Item details

A great invention of the 1950s: She knits serenely on with her flexible knitting needle... in bus or tram, unhindered by the press of people, causing no alarm, because she uses Flexiknit, which has abolished projecting points, such an irritation to grown-ups and such a terror to the children. With the Flexiknit the weight no longer falls on the wrists. The elbows drop to a comfortable position at the sides and knitting weariness is a thing unknown. The stitches never slip off; the needle and the work can be rolled up and parked away in an attache case or handbag in an instant.
According to the booklet in this boxed Flexiknit we have all been waiting for it: knitting with just one needle!

The needle comes in its original, but battered box, complete with instructions. It is gauge 8. It is about 8 cm long, flexible in the middle,with 1 cm needles at both ends. The box says "best English manufacture" and patent was applied for. I think it is a great item for vintage lovers of knitting.
