A Remberance Collection


Not too much going on around here. 

Knitting Nancy - finally remembering how to work it
Anzac Biscuits - remembering great sacrifices made
Soup and bread - remembering how much I love Autumn
A new project on the hook - remembering that like all ripple blankets, the first row has to be unpulled
Another learner - here we go again!

The Beetle Shack - home of stills collections

  3. Hi! Just wanted to let you know that the knitting nancy is by J W Spear NOT Sear. They started making them in the 1920's. This particular model was around for about 20 years before Spear was taken over by Mattel in 1994. Mattel did not continue with the knitting nancy but an English company called Rocket Toys did.
