A few months ago, a friend offered me a big bag of yarn she’d somehow acquired despite being entirely un-crafty.  Of course I accepted; I mean, really, who can turn down free supplies?  Included at the bottom of the bag was a collection of knitting needles.  This would be an awesome score if not for the glaring reality that I couldn’t knit my way out of a yarn basket.  I have them tucked away for safekeeping on the odd chance that I one day get around to learning, but I have a feeling they’re probably destined for an alternative use.  I’m loving the look of these knitting needle bangles by Jess of Epheriell Designs.  Now there’s a use for these darned things that I know I can handle!  [how to make knitting needle bangles]
