I have a few sets of dps that have never been open. The package has 25 cents marked on them. Back in the 40's, 25 cents was quite a bit of money. Especially if the depression had hit your family. Did someone purchase the inventory of a store closing out? Were these needles going to be used by someone that was planning to knit but something happened in her life to change her plans? Part of me wants to break that seal and start a project so the old needles will have been useful but the other part of me wants to keep the needles just as I purchased them. What would you do?
This is just a portion of my knitting needle collection.
This is yarn from our flock of sheep. Most has been spun to knit socks or to weave scarves or make pairs of stuffed mittens.
