Re: KAL ~ January 2013

I'm using super wash because he won't be in cloth . I can't remember the colorway.
I've been knitting for many years and used to have a HC with a friend before taking a much needed break

Re: KAL ~ January 2013

They are clover brand... they were gifted so I'm not 100% sure! Let me see if I can find them. I can knit socks so much faster with them! DPN's aren't so bad except for when leaving home and around small fingers that like to pull them out!

9 inch length won't work if you are knitting socks for a size less than 9 inches around though.

my iPhone is a trixie little hobbit that never really says what I mean!

Re: KAL ~ January 2013

I always say I am going to join in this thread and never do lol

Anyway, I am working on a ruffle scarf for myself. It is going to take awhile, I rarely get time to knit. I swear every time I pick up needles, Amelia climbs on my lap and says no no no, while trying to take my needles.
