My Hands Can Do Amazing Things...

My hands can evoke various happy noises and wiggles from these three fellas

(yes, Oscar is curled up in a pile of knitting bags)

My hands can get this far on the toe of a pair of socks while my mouth is answering a doctor's questions about my health. (no test results yet)

My hands can discern, while my eyes cannot, that I am knitting these socks with two different sized needles (a 0 and a 1) and can do so in disagreeance with a (warped) plastic needle gauge.

My hands can NOT, however, make these:

Knitting needles with handmade clay (sculpy) sheep tips.

A friend on Knitters Review makes these as a hobby, and is thinking she's going to start selling them... $15 a pair, and you can even request specific color sheep! How cool is that???
Here's a better shot of another of her sheep:

If you need a pair of these like I needed a pair (or three) of these, put "Sheepy Needles" in the subject line of an e-mail to blwinteler AT cox DOT net

Okay, if I had ANY free time in my life AT ALL right now, I might take up knitting just so I COULD use those needles. Those are phenomefunkily COOL!

Hi Amie:

I hope all the tests turn out well. You need your energy for more knitting. I love the needles. I'm Very lucky to have a friend from Maine who makes me needles that I love too. Your puppy and kittys are very cute. When I saw the dog's photo all I could think was here kitty kitty.

Very cute needles indeed, you're tempting all of us. Looks like you scored big at the festival. I love the Bluefaced Leicester colourways and the Cormo looks like it has a nice crimp.
