I’d just like to thank my Grandma
for this wonderful but unexpected
needle holder that’s been living on
the arm of my couch…

    In my house, that would be called a “cat toy”. VBG! I, on the other hand, think it is lovely.

    That is the most beautiful needle holder I have ever seen. Did she make it? It looks store-boughten like the ones my Grandmother had (she did knit, but only tablecloths and sweaters).

  3. Re-purposing at its best! So much more beautiful than the tangle that is in my yarn equipment box.

    I used to make doilies (umm, my major crochet phase was in high school) and filet crochet all the time, but I don’t think I ever did anything as stunning as this. It’s wonderful!

    From you Polish Grandma, perhaps? Mine made all sorts of lovely lace things on tiny, tiny, tiny crochets hooks (which I now have). Unfortunately, she also made swan-shaped soap covers and toilet paper covers that looked like a bell skirt, complete with a plastic doll toso on top. Those, I do not have…:)

    OH! Now I’m all sentimental!

    Busia (Polish for Granma) was just nutz about making those Doll Toliet Paper Tidies!

    Here’s a cool site link if you are as Verklempt as I: http://swapatorium.blogspot.com/2007/07/dress-you-up.html#links

    BTW, I can REALLY see how my *needle holder* would appeal to the Kitty Kats…

    This is such a great idea! Anyone with a Polish grandma has at least a few of these around.

    I feel nostalgic. I received a gift many years ago of beautiful crocheted textiles and I was never sure what to do with them. Too small for placemats – too large as a decorative doily. I’m going to try draping them on the couch!
