Can you tell me what I was thinking when I bought these? I bought them a couple of years ago at "Stiches West" (yarn show). They are hand blown glass knitting needles. I have had them displayed for two years now. I hate em. They are stupid. The cats knock them onto the ground in the middle of the night and I almost have a heart attack. So, get rid of them you say? Oh sure and admit to "Mr Yarn" that I don't adore them and that they weren't worth every penny I paid for them? No way.
On the knitting front:
Hoorah! I mastered stockinette after 40 something years ( I am not really THAT old I just knit before I was born) of knitting. I even got an inch or two done last night without ripping the damn thing out.
Oh and a brainstorm. Check this out
I came up with this new invention. It is a great place to hang you hand knits and also your project bags. Even the significant other can use it for their clothes and stuff. THEN when company comes over you can take the stuff off of it and pretend that you exercise on this expensive piece of equipment. Only glitch is that your friends and family wonder if you have a glandular problem because they don't see you losing weight at all.
