I keep forgetting

There are a few things I have been meaning to talk about & I just keep forgetting.

So, here goes.

First, I love, love, love the new Knitpicks Harmony needles.

They are smooooooth. They are fast, faster than any other wood needle and my Denise sets. They have that warmth and lightweight you associate with wood but knit more like a smooth metal, ie Inox or Aero. The finish is ridiculously even. So much so that it shines with no flaws to be seen. The tips are perfectly tapered and come to the perfect point appropriate for the size of the needle. The needles in the picture are the options tips in size 10. They aren’t dull at the point like most wood  or metal needles are. I have no trouble doing double decreases with the Malabrigo in the blanket (which has a tendency to split terribly with dull needle tips).

Now let me tell you about the dpn’s. Oh. My. Gosh.

They are now my #1, hands down, favorite needles for socks.

Unfortunately, they are backordered for who knows how long. I will still order the sock needle set & have a wonderful surprise when it just shows up at my house!

I also finished another Calorimetry yesterday, this one out of SWS on size 7 needles. I cast on 96 instead of the amount in the pattern. It makes it a much better fit.

There was one more thing I wanted to mention that I had been forgetting but now, surprisesurprise, it escapes me!

When I think of it I will be sure to pass it on!

Have a wonderful Monday!

  1. I still haven’t used my Harmony needles yet but am looking for a project to start just to try them.

    I love the SWS yarn in that Caloriometry. Do you like it better than a panta??

  2. Now this is a fun keep-your-head-and-ears-warm thing! I love the way it buttons in the back. And the buttons you found are just great! You really have been busy with lots of little patterns. And I love the knitting needles. I think I saw some crochet hooks like them somewhere, but I don’t remember. There are some new bamboo handle/aluminum hook crochet hooks offered by Susan Bates now. I think I might have to order a set to see how they feel. Never tried wood hooks before.

  3. Thanks for the needle review! And you made it so easy for the weakest of the weak to just link up and buy a set of dpns. Backordered or not, that’s a good deal!

  5. I have one clover bamboo crochet hook and like it. I don’t use it that often though so I would have to say I don’t like it as much as my steel hooks.
