Something New

I decided to order some double-pointed knitting needles last weekend.  They arrived on Tuesday and I got busy.

Double pointed needles are used to knit tubes, like socks, when you don't want a seam.

I always try new stuff with leftover yarn, so I found what was left of what I used for a Christmas stocking last year.

This picture is about 4 or 5 rows into it.  I had just about gotten the hang of managing all those needles.

I decided that this would make a good cover for the handle of my Calphalon tea kettle.  It gets a bit too hot to hold on to.

Here's a closer look at the cover.

Now, to work up the courage to start on those socks. . .
