I adapted the original pattern to make the opening at the bottom rather than the top since I fill my bottle from the tap and regularly get it wet in the sink, I needed a cover I could slip on and off easily, (wet covers are not nice - believe me). So I only knitted half the rib at the top and sewed it closed, and added a flap and buttons to the bottom.
Any Sherlock Holmes out there?
Yesterday at the Lacemakers group we had a collection of 'no longer needed' items available to take in exchange for a charity donation, and this caught my eye....
Sadly the label is partly missing but what is there says....
Full Set. Size 1
So I am guessing along the lines of The Universal (?) Knitting pins, Full Set Size 14 (since inside the wooden case are 9 steel 2mm dpns)
Unfortunately nothing is known of it's history and I'd love to know a little more about this set, especially how old it is, and what it's original use was (surely not 9 dpns for socks) so if anyone has any ideas or knows how I can find out I would love to hear.
