Knitting Tools
Living in a tourist town has allowed me the opportunity to meet so many amazing people. One day a well tailored lady ran into the shop clutching a ball of bright purple/orange yarn. She then  presented me with two straws. Dangling between the straws was this very beautiful hand dyed yarn. She had been stuck at the airport and in desperation used two drink straws to begin her project. We determined that drink straws were a US 8 sized needle and so we thus proceeded to transfer the project onto the needles. Well, this has got me thinking...........What is the most unusual item you have used as tools to crochet or knit?
