>the magic toolbox

ive slowly replaced all of my metal needles
with wooden ones… seems like the metal
makes my hands feel funny.. even though
i really used to love the feel of addis..
ive heard fairies dont like metal.
surely they would
like wood

    Wow, that collection is quite lovely. I'm always afraid I would break my wooden needles since I have a habit of bending some of the smaller gauge metal ones. You are right, though, wood is so much nicer.

  5. Thanks for flying by Tiny Owl and leaving your comment. I am no expert with the needles but this Monday I will be knitting with a circle of magical women vests for babies in third world countries. Every stitch worked with love, care and candycane goodness.I do love both your Blogs. I will explore the archives when I have more time lost in the tutu, misty dreams you have created. xx

    I am doing the same. I have gotten rid of all metal straights. They seem to aggravate my carpal tunnel- the needles and weight of project. I love you storage pouch.Pandora

    You create lovely knitting Mouse!My grandmother taught me to knit but I tend to do free style knitting. Dropped stitches and all, so my scarves end up a bit holey!:)When I was little my nan made me a soft, baby blue Angora hat. I wore it and loved it so much until it fell apart!:(Your hat on (orchids and fairylights) is stunning. Thank you for your kind message about my blog. I have left you a reply on my site.:)Best fairy wishes Jo May.xxxx

    I think it just iron and lemon juice that faeries don't like.

    Wise choice on the needles.Alot of our metal is coming from China, either directly or indirectly,it is all radioactive, our governments let a certain amount in.Your sensitive, follow your heart,it will take care of you. That is why when I have to buy metal objects, I look for the old ones.

  13. Gypsy Girl says:

    Oh and about the fairies and the metal…again follow your heart, it knows.

  14. i love the tool box!!!

  19. I agree, metal feels funny! I like wood, it gets warm as you work. I will occasionally use acrylic needles, just because they are fun and funky looking.
