I’m not a fan of double pointed needles but when it comes to the decreases on a hat … I have to switch from a small circular to double pointed needles… 5 of them – 4 to hold the stitches and one to knit them off …. only the other day I came across flexible double pointed needles … they have a small cable between two needles so I only need 3 not 5. For those of you that don’t knit that might not seem like much but for the knitters in the crowd, I expect it’s pretty wonderful … unless you already knew about them!!
I finished the Corner to Corner blanket last night … no photo yet … so I started another hat tonight and for once, I can’t wait to get to the crown decreases so I can try out the new needles!
I did have to wait to cast on until we got home from dinner … Keith’s nephews (yes, they’re twins) live about 45 minutes away so we met up with them for dinner before they head off to spend Christmas with their family.
