    1. Hello! Welcome to my Silent Sunday and delighted to have someone new to visit. Mine is of giant wooden knitting needles which I snapped at the Country Living Fair in Glasgow yesterday. Big Knitting seemed to be very popular and I couldn't resist this basket of colourful needles.

    1. Thank you - friends bought some Big Knitting accessories at the Country Living Fair and have apparently already made a cosy hot water bottle cover in no time at all. I can't knit at all though the giant size of big knitting made it seem much easier.

  9. I think they are some form of knitting needle, especially made to be used for the fabrics that are shown! :)

    1. It was a lovely day Julie - I'm afraid I haven't got many photos at all as just had my phone with me and it picked that day to die on me. It's now off to Vodafone and I'm awaiting replacement! You can see all the big knitting things here though http://ingridwagner.com/interior-textiles-painting/big-knitting-big-crochet

  12. Wow, they're great needles! I'm hopeless at knitting and really slow, but perhaps even I could get somewhere with these!! x

  13. I'm glad there are people much cleverer than me that knew what they were, I didn't have a clue, but in all fairness I was so blown away by your header it was hard to concentrate, what a beautiful shot that is!
