So exciting!



I'm really happy about these. I've been looking at these needles for at least a year now, but I thought they were extravagant and just too much. But my projects were starting to suffer because I don't have a proper circular and I don't have much selection in sizes. I've been using the beginning to knit kit I got at Wal-Mart years ago and I splurged on a huge circular addi for a throw I made (the red thing under the scarf/pot holder below in an earlier post). But other than that, I definitely haven't had needles for really sweet projects...like socks and mittens!
Well, this was my Christmas gift, which I'm getting early so I can knit away on my way to Atlanta. I got the little note that it shipped and I just got so excited. I called Shane into the room and let him know. He laughed at me I assume because he thinks I'm cute/odd for getting so worked up over needles.
I didn't get the new wooden Harmony ones because I really love the clicking of the metal and I can just picture Amelia trying to make a pencil out of it, wearing down the tip or even snapping them in frustration. They are pretty, with their rainbow swirls, but I'll stick to what I know. And I know I really love how yarn slides on and off the metal. Everyone has a preference and the shiny nickel is mine!
We've really been keeping to the basics since I'm at home and in school so this splurge is very special.
