This was such a fun card to make! My knitting group does a Secret Santa gift each year, filled with all kinds of fibery goodness. I had so much fun putting my gift together, then got to the card.
I was struck with this idea and went with it. The hard part about knitting with toothpicks instead of knitting needles is that they are so short. The circumference wasn't difficult because the needles I use to knit socks are probably smaller than the toothpicks. Then I got to the ball of yarn - it's so tiny that it didn't want to stay together. I finally called Lynne' in and she tied a tiny piece of yarn around it.
Not sure I'll be knitting with toothpicks on a regular basis, but I am very pleased with how this card turned out. :)
