True story: When my husband and I were dating and I couldn’t sleep I would call him and over the phone he would read Dr Seuss books until I felt sleepy.
WHAT TEACHERS MAKE by Taylor Mali

the visuals tho
I asked for a(nother) needle set from my mother this again this year for Christmas. She’s already bought 3 in the past (a wooden interchangeable, acrylic interchangeable, and nickel DPN). She asked if I really needed another set. I explained the differences between knitting with wood, acrylic and metal and circulars and DPNs (I’m not a straight needle fan.) Then I looked at her and reminded her how much she benefits from my skills and me having the right tools. The conversation was graciously ended.

So glad I cleaned house yesterday. The weather is so miserable today I just want to curl up and knit.
I tried to edit my earlier post talking about these awesome things, but I’m Tumblr-illiterate, so here - have another post, now with pictures of ones I made!
I just made these. The little “needles” inside were hand-carved by me from the smallest dowel our craft store carried using a tiny little craft knife. The two mini-skeins came from leftover yarn from projects I’d previously made. The “glass” ornaments are actually extra-large plastic ones (since they’re going to be mailed).
These little things were fun and fast, and if you have a knitter in your life, you should make one for them!
Cutest idea ever.
The first of the Cthulhu Mittens is knit. It is in sore need of blocking, but I’m not sure if I want to block now or wait until I finish the the mate and block at the same time. This leaves 10 individual pieces left to knit.
