Ive been teaching myself to knit for about a week now, and wanted to just make a couple small things to start.

First is my is a wrist cuff-let. Due to some prior injuries i have wrist pain when every i do anything with a lot of repetative motion so i have to take breaks, this cuff-let holds my needles quite well..

Its knitted in a simple garter stitch on number 8s and i just dropped two sitches on both ends to hold the tails to tie it together loosely.

Next is a knitted keychain again a simple garter stitch on 8s with some dropped stitches and yarn over to break up the boringness. I k2tog a few times toward the end just to bring it to a point and knotted it on a large keyring.

I love the key ring.

And the red cufflet is a really cool creation, is the final pic of you storing the needles or using them?  Smiley Smiley

that last pic was before i started knitting but i use it to hold my needles when knitting i just push the stitches up a little ways, i have to stop about every 5 minutes tops, so its handy (lol, handy) to keep it close by since im finding it addicting already
