I am working on my February Lady Sweater, and started the sleeve!
Do you see that twisted up circular needle? Well I decided it was time to learn the magic loop method of knitting in the round. My size 8 DPNs where wood, and I was knitting the sweater on my knitpicks options. I was afraid that my guage might be off with the change in needles so I went to knittinghelp.com and was educated. It is a great alternitive, and I am very pleased with this technique for this project.
Am I ready to swear off DPNs for good? Nah, I am a big fan of those pokey sticks. The dazzle the non-knitter. And I like that.
I don't know what the deal is with this yarn but I cannot get the color to show up right. I thought the natural light would help. No such luck.
Also, the previous post of mine was post 100! I can't believe I didn't throw a parade, or party or something to comemorate this moment. So happy 101st post to me! Woot.
Back to my magic looping. Until next time...
