Jeny's Metamorph Moebius Cowl (Video and Pattern)

Hi guys! I came across this video last night and I'm pretty intrigued. Jeny (who came up with Jeny's Suprisingly Stretchy Bind Off) has made a cowl that when double and buttoned goes from being a straight tube to a moebius. And depending on how it is buttoned more twist is added, making it more snug and therefore warmer to wear.

Christmas Balls


Here are two of the Christmas Balls I made.



One was done this year (red), one last year (green). They're not quite as perfect as I'd like (being pretty detail oriented!), but they are a lot of fun to make and are great practice at stranded knitting.

Sweet Tomato Heel Socks

Has anyone tried socks using the brilliant Cat Bordhi's "Sweet Tomato Heel?" I bought the e-book last night and have done a heel-only to try the technique. I really like the smooth look as well as the ease of making it. There is no heel flap, there are no wraps to conceal, nor any stitches to pick up.

Miniature knitting (Amazing video!)

A few days ago I had posed a question about small gauge knitting needles. I got a lot of good information, thanks everyone! Just yesterday I ordered some 000 and some 000-000 (5/0] DPNs from Hiya Hiya because I would like to experiment a bit with miniature knitting.

Small gauge DPNs

I wonder if anyone has any suggestions for DPNs below US size 0. I'm looking for something like 00 or 000 and I wondered if anyone has gotten any brands that they have liked in particular and/or have held up well. And if so, where did you purchase them? I have really liked all the Knitpicks needles I have used, but they only go down to size 0. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
