Toothpick Needles

It's small, but it IS a FO (finished object)....a little lace knitter pin. The "needles" are toothpicks with beads on the end.

I didn't actually KNIT with the toothpicks (approximately a 2mm), they would be too short to handle easily. I DO own and knit with 2mm needles though.

Great idea Suzanne.......except that I don't enjoy making things more than once. Life is too short to do "repeats" when there are so many interesting and NEW things to try.

That is so adorable! If you don't mind, I'd like to swipe your idea and make one as a Christmas ornament and a pin.

The idea isn't original to me either Michelle. I found the basic pattern and the idea on the Lace Knitters Yahoo Group. The original had a centered eyelet "L" which I didn't care for, so I came up with an alternate pattern for the inside motif.
