I wasn’t planning to visit any 2nd hand shops today, but decided to drop in to 1 (or 4) on my way home.
The first shop had baskets of fabric, kind of sorted. I found these: a biggish piece of green linen, plus a tiny bit of paisley velvet plus some offcuts – not sure what fabric it is but it feels lovely.
Plus these cable needles – ones with bends in them so the needle doesn’t fall out while I am trying to juggle three needles in two hands.
I think the Clover ones will work best – they’re not metal, I hate knitting with metal needles.
This is what I’m knitting:
A friend of mine received a lovely scarf as a gift. From Paris. With pom-poms on the end. So I’m trying to recreate my own version, it’s been slow going with the cable needle troubles but hopefully I’ve solved that problem now.
