~the right tools~

"We shall neither fail nor falter; we shall not weaken or tire... give us the tools and we will finish the job" Winston Churchill With the right tools, you can do anything... so they say. With the right glasses... you can see clearly... with the right pen... you express your thoughts on paper, with the right needles... you complete the perfect knit. Namaste... I left you with this last time... simply meaning "I bow to you." But also meaning this Namaste... and their Vintage Needle bag ... the right tool for you and your knitting... and this tool goes to: Sarah...Bee House Hives!!

By the way; My tools at this time are paint brushes and ladders. Fall home projects will be keeping me busy for a few weeks. Wish me luck in a quick completion won't you? So I can get back to my needles ;)

Oh, I love the pictures of all the vintage needles. I have this weird thing where I have to keep every tool I own in my knitting bag. No wonder that it's so very heavy... Congrats to the winner and good luck with all of your projects!

I'm glad to see Winston getting a nod here :) An incredibly strong character.

In Nepal the children would pop out of nowhere and sing a cheerful "namaste" as you trekked on by.... one of my favorite memories.

Of course I'm wishing you luck - always.
