Favorite Tool of the Week

Do I knit? No. 18 years ago my mother-in-law and I decided we would trade crafts. She would teach me to knit and I would teach her to crochet. Neither of us were able to grasp it though. Apparently we needed more time and alas she was just here for a short visit.
However, knitting needles are one of my favorite tools for sculpting with polymer clay.

The aluminum needles are easy to cut down to size with a tubing cutter. I have lots of different sculpting tools but the needles remain my favorite.

  1. I shuddered when I first saw your double pointed needles but seeing as there was no yarn involved I continued reading :0)
    Isn't it nice when you can find a great alternate use for something!

  2. :^) I wish I could knit but will leave that particular medium to the experts.
