I bought the set for her at Christmas from Knit Picks. They have flexible cables instead of plastic. AND I got her the 'Cadillacs' of the bunch. Harmony Wood. The woman has been knitting since she was 13, get her some rockin' needles!
It was actually a perfect plan to try her circulars.
I started my daughter's new Yoke Sweater on my own 5mm circulars, then my mom reminded me I hadn't done a test swatch. The only 5mm she had around were the Harmony's... Nice!
So here's my swatch on the needles.
|Look at that gorgeous wood.|
|The flexible cable didn't put up a fight. No wrestling required.|
Ahhhh... and I'm back on the plastic cable circulars.
But as they say, "Patience young Grasshopper."
