Just Love My Tools (plus a little sneak peak)

When I started this blog, I knew that I would be featuring my hand made cards.  In fact, that is what brought me into the blogosphere in the first place.  But I wanted to keep it open to some of my other loves, one of which is knitting.  I've been happily knitting away on a little scarf I am giving as a prize in a particular group (you know who you are), using a very special pair of needles that I have in my collection.  I couldn't say exactly where I came upon these different needles, but they were made by some wonderful craftspeople.  I thought you might enjoy seeing some of them.
The pair on the left are made of a very pretty pearlized plastic with Fimo bead tops.  The next three are beautiful rosewood with tops done in cloisonne beads.  Next to those is a pair of glass needles.  I have to admit, I have not used these just yet; I'm so afraid I'll knock them into something and break them.  The last, I believe, is made of birch, and I think the top is a painted wooden bead.

Here's a slightly closer look.  It's such a treat to have these wonderful tools with which to knit.

Well, thanks for looking.  I'd best get back to my knitting; the prize is due this week.

Do keep your creative genius flowing.........................
