One would think, considering how long I have been knitting, that I would have accumulated a set of every size needle that I could ever need.
One would, alas, be wrong, which is why this evening I was sending out frantic ‘hey, does anyone have a set of DPNs in size 9?’ messages to my knitting friends.
Luckily a friend came through, because knitters are always good in a crisis. But I know what I need to add next time someone does a Knitpicks order.
Remember what I said yesterday about picots?
I wasn’t lying. Look at them. Look at all those horrid little picots!
I like the center of this one but I am not so much a fan of the arms. See comment above re. picots if you are wondering why.
Making a snowflake a day for Thingadailies.
The picots really are quite pretty though. This is one of my favorites. On the other hand, I didn’t have to make it…
It’s not so much that they’re a pain to make; it’s that every single picot then requires its own pin during the blocking stage. And for a teeny tiny snowflake, that often adds up to a LOT of pins.
