Ordinarily Big Needle Knitting is not my forte.
That being said, however, I must say I am rather enjoying the mindless, easy and quick project I am currently working on.
Normally I prefer perfect little stitches made on needles ranging from size 4 to 7.
I knit Continental and am a bit on the loose side so smaller needles are more in my usual realm.
When a sock pattern calls for size 3 needles my mind automatically says,
And I reach for the same size 1 dpn's I do all my socks on.
But tiny knits are more time consuming and sometimes it is FUN to do something
This is going to be a neckwarmer for my friend Diane's daughter Hannah.
Neither of them is a knitter and she saw one like it and is dying to have one.
So off it will go to Lexington, Kentucky in a few days.
It's just a simple garter stitch that I will put 3 big buttons on when it is done.
I haven't purchased the buttons yet.
I wanted to see it finished first.
Aren't the colors pretty?
Hannah is a natural redhead like my youngest daughter Chelsea, so this should be real pretty on her.
And check out those mondo needles!
Brittany, Size 17.
I ordered them several years ago for.....
who remembers what.
They DRIVE ME NUTS!
I almost always work with circular needles as well as small ones.
WE DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET THE JOB DONE!
As soon as this job is done I will show you the end result.
Tootles for now.
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
