Just to show you what’s on my needles.
I’m trying my new 1.75mm (#00) knitting needles and loving it. I’m also following a new (old – 1843) pattern for cuffs. The original was supposed to be white and red but I love the black and white stripes.
I’m only having one problem: I can’t find a wool lace yarn to use with these needles, so I have to do this with cotton thread. It also looks nice but I prefer something a little warmer for the winter.
There are 2 ways I can solve my problem:
- Can someone tell me a good site to buy yarns this thin (preferably European)? Or
- I can spin my yarn.
I like the 2nd alternative but in order to do that well without ruining my knee I need this, which is a bit expensive for me to buy now.
Oh well. I’ll just keep using cotton for now.
