I was online to order needles and crochet hooks today. Instead I am so excited to see what DyakCraft is developing. Of course, the rest of the Ravelry knitting world might know. That’s ok, I will wait and see.
So, I bet you think I will go on and on about how I think these are the only needles I use. Wrong. I have many other brands and depending on what is on needles, handy or that I own, I use most of them. (Except, I own a set of Signatures, which I do not like.)
Which brings me to why I was looking for needles this morning. I was looking for a better needle for knitting in the bathtub. My DyakCraft are good, but I don’t have this size in dpn. My Blue Sky Alpacas or Bryson rosewood are what I have tried instead. But something about that level of humidity and they feel almost tacky. Not truly harming the finish, but the slickness changes and I feel like I am knitting against the grain. I knew this because it has happened before, so usually I just knit socks in the tub. But lately I have been enjoying preemie and baby gift knitting and much of that is on a size 4 and up.
Good news I did order a set of 4-9 dpn but I don’t know if there is a wait or not. But I am sure they will be here by swimming pool knitting season. 🙂
So, any bathtub/hot tub knitters with needle suggestions?
