DIY Knitting

In an effort to organize my stash a bit, I decided that I needed a niddy noddy. I searched the E-stores and then decided that I needed a CHEAP niddy noddy. I have one made of recycled marshmellow shooters (PVC pipe). The instructions can be found here .

I also need a swift. Again - browse the online stores and decide that I need a Cheap Swift. I don't yet have the PVC for this one - but looky here - Instructions! I will be getting the PVC for this soon!

Now all I need is a ball winder.

I am going to TRY to go to String, a new knitting cafe, tomorrow. The Tulsa MeetUp is scheduled at 6, but I figure that they are open until 8. The boys and I can eat a sandwich then head out!

I am starting my Kiri tonight. I'll see how far I get before promising a progress photo!

Hey! I followed a link here (from 24 Knits, of course) and by some stroke of luck, your post contained exactly what I was looking for.
I'm going to start on those right away, and be sure to let us know when you find directions for making a ball winder (I'm so cheap, it hurts).

"Now all I need is a ball winder."

Must be a knitting thing. If you're not a knitter, this sounds painful.
