I have been knitting for 33 years and I have more needles than a methadone clinic but I never have just the right one I need. Ever.

I'd like to figure out the mathematical equation for how many types of needles-length and diameter there actually are.

I own all of the Knit Picks needle kits but still have to order needles on a regular basis when starting a new project.

Interchangeable, straight, double pointed, circular, nickle, plastic or wood, I think that I should have them all by now.

They are stuck in every nook and cranny of my house but I always need a pair that I don't already own. This is just crazy.


  1. It sounds like you have some sort of disorder.

  2. Dear Zak,
    Insanity is inherited. You get it from your kids.

  3. I am so glad I'm not the only one! It seems every other project I need a needle I don't have. It's absolutely insane. Ditto on the insanity. The more kids you have the more insane you are!
