As an early birthday present Mr. Fox ordered a set of circular needles for me....I am in LOVE! oh knitting is such bliss with these needles. Goodbye achy arms. What a joy it is to have the weight of the garment in my lap rather than on the needles. I got the 'Knit Pro Nova Metal Interchangeable Needles - Deluxe Set ' and I think they are marvellous. Smooth and light needles, the stitches just seem to fly off the needles. Would recommend 'The Yarn Queen' website for great service and super quick postage. What a great Mr. Fox I have...I do rather fancy him too.
I have started a shawl with some gorgeous rainbow yarn Ma. Fox had generously added to my stash, so inspired by blog 'Crochet with Raymond' and her bold use of colour I cast on a shawl. I chose a simple pattern in order to get used to my new needles. The 'Insignia Shawl' from the Knitscene Summer 2011 issue.
