I’m in love

Posted by & filed under my life.

Valentine’s day seems to be a good day to make this confession.

I just fell in love.

With these knitting needles:

Nova Needles

I just knit most of a scarf on these blunt plastic things:

They were the only needles available in size 15 at the craft store.

They worked, but it was a struggle sometimes to get the end of the needle under the two yarns I was knitting together. Slowed me down and caused a couple of unwanted mistakes.

So last night I decided to go to the local knitting store and get some new ones. I thought I was going to run out of yarn for a project I was doing so I wanted to get another skein of that, as well.

“Do you have any size 15 needles?” I asked the sales person. “All I could find at the craft store were some plastic ones and the point is dull and they aren’t real great to work with.”

She looked and brought out these:

Look at those points!

“I’ll take them!” I exclaimed.

I used them last night and what a difference! They are lightweight, and smooth, and the sharper tips were just what I needed. I think I’ll be getting more of this brand (Knitter’s Pride – Nova) as I fill in the sizes I need for my needle collection.

As I said, I’m in love.

Sorry, Andy.

    Knitting is a craft in which two needles along with thread or yarn are used to create fabric pieces or garments by creating loops in the yarn. Knitting can be used to create many types of fabric, from framed knitting artwork to sweaters, afghan quilts, throws, blankets, mittens, or even bedroom slippers.`'”‘
