Knitting with Pencils!

Yes indeed, I can now say that I *have* knitted with pencils! And it was remarkably easy, too!

I used cap erasers to keep yarn from going off the end, and after sharpening I applied clear nail polish to the tips to smooth the wood and keep graphite off my yarn. Then I was off!

I think I'll work on getting some better pictures (that's actually quite hard, as it turns out!) but it's a fun a little experiment. And making the knitting needles was quite easy; anyone think there's a new hexagonal knitting craze on the way?
