jazz ’em up…

A while ago I got a set of bamboo knitting needles from Aldi (of all places), and I just used them for the first time the other day. As nice as they are to use, they were a little boring to look at.

So, I grabbed some acrylic paint, and painted the bobbles on the ends of the needles. Each set got the same colour, so I could easily grab a matching pair in a hurry.

After the paint dried, I added little white dots, using the head of a pin. I left them overnight to make sure that the thicker dots would dry out completely. The next morning, I gave them a coat of clear nail polish, to protect their new paint job, and make them glossy!

No longer boring!
