Vintage Boxed Knitting Toy

This is an oldie but a goodie!
I just love the graphics on the lid and
the sides of the box.

And below - inside the box as found.
This set is from around 1910's - 1920's.

For lots more to do with spool knitters see

Thanks Elizabeth! I do consider myself very lucky indeed to have this set......being from Australia, we rarely if ever have anything like this, but thanks to the internet, my collection is growing!

I've left you an award on my blog!

There's a 1909 spool knitting book on Project Gutenberg.

Hi Shay! thankyou for your comment!
I do know about that link and other links to the spool knitting book - I actually have the book myself. Do you collect spool knitters?
