Pretty green glass

Today, The Boy had a school event that took us to the far side of the city … where there is a lovely store that sells beads and gems and rocks and all kinds of neat things.
I found this pretty green glass bead in a dish, and it just begged to be made part of a supported spindle.
With a little bit of spare fibre tucked into the hole to make it fit tightly on the metal knitting needle I had with me, I was able to grant its wish:

Thrift store metal needle + four dollar bead = inexpensive yet pretty and functional fibre tool.

    So creative - it is very pretty to look at too!

  2. Well, it's not as pretty as some of the gorgeous ones out there but it has it's own charm. It works, it's lovely to look at, and it cost less than a Starbucks Latte, so hey, it's all good!
