What kind of knitting needles are you?

You are bamboo.Warm, cozy, and thoughtful, you take your time and enjoy how things feel, smell, and taste. You love the craft and beauty of traditional things, and you value the comfort and experience of knitting as much as the results. But while you are reveling in your warm cozies, don't get stuck. Warm is wonderful, but so is the whole wide world!

ag (pattern from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation by Debbie Stoller) knitted in cotton

Gryffindor Scarf (pattern from for my little sis

A lace heart scarf (pattern can be obtained from

A fluffy beanie (pattern from Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook By Debbie Stoller). The silk blend gives it some shine.

A Tweed scarf (pattern from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation by Debbie Stoller). One side of the scarf is a 2 x 1 rib and the other is a mock-cable rib. It was quick and easy :)

A beaded purse I made to match my Prom dress (back in the day). The beads are incorporated into the knitting.

, I am working on my biggest project ever. I can't describe it or show pictures because it is a surprise gift. I just hope to finish it on time. Wish me luck! Happy knitting!
