The other day I was thinking about knitting and needles. I wanted to try a different cast-on method than the one I use, so I grabbed a couple of straight needles and cast on (using the two needle knit cast on), this yarn for a plain jane scarf.
http://www.patchworktimes.com. (I follow Judy's blog every day). Anyway, I asked her a question and before she even had time to read it, I thought about her post. After trying to knit on straight needles - and I've only made a few dishcloths on straight needles, I have to agree with her -- I prefer to work with the circular needles. So, today, after cleaning out my knitting mess:
I have a lot of sock yarn too -- which at the rate I knit will last me a lifetime. The worsted weight I'll use mostly for hats for kids. I also have a bit of cotton yarn for dishcloths - which I probably won't ever use. I have a bunch of long straight needles too -- might donate them, but for now I've bagged them and put them on the bottom of the Rubbermaid container.
Still waiting for the repairman -- sometime between 1 and 5 today, so now I'm off to spend some quality time knitting!
Two posts in one day -- how 'bout that!
Until next time....blessings.
