flea-market finds: a bilingual tape measure with centimetres on one side and inches on the other, a batch of crochet hooks, made from a hard kind of plastic and much more comfortable than the metal ones (unfortunately with no sizes shown on them), and a pair of long wooden knitting needles with hooks instead of points - I'd be grateful if anyone could tell me the purpose of these! They are too long for crochet hooks, and have stoppers on the end like knitting needles. Maybe you just knit with them in the ordinary way and the hooks stop the stitches from slipping off? I haven't tried them yet.
Edit: now I know that these are Portuguese knitting needles and even
found a video that shows how they are used
