New Stuff

I had to order replacement needles after a few of my favorite size 1's went missing. While I was at it, I treated myself to a few other things-most notably a set of 5" doublepoints in Sunstruck. I was all excited about this new needle color until I realized-it's the same color as all the zillions of bamboo needles I already own. I do have to say that their point is way sharper, which is a giant plus in their favor.

I had to throw a bit of yarn in the order because Daughter has yet another friend expecting a little bundle of joy. This one, another boy, is due in March so Daughter wanted a St.Patty's themed pair of baby socks and newborn hat. Beanstalk should do the trick.

Seeing that I am either losing or breaking my doublepoints on a regular basis these days, I decided to also throw some needle protectors in the cart. Of course they only work if you use them so I hope I can get in the habit of using them.

Arriving the same day was another box of Valentine's material from Connecting Threads that I hope will keep Daddio busy while I get some knitting done.


  1. Beanstalk is a great color for a MARCH baby.

    I love the needle protectors...perhaps I need some of those too!

  2. Love shopping for crafty things - that green looks so beautiful! Can't wait to see what you make with it.

  3. love the green. I have a baby coming in April and don't know if a boy or girl...that would be a really good color. have to go shopping...........
