I tried to be strong… I really did. Yesterday while IQ was stitching I was working at the computer. I finished my task… Idle minds are the devil’s workshop! I got to thinking…
I really NEED some more knitting needles so I can get 2 pairs of socks going at one time. (I know…. that sounds like I am HOOKED on knitting!) And JUST in case something were to happen to ONE of the needles I have, I would be dead-in-the-water until I could order another one and wait for it to get here. (We are in the boonies with no yarn/knitting supplies anywhere near.)
After this purchase I need to block knitpicks.com from my computer for a while. Four new sock yarns will soon be heading my way.
Oh, my friend Felici! Your wonderfully soft squishiness is so enticing to me!
OH… and of course the 2 different sizes of knitting needles. Since I use 2 circular needles (knitting one sock at a time) it would be terrible if something happened to one of them, and I HAVE had that. Just let me say that size 1 needles can and do bend when you cram them into a knitting bag that is not quite large enough for your project. Voice of experience talking here.
Ahhhhh… Stroll handpainted… your beautiful interweaving of colors delights my senses as I zoom through knitting socks!
And also on my list of supplies arriving…. those wonderful yarn darning needles with the bent tip. I keep loosing my darning needles.
They creep out of my package when I am not looking. Perhaps they blend in with the woodwork when I set them down on the end table next to my chair. I have lost 2 packages recently, so I just ordered 2 more. I am currently using a needle the size of a size 4 knitting needle to weave thread tails… not a pretty picture!
Note that I am not affiliated with knitpicks… just a VERY satisfied customer.
Hurry up knitpicks! Since I chose free shipping it will take about 10 days for my package to meander from Washington state all the way down to LA. That is OK… I have plenty to be doing but I am so anxious to have some new yarns to squish and drool over. Don’t say it!!! (I have plenty.)
LALALALALALALALALALALALALA!!! I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!
