We had an amazing anniversary (married for 21 years, 😊) hike on the weekend. Deep in the bush, in winter, in the middle of nowhere.
Now I seem to have acquired this horrible cold that is going ’round and I have woken up again way too early with that dry cough. It will take it’s course and I will be fine, so I shall stop winging right now.
The upside of waking up early is sneaking in a bit of knitting time and HUZZAAH I have finished the socks I started in 🇩🇪. This is a pattern from my aunt’s old knitting book.
For my little project I also received from my aunt this gorgeous hand made project bag – I just love it 😍 .
I have quickly filled it with some yarn for the next small project – a hat for my brother in law Chris, which he has requested years ago. I know how cold it is here now, so I can imagine how cold it is in Canberra, so I must get on.
I treated myself to some fancy new knitting needles in Germany, since I could feel a ‘sock-knit-obsession’ coming on. Not sure what to say about them.
The tiny circular needle is strange to hold in the hands, since there is nothing to hold on to! They are great though if you knit a pattern that spans over a significant width, possibly over your dpns.
The set of light dpns is lovely, but since I knit fairly tightly, it irritates me when the yarn gets stuck in that tiny ridge between the wood and the metal. Am I hard to please? I simply think there is not really anything wrong with my ancient (bent) sets of dpns… sometimes I think all this new stuff is just a jazzy marketing ploy…
Congratulations on your wedding anniversary!! It seems like a very nice way to celebrate together in the nature and peaceful surrounding!
Lovely socks and beautiful wool shown in the knitting bag.. and I have the same tiny circular needle 😉
What do you think of the tiny knitting needle? Did it work for you?
I think it was good for use with items of small circumference. It was a bit odd to start with, but got used to it eventually.
Not that I used it much, because I haven’t had time or energy to do much since I started working…
