My parcel arrived, safely delivered by a kind neighbour to our island home and I wanted to share it with you!
Made in Turkey, these "Ebru" needles are handmade following centuries old craftsmanship. Just the feel of these knitting needles allows you to understand the time and care given to each pair by these Turkish artisans.
These beautiful knitting needles are the perfect heirloom item to pass on to generation of knitters!
Since I personally knit for little Angels http://heavenlyangelsinneed.com/ I decided to order size #5 Ebru needles and also to try their "Sifa" yarn http://www.theknitbox.com/ . Sifa yarn is 100 % cotton all natural and ionized with 5% silver, and best of all it is said to have healing properties!
The best part of Internet shopping around the world is the opportunity to make friends! I have discovered the pleasure of meeting so many special women whom like Figi the owner of the Knit Box have a mission. It makes shopping that much more special!
The Knit Box will be at I-Knit Weekender 10-11 September 2010!
( just in case you are lucky enough to be in the neighbourhood!)
