Flea Markets are for Knitters

Getting to know some of the regular vendors at our local flea market has paid off again.

Cheap and Bountiful

I saw a large zip-loc bag with what looked like a lot of double-pointed needles in it.  The vendor had wandered off, but Thaddeus knew who it was and knew that his stuff was usually priced pretty cheaply.  So I asked Thaddeus to get me the bag of needles if it was $5 or under.

The guy’s first offer was $5, so I bought it.

Flea Market Needles

In addition to containing multiple sets of double-pointed needles, and some fine-gauge straight needles, the bag also contained a lot of knitting notions…stitch holders, needle gauges, yarn bobbins, cable needles, stitch protectors and stitch holders.

And if all that wasn’t enough…I also got myself one of these!

Flea Market Daisy Maker

Yes, you can envy me and my new Daisy-Loom!

I immediately made two different types of daisies on my new loom!

Daisies

Perfect little embellishments for gifts, hats, coffee cup cozies, etc…no?

Current Knitting/Crochet

I’m keeping up with my quota of knitted stripes on the border of the Easton Logo blanket.

I’ve also done a bit more work on the latest Interlocking Crochet scarf I mentioned in the last blog entry.

It’s started out looking great…let’s hope it continues to look so good as I progress.
