QueerJoe is a Knitting Nancy
Or at least, QueerJoe enjoys Knitting Nancies (Knitting Nancy s?)! I’m sure there must be folks out there that collect these little knitting toys?
Another Flea Market Find – Vintage Knitting Nancy
At the flea market the other day, this caught my eye.
I loved how earnestly this person worked to create yards and yards of i-cord. I also liked the colors of the painted Knitting Nancy and the yarn colorway used.
A far cry from the plastic ones being sent out of China these days.
Don’t get me wrong, if I needed to make yards and yards of i-cord, there is a great way of doing that on my antique Gearhart circular sock knitting machine. And if I didn’t already have a hobby that kept my hands busy while I watched television, I might consider making i-cord on one of these cute little toys.
But for now, the vintage toy will remain just an objet to be admired.
Almost finished with the Tree Line Shawl by Jenessa Keller.
It’s large enough to make photos a bit difficult. But I really love this pattern. I think it combines two very different colors of yarn extremely well. I should be finished this week and ready to start up a new project.
