Ok... In effort to catch up to my life's current events I am posting twice in one day.... Lightning strikes!!
I bought this last night during our Wednesday night knit fit. Honestly, last night I felt more like shopping & perusing knitting books than knitting. I will be making the "my so called scarf" (look under the patterns heading) with this hottie of a yarn! Super Janis, a.k.a "my knitting hero" wound it up for me. I have never used striping yarn before, it was so cool watching it form into a tasty little cake of yarn on the winder. As she wound, the cake went from red to blue, to orange, green, etc..... like an everlasting gobstopper! HYP-NO-TIZIN!
Also last night... I decided to buy a 2nd set of #7 dpns so that I can power through the 2nd sock before my final sock class on Sunday. I want to be able to practice the kitchner/BITCHner stitch on both socks in the presence of a professional. I hope it's another one of those things that everyone makes out to be harder than it really it is.
SOOO anyway... I was looking through the dpns, and I saw these little white dwarf needles. Janis mentioned how much she loved them. I said it seemed they would be too short to keep the yarn on... She explained that they are much easier to knit with because you don't have all that extra needle length just flopping around. I went home, cast on... And voila, once again... She was spot on right!
