good morning everyone
last thursday i placed an order for some wool and needles from knitpicks, today i admitted to myself i probably will not get my order until next week knitpicks are fast but still it takes time and as you know we have labour day in there i will try to remain patient
the wool is for a cardigan that i shall be knitting as a christmas gift for my granddaughter maici, To help pass the time i started a new project, something i had never tried before, a cardigan knit in the round from the top to the bottom.
The pattern called for bulky weight yarn which i found 17 balls of off white in my basement I shouldn't admit this but i didn't even realize i had it , i guess this is a good thing using some of my stash right?
The pattern is just plain and i really like the neck down method very easy and no seams even the sleeves are done at the same time at least to a certain point then you put the stitches on a holder and finish them on four needles after the body
i haven't knit on circular needles for years not since my fairisle sweater craze, and i do have a complaint about that
my fingers are killing me i only have aluminium needles and i think that is the problem, the wool doesn't slide and also my fingers rub on the needles as i knit the continental style
i am anxious to get the new zephyer needles as i think they will be better, perhaps someone who already has them could comment on this
well i guess i shall get back to my knitting only 4 inches left in the body
