I HEART THESE KNITTING NEEDLES!!!
here are a few facts about these wonderful needles.
*i think every scarf (the only thing i know how to knit..lol) i have knitted with these needles
*they are size 10
*i bought then when i learned how to knit
*i love that they are wooden
*and how the yarn just glides over them
*i love how they feel in my hands
*i love how they are big but not too big
*i simply love them
the past week i have been nutso over scarf making. it is so friggin relaxing. this is prolly why i am kinda intimidated about learning how to do anything else, i'd have to count things and such :) so here are the two of i have made:
i luv this scarf. i wanted it to not have hanging ends. so i when i was done with it, i took the two ends and handstitched them together. so now when the fall/winter rolls around, i am going to loop it around my neck. i love it.
this right here is pure heaven. i bought this yarn the day i learned how to knit and have been sitting on it (well not literally) since i bought it almost a year ago. i didn't want to use it. i luv the color and it is so darn soft i didn't want to mess anything up. i decided to just go for it, its only an hour+ ride to go buy more. i am so happy with how it turned out. i know its just the basic knit stitch, but the yarn really makes it.
maybe one day, i will go back to and learn how to purl correctly and knit something other than a scarf ;)
