When it comes to knitting needles, I am the Goldilocks of the crafting world.
Too slippery, too cold, too squeaky, too likely to cause a severe skin reaction…
but this needle is juuuuuuuust right
2.25 mm diameter, 100cm circumference KnitPro Symphonie circular needle. Aww, yeah!
See, I’ve discovered that I really like making socks two-at-a-time, toe-up using the Magic Loop technique. I’m more likely to finish both socks, more likely to try them on and actually get them to fit but also less likely to lose a needle or (my personal favourite) start knitting with two circular needles and somehow end up with one!
While I was ordering this bowl of porridge perfection (a metaphor too far?) I also spied this little beauty
Perfectly matching pretty much anything I’ve knit!
In addition to the shawl pin I also added to my (slowly) growing catalogue of crochet patterns
From L-R: Inside Crochet Issue 7 (Apr/May 2010), Interweave Crochet Winter 2009 and IC Spring 2010.
I’ve spied a couple of things I really like the look of from each issue.
No ear update this time; I think you’ve suffered enough!
