Knitting Needles!!

I think it might have something to do with all these chilly winter days...I used to have some lovely big chunky jumpers that I knitted for myself which were great to put on as an extra layer when trying to keep warm about the house. Also, I've been seeing a lot of lovely knitted things about recently (probably all that looking around Etsy) and it's all got me thinking that it's way too long since I did any knitting! Well actually it must be about 15 years!! I really used to enjoy it even though I probably started twice as many projects as I finished, but I suppose I stopped when we were travelling around as all my needles and wool supply got left at home.

So, I was just thinking of taking up the needles again when Pennydog at Crafteroo showed us her latest resin (or are they polyester?) project... and it turned out to be gorgeous sparkly knitting needles!! Well I had to have a pair of those - they were just the thing to get me started again! So I ordered a pair from her Folksy shop yesterday and they arrived this morning!! (How's that for service!!) They're a lovely sparkly purple...

So, now I have the needles... next I have to decide what to knit... something simple maybe to start with?
