I saw somethign similar to this in a knitting shop the other day, selling for big bucks. But they were earings and a necklace of a bit of knitting in grey-silverish little needls. Very interesting.

I have also made something similar. I was bored, so I took the tineyest bit of leftover sock yarn and wound it into a ball. They I cut of the ends of wooden skewers (for some reason this house never has tooth picks when you need them...), stuck them through, and glued two really small buttons to the top of them. I also somehow wound the yarn around an old brownie star pin, then glued just to be safe. There you have it, a cute little knitting pin! Only problem, buttons fell off even though I hot glued them, and then they were lost b/c there so small. Here is a bad picture of it.

OH! That is so cute! Shocked I have to make myself one now! (I don't have any friends or family who knit. And I don't know how to make something like that crochet related... don't know where to find something that looks like a small hook.) But yeah, that is soooo cute.Cheesy
