I made this clock over the weekend for a friend's birthday! Her birthday was actually in May, but better late than never. She's an avid knitter and has even tried to teach me (FAIL) so I wanted to theme her present around that.



I got a bunch of knitting needles at the thrift store, mod-podged a cool piece of scrapbook paper onto a thrift store clock, glued on the needles, slapped the mechanism back on, and done!



My favorite pair is the set of blue ones in the lower left corner. It was a pair of circulars that I cut apart. I think it gives it kind of a mod feel along with the retro feel of the houndstooth.



Hope she'll like it, even though it's super late. Thanks for looking!

It's funny, I just woke up, so I'm still kinda blurry, and I'm looking at the photos of the clock, not realizing they were knitting needles.  I thought to myself, "That would be a great clock with crochet hooks too!"  Grin
