not my finest hour


We lost power again the other night
so we had a barbie for tea .
I was having craft withdrawals
and was determined to craft something , anything !
Of course I think it is perfectly normal to boil up
old knitting needles on one burner as
the steak is cooking on the other hotplate .

My needle bangles were not as successful as I'd hoped
but sometimes crafters get really desperate !

WOW,worth thinking about a bit more. With a few beads on them might be a trend. Charmaine

Four or five of those on the arm would look quite good I think Clare...the good old barbie, what would we do without them...

I hope it satisfied your creative urge for the evening though?! Cherrie

Melody said...

T think they are quite cute. You'd have to be careful with the pointy end, unless you were hugging someone you didn't like.

What about threading some big chunky bells and ribbon or bow and hang them as Xmas decorations!Very creative by the way!

Sue said...

Don't give up, maybe the pointiness could be tamed.

Robyn said...

I thought at first view you were trying out a new method of knitting in the round! Is there a way of affixing a bead to the pointy end so the end doesn't go all the way through?

Robyn G. said...

Lol, well I reckon that's innovative... you hafta try :-)

They look alright Clare, just don't stab anyone with them OK?
We do get desperate now and again, hope you are dry?

Rachaeldaisy said...

You really thought outside the square when you came up with these bangles. What a clever idea!

Jindi's Cottage said...

How is it not normal to cook up knitting needles while the steak is sizzling? *LOL*

Taylor Made said...
