Here I am, on my way to placing second in the “I Can Knit With Anything!” contest:
Knitting with a three inch dowel and a strange metal contraption that looked like an opened up paper clip (the hook part made knitting a trifle difficult). I believe while casting on, I was indeed heard to refer to it as a pathetic excuse for a knitting needle. But I Can Knit With Anything!
My friend CeCe won! (with a toothbrush and a spatula, if I remember correctly)
Thanks to Stephen of Hizknits for taking the picture.
