I thought I'd share a linky I found for anyone who. like me, loves finding old things in charity/thrift shops. Vintage Bliss hosted by Joann over at Woman in Real Life

My own find was something else for my collection of vintage knitting and sewing items
The purple ball of crimplene wool is my newest addition.
When I began my knitting wool collection, I started with old balls of wool/yarn which were all 100% wool because that was what wool was!! But of course new fibres that were introduced were revolutionary way back in the 1960s making knitted garments so much easier to wash and care for so although I would not wish to knit with this type of yarn it does have a place in the history of knitting and therefore features in my collection.
Do you have a collection you add to through charity/thrift shop finds? Can you remember knitting with these "new" yarns? What do you like to knit with today? Please feel free to leave a comment below :)
