The letter K

Hi everyone, just a quick post for the Alpha challenge as we are off to sunny climes on Monday and I won't be posting anything for about 10 days:) I can't wait to feel the sun on these old bones!!
Back to the matter in hand and the letter this time is K,  not an easy word, it must be one of the shorter chapters in the dictionary. I was clearing up the detritus on my desk when I espied two cocktail sticks and a length of string, BINGO! So here is my page, what do you think?


Not easy knitting with cocktail sticks, I can tell you! Took me back to my college days when I made several handbags, knitted in string and lined. It's a killer on the fingers! I added a little bead to each end and the rest is fairly obvious:) 


Just thought I'd leave you with a couple of pics of Charlie from the weekend:)




Thanks for taking the time to visit and hopefully leaving a comment and I will catch up with you all in a couple of weeks.
Hasta la vista!

Wow Val - looks like you and me are midnight crafters!!! Love your take on the K word - the cocktail sticks make brilliant knitting needles, and I love the dictionary snippet.
Charlie looks so "cool" in his sunglasses - he's gorgeous, and growing up fast!

Have a fabulous sunny holiday - Hugs, Sylvia xx

Oh, how great you did for the challenge of K! Knitting with cocktail sticks would be a challenge all it's own. You do the knitting, I'll drink the cocktail!
