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.
