7 x 7 Throw

I had a bunch of worsted weight acrylic yarn that I wanted to use up so I double stranded the yarn and used a larger needle size. This is just a 7 x 7 rib throw. The only thing I would do differently if I was knitting again would be to add an additional 7 stitches in garter on the other side. I didn't think about it and one side is stockinette and of course it wanted to curl.

Cro-Needle

Hi Guys. I have just been dipping into June Hiatt's exhaustive (and exhausting) tome "The Principles of Knitting" and in a section where she is talking about picking up stitches she mentions a 'cro-needle'. I had never heard of such a thing before and I looked it up. It seemed like such an obvious and brilliant idea that I immediately wanted one (some?). Any of you folks got one?
