That's What Friends Are For......



A friend of mine who knits spotted these knitting needles made out of toothpicks on Deb Valder's blog.  (I haven't found the original designer - help?)  And being such a good friend she made a set, cast on a few stitches and delivered it to me. I added Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Jolly Holiday DSP and the image from Hand Knit and followed the sketch from Connie and Mary.  The sentiment is sweet but actually it's my friends that keep me from unraveling.......................
