What is this?
I couldn't resist buying this needle with two eyes at the local op shop for 50 cents - but what it is for I don't know. Does anyone out there know? It's flat where the eyes are and round in between, about 2 - 3 inches long. It has tiny points at each end but is not sharp and otherwise two wide and flat to go through normal woven fabric. Tapestry possibly - but why two eyes? It looks quite old as it is a bit bent and discoloured.
