I know this has been done to death but I finally get it together to provide some OH&S within the family home in respect to my knitting!  Last week I finally bought some tubing to encase the ends of my needles:

It’s such a great idea as it keeps my needles together, covers dangerous points that little boys love to play with and makes sure the needles can’t be pulled out and stitches lost!  I bought 50cm of 2 different sizes which cost a grand total of $1.35, now I have plenty to play with …..wish I had done it sooner.
