An antique (70's or 80's) Boye Needle Master set of circs. The US 10.5 needles and the 21 inch cord are the "only" things missing. The instructions are still there! My best friend gave it to me, it was her mother's. Now to search eBay for the missing pieces and perhaps a Needle Master Junior. :happydance: :yay:

Yes I meant to say that LOL. Their cords are kinda thick, but definitely workable

You can start a knitting museum! I sure hope you can find the missing pieces, there was a thread about an old set someone else had and I think they were looking for missing parts too.

I have never tried them myself, but I have read the cables are too thick for magic loop. Still, you should be able to put them to good use!

I'm sure I will. There are 4 cables, 2 12 inch, 1 14 inch and 1 16 inch, needles sizes 6-15 (minus the 10.5), 2 cable connectors, the keys and end buttons. I'm sure they are too thick for ML.

That's a fantastic gift! Although I would hesitate to even call them vintage, as that would make me antique and some of the others... well, what would it make them lol!! :roflhard:
