I really should be preparing for my interview on Tuesday, but I just want to post these pictures of the thimble holder, old embrodiery scissors and sock-darning mushroom ( I have no idea on the correct name for this!) that my Nan gave me a couple of weeks ago. I was telling her that I’m starting a school knitting club and she gave me a huge bag full of her old knitting and sewing things – these were in it. The thimble holder belonged to my Great, Great grandmother! its lovely, covered in purple velvet – I love things that have a family history, its weird to think that it was used by my great great gran!
