I finally put together some new knitting needles that sat around unfinished for a few months. So exciting to complete things that you start, isn't it?

This time, it's a group of little flappers.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Thanks so much, all! They are really fun to make. The only part I don't like is sanding down the points. The electric pencil sharpener at work makes it much easier to do, though.  Wink

Someone mentioned on the last set of knitting needles I made that the shot in the yarn ball looked like a snail's eyestalks. I took it as a compliment, and now I'll always shoot my needles like that.  Grin

You caught me! I adore Betty Boop, especially the episodes featuring Cab Calloway.

I did draw them all by hand, but I do that sort of thing all the time. Once I find something I like to draw, I draw it on everything. I'm just trying to find a useful application for my compulsive behavior.  Wink

They look eerie all stacked together. o.o  Eerie in a good, adorable way.
