I've not picked up the pins much since arriving back from Dublin. I'm kind of stuck on Megs vintage cardi with all the decreases and increases and feel I might need to frog it back a bit. That's never fun. Not feeling all that well at the moment, so I'm not up to dealing with the vagaries of increases and such with the cardi.
I might well just stick with swatching up my three new yarns.
I've started with the lighter colour of the Roxy yarn.
For a slubby yarn it's knitting up quite easily.
The needles are 5.5mm that I got free with one of my knitting magazines. I'm at a loss at to which one. They are quite 'plasticy' but okay to work with.
Bamboo needles are still my favourites. Although, alas, due to not realising my own strength I managed to snap one of my 4mm bamboo needles in half :(
Roxy knits up with a slight curl and is quite varigated. Methinks it would be best suited to children's knits, scarves and hats.
