Entrepreneurial Goddess. Find my other entries here...
  Years ago, a good friend of mine taught me how to crochet and I taught myself how to knit. They are very relaxing hobbies. I've seen some really fantastic creations, like hand-crochet afghans, which I'm told can sometimes take years to make!

Sadly, I just don't have the time nowadays to engage in these age-old crafts. However, I still have my knitting needles from my younger days back in the UK. WoW...Milward needles in a vinyl case...now we're really going back in time...oh I can feel a moment of nostalgia coming on...makes me feel old! I wonder if they're worth anything!!!
Today's letter is: K for Knitting Needles


See you next time!

  2. Knitting seems to be having a revival. My husband was working with a group of college kids over the summer in a math research program, and by the end, one knitter had taught all the other kids the basics.

    1. Hello Tamara.
      One is never to young or old to learn how to knit. It's such a relaxing craft...definitely teaches us how to be patient and focused!
      Thanks for sharing and visiting.

  3. I love knitted clothing: scarves, hats, even purses! But, sadly, I don't knit. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. Hello Jennifer.
      There's something very homey about knitted things. I think of all the love and care that went in to making such things.
      I appreciate the visit.

  4. I love your blog and will be following. I also taught myself how to knit and although I love it, I have to admit to doing a whole lot more crocheting.

    1. Hello Julie.
      It's funny how we never have time to do those things that are actually relaxing! lol

      Happy crafting!

  5. When I was an exchange student living in Norway, ALL of my female classmates were into knitting. Seriously, when there was a break between classes, all of them would open their bags, take out their knitting and the clicking of needles would begin. I tried valiantly to learn, but apparently I just don't have the knitting gene! I bet someone would be delighted to have that set of needles!

    1. Hello EcoCatLady.
      I'm envisioning all the ladies whipping out their knitting (lol). I'm not in any hurry to either sell or give away my needles...they're antique! (smile)
      Thanks for sharing.

      I understand knitting is not for everyone, but I gather there's quite a large knitting community out there.
      Thanks for visiting.

    1. Hello Stephen.
      I didn't know golf clubs were numbered...then again I'm not a golfer!
      Thanks for taking the time to comment.

  8. Thank you for coming by to visit my blog the other day. I would have been here sooner, but for some reason wordpress put your comment into the spam folder...how rude! :)

    Great post. I knit and crochet. Knitting was the first one that I picked up and while I do not do as much of it as I used to, I still love it. Your needles are really cool.

    1. Hello Tracy.
      How rude indeed! (lol)
      I've come across quite a few knitters whilst I've been journeying around the challenge. It's quite a popular hobby.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  9. I would love to learn to knit, but I have never taken the time to learn. Two of my great aunts were knitters and their creations are treasured heirlooms.

    1. Hello Heartprints Pets.
      Oh I can imagine just how lovely those heirloom pieces are. I think I'll have to make more time to start back knitting.
      Thanks for sharing and visiting.
