Double Pointed Knitting Needles
Since becoming addicted to sock knitting I have acquired a complete set of bamboo double pointed needles. Everything my little heart could desire. Now I can make a pair of socks in whatever wool takes my fancy. What could be better than a complete set of dpns? A complete set of dpns in a cute jar!!
First I found a lovely jar that was lurking around the house. I was going to use it for a pen pot, but it was too tall. It was much too nice for throwing out so I kept hold of it for the perfect project.
Now for yarn. I had a small amount of dusky pink lace weight Rowan left over from a scarf, and I teamed this with a tiny bit of silver coloured Triskelion baby suri alpaca.
Then I looked for the perfect crochet border to use as a collar. With inspiration from the ‘Around the Corner Crochet Borders’ book (by Edie Eckman) I decided on ringlets. I haven’t made any spirals for ages and I thought they would suit the jar. Like a little ra-ra skirt! Finished off with a simple mother of pearl button.
I was pretty pleased with the results.
