I have mentioned before, Mrs YS’s love of the craft of knitting. She’s an active member of knitting’s equivalent of Lumberjocks. It’s called Ravelry.com (with over 1.4 million members!). Who said knitting is dead?
Anyhow, I bought her some very expensive Knitpro 14” wooden knitting needles for Christmas. They’re wooden, and a real thing of beauty…
They are too good to keep in a plastic bag, so I made her the box shown here.
It hasn’t photographed at all well. Maybe the light/dark contrast of the two timbers I used? They’re wenge for the box and bird’s eye maple for the lid. It all looks much better in the flesh. The hinges are my oft-used style. How-I-do-it is shown here
Dimensions are around 19” x 6” x 4” and the hinge pin is made from…. a pair of knitting needles of course.
