Alternative Knitting

I have blogged previously about my attempt to make knitting needle bangles. I also sculpted some into a random shape which I made into this...


I moulded the vintage knitting needles using a pan of boiling water. I then knitted a square using blue wool which I covered over a black fascinator base. I then secured the needles using spare blue wool. It has also been lined and just needs a comb attached.

Sorry the photos are rubbish it was taken last night after a long 24 hrs. My son is poorly and spent the night in hospital having tests. Thankfully all he needs is some paracetomol and plenty of TLC.

Looks fab! What a shame the "woollywotnots things to do with knitting needles" competition has ended. It would have made a super entry! :-)

That is fab! Just the kind of thing that a stall holder at the Ally Pally show in October should be wearing!
