I also picked these up. I've seen a variety of them online but haven't really needed them. Of course -When they're right in front of my face - oh, I just couldn't resist!!! I still kind of prefer my plain ol plastic ones, (these slightly bug me sometimes with the dangle and all) but they're just too cute not to have! I'll get used to it I'm sure!
I also wanted to try one of these. The Owner told me they've been hard for her to keep in stock. I always just throw my sock WIP's in my little pink knitting bag and I've only lost one needle as far as I can remember - but it's another knitting gadget so I had to have it.
Here's what tiny little progress I've made on my Knitpicks Best Girlfriend sock pattern. I got sidetracked by something i think...
Well, here's one of the "somethings"- just a simple ribbed hat for my father in law (he's from Indiana, hence the color). See one of my handy-dandy new stitch markers? I don't really need it for the pattern, but it's fun to use it anyway! This is made from Cleckheaton Country 8 ply DK weight. I've never tried it before so I hope it washes up nice and gets softer. (Ravelry's been so helpful in helping me to be sure I've made an okay fiber choice!)
Since Thanksgiving I haven't been knitting much because of Ravelry. I tend to go back and forth on how much time I spend on there. It's just so fun and I don't realize how long I've been on sometimes (like almost all weekend!) So glad to see you guys there too! Hopefully I'll have some finished things to put on there soon.
