Did you know garter stitch spirals?
I've been trying to come up with ideas for simple projects using yarn scraps that I could sell in my online store. I finally hit on tiebacks and tassels plus flowers and other accessory items. While knitting a narrow band for a tieback, I discovered that it was spiraling as I knit and turned out to be a wonderful surprise. Check it out:



I can't wait to knit up a whole bunch of these and turn them into clusters and see how they look. Wouldn't this make a great Christmas tree garland done in something metallic? Imagine icicle ornaments, too. I love it when the ideas start flowing.
