Homemade Needles
I made these needles a while back, using Amy's video directions. I arraged them on a shelve with some kittens playing with yarn figurines, and I really love the way they look, but at the same time, I wonder if I should knit cozies for the mason jars, of just leave them. Any suggestions?

What if you knit cozies that only go up a little way up the jar?

Looks cute

I like it just the way it is now. Looks clean and uncluttered.

Huh? What? I'm sorry, I got distracted by the books on the left hand side of the photo... I kept thinking how I'd like to have a looksie at them. LOL

Seriously, though --- I like the way they look now. It gives a nice clean uncluttered look. But if you wanted to knit something for them, maybe a 'coaster' for the jars to sit on.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll just leave them for now.

Essancerose, those books are really fun. The first one is Knitisisms. The other three are Knit Scarves, Knit socks, and Knit Christmas Stockings.
