i typed this once already and not sure what happened to it but here we go again
as i think i already mentioned i finished knitting the cardigan i had been working on it is now being blocked as we speak tommorrow i will attempt to put it together i am still not very good at that
i decided to knit a hat with the leftover wool which is nearly finished but i wanted to use the magic loop method to make the ties for it so i brought up the instructions on this site and went to work i was becoming more and more frustrated how could something that looked so easy be so difficult
the problem was i was using one of my old aluminum circular needles which wasn't very flexible and everything kept getting tangled up
i had the bright idea of trying my new interchangable circular needle from knit picks and voila it was as easy as it looked first try and i was on my way
i am not so sure this site is good for me now the many many needles i own are not good enough for me, i used to use acrylic yarn almost exclusively and now i am trying to think of a way to get rid of all of my stash so i can buy the nice wool knitpicks offers
one thing that is true using the right products for your project defineatly makes a difference in the end result
on the postive side it encourages me to go to work today so i can make money to buy more wool and such i will keep that thought in my head all day
speaking of work i must get going i hope everyone has a great day and you accomplish what you set out to

Until I found KP, I rarely bought the good yarn, because the stuff online and at LYS was really cost prohibitive... and all the needles were terrible! But KP's prices are so reasonable, that it is really hard not to purchase their high quality products. --S
