I was browsing patterns on Ravelry and happened upon this. Isn't it a riot? The pattern's currently in German, but the author states that there will be an English translation soon. AUTSCH! - das etwas andere Nadelkissen roughly translates to ouch, that was another needle kiss. The author is gitwerg. If you're on Ravlery, check out the pattern to see more photographs. Yay for another use for leftover sock yarn.
