I've seen the needle and the damage done

IMG_0473

I love colorful knitting needles. I collect em. I collect old ones and new ones. I stole the two pair that Sarah had at SnB last night. Well, I didn't really steal them, I told her that *I* wanted them. She explained that I too could have them if I went to Michaels or Beverly's. Would I go to those places? I never leave this island and Beverly's causes me to have a rash. So, she gave em to me and I gave her a pair of bamboo ones in trade. Yeah, I know that it wasn't exactly the best swap but I wanted em!

I have needles all over the house. I am sure that Mr. Yarn finds it endearing (yeah, that is the word). Here are more needles:

They are right next to my lucky lotto candle. I love my needles.

So, I came up with this idea. Remember in the 90's there was this scam on the internet and everyone was sending postcards to this little boy in England that had cancer. Only problem is that so many people sent them that the post office wacked out. Not only that but the little boy never had cancer and wasn't a little boy.

So, for a good cause send me your old and colorful knitting needles, ok?

My only concern is that we seem to be trending towards the much more dangerous looking metal needles. When I see her start to sharpen them up, I will start to worry.

Heh.

I'd send mine to you, except that I too love them and have something like 8 vases/pitchers full around the house. I am guessing I do not need to tell you that eBay is a great place to get boatloads of old needles. People are often selling entire lots that they get at estate sales. (If this is news to you, I hereby apologize to Mr. Yarn.)

See you tomorrow!

Karen telling you about eBay? Mr. Yarn must be falling off his chair by now. I'm just glad Mr. Husand hasn't noticed the price tags I neglect in removing from all my needles, yarn, etc. Of course, it took him years to catch onto the number of shoes I own! Ooops!

You need to start spamming an email with several words spelled incorrectly about the poor knitblogger who needs colorful needles to regain the will to live.

Okay! They are super tall though...I wonder what kind of envelope I can find? Hmmm...maybe I'll just keep 'em in my car until the next time I visit Yarn!. Although, mail is so much fun...
