New Toys: The Denise Knitting Needle Kit

In the 80's, I was at the height of my Avid Knitting Phase.  I had collected a vast array of knitting tools - circular needles, straight needles, double pointed needles, measuring tapes, devices to wind yarn and measure gauge.  Without a trip to the knitting store I could invariably lay my hands on whatever size needle in whatever form I needed and go to work on a new project.

Then came a move to Boulder, Colorado, graduate school, a new relationship, all quickly followed by more moves, opening up my pottery studio, yada yada yada...with the result that knitting needles and various other tools got left behind, sometimes one at a time, leaving me with a set of two or three #9 double pointed needles, sometimes en masse, leaving me without a single 24" #8 circular needle.

I Believe Alcohol Was Involved

I just want to give a big thanks to Knitterguy Kev for getting together with me last night and 'trying' to teach me how to knit two socks at one time on one circ.  Thanks for both his knowledge and his patience.

The process is still a bit confusing for me but I am sure the dust will settle on that shortly.

So far I've managed to create the prettiest green rats nest from all the yarn, tails and cable, and that from just pulling the work out of my knitting bag this morning!  How's that for a no hassle project.

Oh Well back to it..........
