Flex knitting needles

Have you seen or used Flex knitting needles? This is what they look like if you haven't. They are just wonderful. I will never go back to the aluminum needles again..even if I have all of the sizes in 2 lengths.. I now am collecting all the sizes. They so far come in the lengths of 20 inches. they are made with Bamboo and are made by Clover..well, that is what we are collecting. This is a close up.
This photo shows you me knitting 4 at time..with the circular size 8 bamboo at 16 inches, I was doing 2 at a time. I use two totes to hold two balls of yarn

This photo shows 4 of the knitting part done. I now have to crochet a row of sc and then the next row will be crocheting the beads on.

I have them stacked in rows on how they are to sewn..I put it down because it was very boring sewing in strips..or whatever you call it..but I am now going to sew them by hand..so I have other revenues of art that I can create...It it my Watercolor Wizardly quilt. It is from a photo that Fr. Rick took on his sabbatical in Israel. I am looking for the photo and the class so I put a photo here on the blog, so look forward to it..this out to be interesting sewing squares that are one and half inch square..lol I had with these pieces the ideas of what I was going to do in adding the flowers..ribbon embroidery..I can not wait to get started..was tomorrow buy dh did not help me get my second studio set up for me..I have about 3 tables that I can lay my pieces in different stages at I sew...it is also a lot cooler in there..as I am not putting the room ac up and going to be calling Sears to fix our ac/heat unit..going to cost some money..
