Never mess with a knitter....


...if she is a witch that is.

I forgot this photo which I took on our holiday in Cornwall. It was in the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle. I was genuinely surprised to see it as I'd never heard of knitting being used for spell-casting before. (And no, I don't own any glass knitting needles in case you were wondering).

I would expect nothing less of such a lovely lady as yourself : ))

Being cornish I quite fancy the idea of being a knitting witch! Maybe thats why I feel so much better when I sit down and knit for an hour or two!

I've been looking for an excuse to buy some glass needles ;-) Would you like some too?

Debbie said...

Ooh yes, although it might look a bit suspicious if all my friends and family won the lottery! (Of course, if I spread it out over several weeks....)
