Reshaped: Knitting Needle Bracelets
You know how sometimes you see something and you think…I could do that! Well, I saw something (click on the "shop" link for more).
It’s no secret that I love my vintage knitting needles, and normally I would never do anything to harm them. However, I have a few odd mateless one sitting around cluttering up the joint and I may have sacrificed a few of the wonkiest for the sake of science, er, fashion.
At first I tried using boiling water to soften the plastic, but I eventually gave that up in favor of steam which we all know is hot, hot, hot*. So I put on my biggest oven mitts and was very cautious. They aren’t perfect, but I think they turned out pretty well. I kinda want to make some more.
*Please do not say I didn’t warn you. If you have a hankering to try this at home, please be very, very careful.
