My favorite thrift find of the weekend.
I had a wonderful weekend thrifting. I found many items, but my favorite brought back childhood memories. I always knit with the small version of this spool, even home made ones made from a wooden spool and four nails. It kept me very busy when I was a child. Even today I will use the small plastic one I have with a thin thread like yarn. I came by this at a thrift store and it was only 99 cents. It fills my hand and as I'm getting older the larger the better. I couldn't wait to get home and try it with regular yarn. As you can see I am going to town. One of the wooden pegs has been replaced, but it is still in working condition. Now I have something small to do when resting in my big chair. I can't wait to crochet with the resulting knitted tube or create something crafty.
