Knitting Nancy

I love to play.

I don't know how old my Knitting Nancy set is, and I don't know how old I was when it was given to me, nor do I know who it was that gave it to me.  I wonder if they know how much I treasure this little box and that I would be using it at age 42 and 3/4's?

To give a child the gift of crafting is a most wonderful gift to give.
The person that gave this to me, were part of the weaving that made me the me that I am right now.
Thank you.  xx

This is what I made last night.  
I love them.
My Spring wrist wraps.
They need a bit of a tweak.
These are not adjustable and I do need to make them adjustable.
I just wanted to make them and wear them to see how they
would go.  It's two thumbs up from Joyce!

Some people call it French Knitting.  

My box says Knitting Nancy.

Not many people know it as Knitting Nancy.

Perhaps I should rename her - Joyce!

What treasure do you have from 'long ago' that shaped the you that you are today?  
I would love to know.  


  1. Shes a beautiful old knitting nancy! Love the box too, what a treasure!

  2. thank you, yes, and despite having two little boys, I do believe I will have one of them who loves her just as much as I do. YaY! She will live on.
