dear reader i give you (drum roll if you please) pixie knitting kits!
your eyes do not deceive you, those needles are made from toothpicks. should you want to make a set for yourself you'll need:
2 toothpicks, sanded
1 skein of embroidery floss
after you have sanded the toothpicks as smooth as can be, glue a bead to one point of each. i recommend making sure the point will fit inside the bead snugly before gluing. be gentle though, because you don't want to break the tips.
whilst they dry, roll your floss into a ball. you can wind it onto one of those little floss things, but i think it looks cute in a ball. more knittish, if you will.
that's all there is to it. once the beads have dried, cast on, & get going!
those of you who don't want to make your own, i'll have some in the shop soon. email me if you want to buy one before you see it listed (whatever color you fancy.)
thanks to my dragonflies for convincing me to make them for others, not just
to torture myself!
ok, back to work i go - pixies are pushy bosses.
