[there is a photo for this, just need to introduce camera to computer)

Pattern : 302 from Knitty

Yarn : Strawberry liquorice bootlaces

Needles: chopsticks

Time Taken : 30 mins

New : knitting with sweets, knitting with chopsticks

Because I was disappointed with the Mulberry I made these as a fun present for the FGM – they made her laugh and to be honest I think she preferred them.

Bit of a pain to knit, as its been pointed out on Ravelery the “yarn” does have a tendency to break if you are not careful – also if you can only get short lengths then you have to tie them together which makes for a bit of a bulky knit in places.  I have plenty of yarn left over (if kids don’t eat it) so may have another go and experiment with ways of splicing the strands together.

Husband was the one to deliver the present to FGM who he regards as his “adopted sister” – he was not to sure about telling a sibling that she had to “keep her knickers moist, otherwise they would break…” !
