Can you guess where this is going? I know the issues are all mine. I have bought needles and either lost a few or have them in some long forgotten project. If I were organized and diligent that wouldn’t be an issue. But I am not. So I find myself needing needles.
I thought I had a set of DyakCraft needles in US 8. I cast on last night thinking I would switch today in daylight. No such luck I have 9s. 😦
Ordering isn’t going to happen. Soybean yields are about half the norm and we will be lucky to have half the corn. Again, budget so my issue.
So I am pressing on with a combo of Brittany and something Rosewood from Hobby Lobby.
Why the combo? I prefer the Rosewood surface but don’t have 4. 😦
Why did I wish for DyakCraft in morning’s light? (I wish I had a prize and could make this a contest.) Here are the choices:
I will not add
5. Artist made
6. US made
Because in this case it is one feature. What drew me to them in the first place….. 4. Length!
I am fighting angry octopuses over here. 😦
Good news is it is causing frequent breaks. 3 loads of laundry and next year’s daffodils planted. And posting this.
But I am drawn to get more hats done. While I fight my 8″ needles I will be thinking about DyakCraft’s upcoming Act Three, other needles i long to try, babies with warm heads, upcoming holidays, and things that bring joy to our lives. 🙂
Next break maybe I will straighten up my knitting. Possibly I will find some
stray dpns. 🙂
Hope you find something unexpected today and joy!
