A vintage yarn winder or …?
Well the last years I have decided to keep an eye out for vintage textile supplies – they are getting rarer and I love them!
So thrifting it is! Buy when ever you find something! Thats my motto.
But did I buy this winder? No!!
I drive around Sweden and have my favorite thrift shops – or flea markets – in Swedish; Loppis. (loppe is flea in swedish)
And I have made a promise to my self: To buy what I find when it comes to vintage knitting supplies.
This one was rare. I have never seen it before.
But it’s was to big and it didn’t fit an ordinary skien.
So I didn’t buy it. I want to be able to use what I buy.
So I went home. With a knitting book and a wooden spoon.
And did I regret it?! Yes indeed!
It toke two days before I was able to get back!
And was I nervous? Yes indeed.
What If some one else fund my treasure?!
It was waiting for me and I felt so silly for not buying it the first time.
