When I went to Hobby Lobby to buy another skein of the darker green (I couldn't believe they actually had one skein of the same dye lot I had bought more than a month before!) to finish the blanket, several multi-color yarns jumped into my basket and asked me to make them into hat and mitten sets to donate to kids at the local school in October. Here are the ones I've completed so far.
And finally, some tiny slippers for Calla and matching ones for big, three-year-old sister Lily.

About a month ago, on KnitTalk Yahoo! Group, a woman said she was going to an estate sale that was advertized as having a lot of knitting stuff. I wondered if there would be any all-nylon, circular knitting needles. She asked what sizes I was interested in and I said any size, any length. These 17 are what she found for me.
These needles are apparently no longer made. I had bought several back in the 60's or 70's, and have realized recently that I like them much better than some of the more expensive needles I have. There are duplicates, but then I usually have several projects going at once.
