I may have mentioned once or twice before that although my knitting endeavors are now vast and constant, I had yet to knit something purely for moi. And well, now? I have! A friend of mine sported this particular pattern a few weeks back at a fantastic oyster bake I attended and was lucky enough to meet the maker. She directed me to this amazing blog and I don’t think I have stopped making them since. They knit up oh so quickly, with size 15 circulars, and big old super bulky wool. I even purchased a pair of these needles at this amazing store (which I have visited a total of 3 times in the short week that I have been here already). I have fallen quite head over heels for these new tools of mine. Knitters Pride needles are the perfect mix between bamboo and metal. They make for lovely non-slippery knitting, with the familiar swish swish sound of wood that I love oh so much. The fancy colors don’t hurt either and they are inexpensive to boot! My kind of purchase.
