Why does it seem all the magazines, I like to pick up, come out all at once?Ã‚Â I had to run to the store to pick up pins to block my shawl, and there they were, four magazines I almost always pick up and one I occasionally buy.Ã‚Â I know, if I am picking up more than half of them a yearÃ‚Â I should just subscribe, but I haven’t yet.Ã‚Â I also ran thru the pattern section and picked up a booklet on adding crochet edges to fleece baby blankets.
Since I was at the craft store I picked upÃ‚Â a package of beading needles so I can start Odessa and some tiny crochet needles for beading Mrs Beeton.
I did get the pins to block the shawl, I have a history of not getting the one thing I went to the store to buy and having to go back . . . and since US Olympic Team Gold Medalists receiveÃ‚Â performance bonuses IÃ‚Â thought I should get one too.
I know opinion varies on this needle set, but (one of) the next projects I am planning calls for a 40″ US11.Ã‚Â I was planning on getting Clover Bamboos, but I have recently been told the join on the 40″Ã‚Â circs were not too good, hmmm.Ã‚Â I looked at AddiTurbos but they scare me because I have a nickle allergy and I don’t want my hands to get red and ichy,Ã‚Â I know, I’m picky like that, and I have a fear of buying them and then needing to buy another set because I don’t get gauge with the first ones.Ã‚Â This way I can just switch out tips until I find the one that works.
Here is the shawl, all dry and folded nicely.Ã‚Â The final reveal will be tomorrow when the sun is out and I can get a good pic outside.
