I was knitting along last night on my trusty #1 dpn's and heard a snap. Apparently I have used and abused the poor things so much that one of them snapped. So I was off at lunch today to buy more dpn's. I bought an entire assortment of Cystal palace double points. Seems now all my future projects are gloves or socks . I promised myself that I would just buy the needles and split before something caught my eye. I was unsucessful and now have yet another project. Also purchased was a great pewter sweater pin of a sea serpant or some sea creature.
The yarn will be good for a lace weight scarf from my new knitting book (Christmas gift from Nancy). Beautiful colored yarn of wool , soy and silk.
