These needles came into our home a few months ago and are just getting put away. While new to me, they are clearly not new needles, and were found in my grandparents home. I can only wonder whose hands have held these needles, great-grandmothers, great-great? My own mother may have learned to knit with these needles. How many people have they kept warm? What lovely thoughts and dreams have people shared over these needles? How many comfortable conversations were shared while these needles beat a steady rhythm.
I feel inspired just holding them in my hands, and a little in awe.
