Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Must Include the Letter K

The Alphabet According to Cee – K is in:

  • Knitting Needles
  • Knives
  • Black/Bookends
  • Pink

I did not realise just how many different types of knitting needles I own until I set up these photos. Some of them are quite old, some are fairly new. This is not all of them by the way. Just the more colourful ones.

The knives you have seen before, they are from mum’s wedding cutlery set with mother of pearl handles.

The cat bookends have also featured in this blog before but this time I remembered to give them a clean. They just got a new home on the mantlepiece with my Egyptian stuff.

The ball of knitting and crochet cotton came from the Op Shop. I always grab these when I see them as they are excellent for making clothes for small dolls like Barbie. I use my 2mm needles for that.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


  1. I liked the colourful knitting needles and the way you arranged them. Very artistic indeed. Very nice photos. I decided to try and have a lot of variety for mine this week and not have a theme.
