I will be using cubics needles from Knitter's Pride from now on whenever I need dpn's!! They, like all KP needles, have great points and these are made of beautiful rosewood. Needless to say, the cross-cut square shafts make it super easy to pick-up even the most splitty yarn. I only have #1 and #6 sizes...time for more!
Went into one of my LYS' on Wednesday and she had 12 copies of this book. I was lucky enough to buy one. I definitely like that tank style dress that uses the short rows, and there are two shawls that I can't wait to make with some Noro sock yarn I have in my stash.
my LYS isn't that local and doesn't carry some of my favorite yarns. this tool is so great to have at home. it gives me the freedom to order everything i need from jimmy beans, then wind my own center pull balls at home. super easy to use straight from the box.
I have used Madelinetosh Vintage, Tosh DK, Sport, Pashmina and Lace. I love all of them. They are crisp enough for excellent stitch definition and yet soft and pliable. The colors are so gorgeous, it's difficult picking just one. The quality and colors are consistent, no knots, no twisting. Sometimes you have to wait awhile to get your order filled because they dye in small batches. But it's worth it.
