Thrifty Thursday---Old Sterling and Tortoise shell knitting needles


These were dull and I shined them with a silver polishing cloth. They have an F monogram. I really like them. I do not know what size exactly they are but probably a 5-7. The ends also are silver.


They are 13 inches long. Marked STERLING on the back of the holder. This dates them to be quite old as most sterling is marked .925 in the past years.
The tips are still good and functional.



seen anything like these?  any guess at what year?



And to add to something I started this morning, I have another silvery bling scarf started.
 
This is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in the colorway Constellation
 
Using my number 13 glass straights for this one.



I like my circular needles but didn't have a number 13 in my stash except these glass ones.



So all is bling and bright here on the homestead!
 
So many chores to do today, but later this evening methinks I will be knitting by the woodstove watching a Christmas movie.
 
It's nice and sunny here in the mountains today but quite cold.
Sipping my second cuppa,
Jennifer
