Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

 

Ball Band Babes Unite

There have been a lot of snickers out in the Knitosphere about people who are addicted to knitting Ball Band washcloths. Pfft! I say. We are babes. We could cable if we wanted to, we could lace if the mood moved us. The snickering has driven some BBB to go underground. Now we can recognize each other. Ball Band earrings. You know you want to do it :-)
Size 0000 needles using sock yarn. I made two for each earring and fused them together. That way they look nice from each side. I need to make a run to Wally World to get the earring findings. Except my family has taken my car keys away from me. They feel I need intervention. I will escape, I will knit. I will be a BBB (ball band babe)

LOL If the eyes hold up, they are going to my knitter friends. They could be hung off jump rings as stitch markers.
I like earrings better. I feel the need for some glitz
Debbie I got the needles from here

Scroll down, it is a set of sock knitting needles. I like them cause the each size is a different color. One of the needles is already curved. I must need some stress relief or something ;-)
They are only 000, not 0000 not even I am that mad.
